In The Loop


Keane will mark the 20th anniversary of their blockbuster debut album ‘Hopes and Fears’ by releasing a remastered version of the record and embarking on a six-date UK arena tour.

Released on 10th May 2004, ‘Hopes and Fears’ spawned the huge singles ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, ‘Everybody’s Changing’, ‘Bedshaped’ and ‘This is the Last Time’, and it sold over 10 million units globally including almost 3 million copies in Keane’s native UK.

Exactly two decades on, the album will get a remastered reissue on Friday 10th May 2024, and Keane will support its release with a headline UK arena tour.

The trek opens at Leeds First Direct Arena on Friday 3rd May and visits Birmingham, Manchester, Bournemouth and Cardiff before concluding at London’s The O2 on album release day.

Support at all dates comes from The Sherlocks and The Lathums.

Tickets to Keane’s ‘Hopes and ‘Fears’ UK arena tour are on sale now from Absolute Radio Tickets.

The tour will celebrate Keane’s body of work from ‘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!”

Founding band member and songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley adds: “When I think about these songs, I still picture us playing them in little rooms in pubs around the UK. I remember how exciting it was watching the crowds start to grow. Those songs opened the door to another dimension for us; everything that has happened in our lives since then was born out of that moment. It’s an incredible privilege for us that people are still listening after all this time.”
