So we'll be making these shows very special and doing our utmost to give every single person there an unforgettable night. Keane fans are the best in the world, always singing their hearts out, and we feel like our music is at its best when it is echoing around those big rooms and being sung by thousands of people - it's a magical thing for us to be a part of and we can't wait to experience it again."
