The Hot Press Newsdesk, 03 Aug 2012
Keane return to Ireland in November – with by their standards – intimate shows in the Dublin Olympia (21) and the Belfast Waterfront (22). The respective tickets are €33.50 and €33.
The gigs follow on from the May release of Strangeland, their fifth consecutive UK number one album, which also hit the top spot on this side of the Irish Sea.

Their debut album Hopes And Fears launched a host of hit singles, going on to become one of the most successful British records of the past five years. But, their indie background notwithstanding, Keane have still been dismissed by some self-styled aficionados as just too nice to be considered real rock'n'rollers.

Despite the driving rhythm and upbeat melody of lead single, ‘Is It Any Wonder?’, Keane’s second album is, for the most part, comprised of the same winsome pop that helped their debut shift over five million copies worldwide.
2006-06-14 - REVIEW
One of the first and finest guitar-free indie bands realise that making a second album with the same gimmick would be equivalent to continuing to argue a point when the conversation’s moved on and they’d already won. So their comeback single starts off with a teasing riff of U2 proportions before it’s engulfed by the Keane we know and love. The passion, gusto and singable chorus puts them in the running for band of the summer, and it’s only May.
