One band's intimate venue is another's career peak, it seems. Keane are to punctuate their summer UK forest tour with a series of club dates at London's Roundhouse, Birmingham's Academy, Barrowlands in Glasgow and the Olympia in Dublin.
Keyboard player Tim Rice-Oxley said in statement, "The forest shows we're playing in June will be big, glorious singalongs, but we wanted to play some more sweaty and intimate gigs along the way.
"We figured out the other day that we haven't played in Birmingham since February 2007. Birmingham was one of the first cities to really embrace Keane -- in fact, we think it was the scene of our first sold-out show -- so it's about time we got back there."
Tickets for the new shows go on sale on Wednesday, April 14 at 9.30AM BST via Keane's Web site. The dates for the band's club gigs are:
London Roundhouse, England (June 15)
Birmingham Academy, England (June 16)
Glasgow Barrowlands, Scotland (June 21)
Dublin Olympia, Ireland (June 23)
