This really didn't help my madness. Ten days until I see them!!
you are going to see them again! awesomeness!

They really do like to talk with the fans. It's amazing. I didn't feel nervous around them either. I even joked a bit with Tom when he came over. Now if I only can be this way around Bono and Co. hahaha.. ya rite..

YES! I'm expecting a special show. The Shepherd's Bush Empire seems to be an amazing place and it'll be great to see them in such a small venue after the huge O2 Arena.

Yes they seem to be laid back and really take their time with the fans. I've heard such funny stories about the meet & greets! I haven't met Keane but I have met Bono & co and I can tell that they too are very approachable and relaxed (even though they have a couple more bodyguards around, lol!). Fingers crossed you get to meet U2 as well!

Yeah, I have met Bono and Edge and they are down to earth and approachable but yeah a tad more security. But it's not as relaxed with them. The atmosphere is quite chaotic at times.

I'm still recovering. Youtube has a lot of video from the DC show and check out keane's website for pix from their experience in DC.

omg your pics are so much better then mine and I went to the Boston show tonight and had front row! I was the end seats to the right (in the middle section though) which was a bit further from the action then i wanted to be, but oh well!

I'll upload my videos and pictures tomorrow. This band never ceases to make me love them again and again.

A week ago I had the best gig experience of my entire life, hands down.

So yeah, I went to see Keane (and Ladyhawke and Tom Tom Club) at the Shepherd's Bush Empire as part of Island Records 50th anniversary. I have never experienced a gig so passionate and so loud in my entire life. The band were shaking their heads in disbelief and they couldn’t stop smiling. Even before they could end a song the crowd just ROARED and shouted “KEANO! KEANO! KEANO!”, completely drowning out the music. It was mind-blowing to say the least. London crowds are usually hard to please but this time was just a win from the beginning to the end. Everybody, even those die-hard fans who've been to dozens and dozens of Keane gigs said that this was a really magical night. It was a spiritual (almost religious) experience.

They played "My shadow" for the first time in the UK and it made me cry like a baby, and it was followed by "Under pressure" which almost made the venue explode. Here's my signed setlist:



A couple of my pics from the gig (I was in the second row and it was so worth the 11 hours in the queue )





And as if the gig wasn't enough, I had the funniest, most memorable meet & greet with the band afterwards! The guys were in a hurry as they had a festival gig in The Netherlands on the next day but yet they found time for us (there must have been at least 50-60 people outside). I chatted a long time with Richard, gave a birthday present to Tim and nearly melted in front of him lol

Tim and I


But what happened with Jesse and Tom was absolutely HILARIOUS. I was having my pic taken with Jesse when Tom rushed in, ruffled Jesse’s hair, gave him a kiss on the cheek and said very loudly “Stop touching my bum, Jesse!” It was absolutely hilarious! So practically Tom gatecrashed my picture with Jesse and I still can’t quite believe that! Tom had turned down some fans when they’d asked for a pic with him (in a very nice way though, explaining they were in a hurry) and then he literally volunteered to be in the pic with me and Jesse I hadn’t even though of asking for a pic with him and yet I got several thanks to my friends who kept taking pics of this hilarious moment. Jesse, Tom, me and basically everyone there were laughing so much, and Jesse even managed to whisper to me “But he touched my bum!” These pics say it all:

Tom the Intruder on his way to spoil my moment with Jesse


Stop touching my bum!



I'm still laughing at all that silliness! After this I still had a nice, long chat with Jesse who's my absolute fave of the guys, even though he's not an official member. He's such a sweetheart really. I guess I don't have to say that I haven't stopped smiling since last Saturday and my love for Keane has definitely gone up to 11
