I'm in love with this album. I love Spiraling. I'm late to the Keane party---but now I wish I saw them open for U2 instead of Mr. Gwen Stefani.

Perfect Symmetry is one of the greatest albums ever released. But Keane haven't released a bad album yet.

to Keane

Nice to see some (new) love for Keane here I'm really excited at the moment as I'm going to see them live twice this week, at the O2 arena in London. My first ever Keane gigs and I just know I'm going to love them. I'll return with a review and photos next week as soon as I'm back from the UK!

That's great, hope you have fun. Do you know if They are planning a US leg---or did I miss it?

I'm pretty sure I'm going to have fun! They haven't announced the US tour dates yet, but I've heard they're coming over there in May.

I'm back from the UK, happy and sad and touched and longing to go back. It was amazing -- no, it was the best thing ever, hands down.

I went to see the last two gigs of Keane's UK tour, both at the O2 Arena in London. I was there with a group of amazing fans from all over the world and we were crazy enough to queue about 9 hours both days, but it was worth it as we made it to the front row both Thursday and Friday

Thursday's gig was the first time I ever saw Keane so they didn't need to do a lot to impress me but boy, were they amazing or what!! Poor Tom had a bit of a cold and he was struggling quite a lot with higher notes, but even when his voice isn't the best he's still one hell of a singer, definitely one of the best male vocalists of our time.

Personal highlights were basically all the new songs, Again and Again made our group dance like mad and Perfect Symmetry is such a masterpiece. And Spiralling, wow! I also loved the live version of Black Burning Heart, I've never been too crazy about the version on the album but it was so much better live, starting with a funky bassline. The best however was You Haven't Told Me Anything - the way they built up to it from Bruce Springsteen's The River (!!) was spine-tingling! Leaving so soon was probably my fave of the old songs, I was completely out of breath when it finished as I had been singing and dancing so hard to it!

I was really pleased after Thusday's gig and I could never even in my wildest dreams think that Friday would be from another world. Thursday was great but Friday was simply EPIC - everyone agreed on this and some hardcore fans who've been to dozens of Keane gigs over the years said that Friday's gig was probably the best Keane have ever done. The band were in a great mood, fooling around and rocking out as if their lives depended on it. Tom was all loved up during the gig, patting Tim's back all the time, singing to his face and trying to make him laugh (and succeeding in that ). He also interacted a lot more with the crowd and I had my special moment during Bend and Break as Tom came to sing right in front of us. I had my hands in the air the whole time really, but as I saw him come closer I stretched my right arm as much as I could and pointed at Tom, singing back at him. And he followed my gesture, pointing back at me with his right arm stretched out, staring right into my eyes, then placing his hand on his heart and still keeping eye contact with me. It lasted for about 30 seconds and I thought my heart would stop because I was singing my heart out and Tom was so close and singing right back at me. When he moved on to the other side of the stage my friends went absolutely nuts shouting "OH MY GOD HE WAS SINGING TO YOU" and hugging me and this complete stranger standing behind me patted on my shoulder, giving me the thumbs up! I was shaking so much and had I been on my own I would have thought it was just my imagination but so many people saw it that I have to believe it. One of the Keane forum boardies stood a little to the right of us and took a picture of Tom during this moment which is pretty awesome.

I can honestly say that the Friday gig was the best one I have ever been to. It'll be hard, probably impossible to top that gig.

I took a lot of pictures, they're not that amazing but if you want you can see Thursday's pics here and Friday's here.

A lot of people think Keane are the definition of uncool and boring. I wish these people would go and see this band live at least once to see what an amazing group they are! They just blow your mind. I don't think any other musician is as into the music as Tim Rice-Oxley is during the gigs, he's just unbelievable on stage. The passion this band has is truly incredible. And I must say that Jesse Quin on bass (and all the thousand other instruments he plays on stage - the guy is such a talent!!) adds so much to the live experience. We stood in front of him both nights and he was just rocking his heart out, loving the attention he got and simply being his gorgeous self

Ok, this wall-o-text needs to end now

12 - Salt Lake City, UT - Kingsbury Hall

Tickets will go on sale on Monday via a special km.com presale (in conjunction with one of the big US ticket sites). The presale kicks off at 10am ET / 7am PT on Monday 23rd Feburary. Head back to the website then for all the details...

"It's been such a long time since we toured North America and it's probably my favourite place to go on tour, so I'm very, very excited about it," Tim just told us. "I can't wait."

UPDATE: Sorry, we had to move the time of the presale back slightly - it's now 10am ET / 7am PT (and it won't change again!).

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to get good - no, excellent seats! A seated venue doesn't sound too good to me (I NEED to dance and jump up and down at gigs - and seats make that a bit difficult!) but it's better than no concert at all of course.
