Armed with a keyboard, a microphone and a drum kit which is set at the side of the stage, it seems somewhat empty as Keane walk out on to the stage. Having originally released ‘Everybody’s Changing’ in May 2003 without it even charting it made the upper reaches of the charts this year, and the band are certainly ready to attract a mainstream and alternative audience.

Keane walk out to a crowd that seems to spill out as far as the eyes can see and possibly for a number of reasons. Their chart success, their different style from the rest of everyone else at T or perhaps just curiosity has filled the field.

Keane

Every song is greeted with cheers, swaying and girls on shoulders. As ‘Everybody’s Changing’ starts the crowd sing out their souls as if the words were their own.

Tom Chaplin’s vocals are perfectly formed and ring out filling the field as Tim hammers his keys like there is no tomorrow (not to mention his head moving so fast it looks as if it is going to fall off).

Keane as passionate, talented and rare to find in today’s age. It is not often that Wu Tang Clan would grace the same stage as such a band and that is what makes the experience all the more unique.
