Keane release a special remastered version of Hopes And Fears, undoubtedly one of the best debut albums ever, on May 10th 2024 exactly 20 years after its initial release.

On the same day, the band play London’s 02 Arena as part of a world tour that started in Mexico City before reaching Europe and the UK.

Hopes And Fears was a landmark album for Keane and has set all kinds of records in the process. It’s one of the best selling albums in UK chart history having sold over 2.5 million in the UK in its first year, and a million in the USA propelled by their absolutely classic song Somewhere Only We Know. Hopes And Fears is a nine times platinum in the UK, a remarkable achievement. The album has sold over ten million copies worldwide.

Keane emerged alongside a new vanguard of bands that would change the shape of music: Snow Patrol, Scissor sisters, the Killers and Coldplay. They were the first to create a sound solely revolving around keyboards which enhanced the emotional pull of their songs. Everybody’s Changing from Hopes And Fears became a fan favourite and a top five hit.

In 2004 Keane were the biggest selling British artist in the UK. The following year they won two Brit Awards; Best British Album for Hopes And Fears and British Breakthrough act award as voted for by Radio 1 listeners.

This year’s tour will celebrate Keane’s acclaimed body of work from their imperious debut Hopes And Fears through to their 2019 studio album Cause And Effect

Lead singer Tom Chaplin says; “I remember standing by that amazing old mixing desk at Heliocentric Studios where we made Hopes And Fears, listening to an early mix of Somewhere Only We Know. I had this feeling that we’d come up with something that had an extra bit of magic. Making music is so often a process full of doubt…but on this occasion there was something undeniable about what we’d created. Clearly a lot of people felt the same when the album came out!”

Keane will be supported by The Sherlocks and The Lathams.
