Amsterdam/Paris live blog
14.20: Right, it's time for km to head to the station to catch the train back to London, leaving the band here to play the Olympia show tonight. We'll leave you with a Tom's eye view of the venue. Thanks again for reading, commenting and emailing. See you for another live blog soon. Au revoir!
14.13: Here's the fellas in the dressing room just now (Tom's gone out for a wander)
13.38: Some more photos of tonight's Paris venue...
12.45: Just been for that wander to a coffee shop with Beth. On the way, we passed the front of the venue (fans have already started arriving).
11.45: Beth's still busy, so we just popped outside and did a quick lap of the Olympia to take some photos and give you a little French flavour. And here they are...
Folks do seem to enjoy a smoke in Paris.
11.32: For those asking, Tom was the first of the band to get up this morning. And then Richard. We've not seen Tim and Jesse yet. Although, of course, they may have snuck out to do some sightseeing when we weren't looking.
11.31: Beth has been briefly diverted by something else, so our coffee trip is delayed. In the meantime, here's a photo of a lot of Keane boxes which no doubt have a lot of complicated Keane stuff in them.
11.25: As ever, feel free to drop us a line to email@example.com (as Corina did - to explain that she was behind last night's sock giving! Apparently she also threw socks onto the stage at the band's Amsterdam show in 2005, having read Tom saying he needed new socks in an interview.)
11.22: Here's a pic of the crew, busily setting up the stage for tonight (all of which has arrived overnight from Amsterdam). "Two very full trucks," says Colin. And with that, we're going to pop outside the venue to take a few photos of Paris (and accompany Beth to grab a coffee).
11.18: When the Killers sang about "glamourous indie rock n roll", they may have been talking about sights like this. On the other hand, they may not.
11.16: For the record, today is Keane's 11th show in Paris - as you can see in our Live Archive, here. The band played at the Olympia back in March 2005, when, Colin tells us, they were supported by Rufus Wainwright. Apparently Colin remembers this because he recalls seeing Rufus's manager doing "samurai sword dancing" in the carpark. Which is. indeed, quite memorable. Support tonight comes from AGOP.
11.10: Today's show is another sellout, at the 3,000-capacity Olympia. It's quite ornate.
11.08: The view from the tourbus this morning. Ah, Parisian glamour.
17 October, 11.00: Good morning! Or, indeed, bonjour! We've made it to Paris and we've taken a few pictures (km is not off to tonight's Paris show, but we'll share pictures with you until we head off back to London). Here's a couple from the tourbus last night, including one of Tom pointing at a true British hero...
16 October, 23.39: And with that, we'll bid you goodnight - but we're joining the band on the bus overnight to Paris, so there should be a few more photos to post tomorrow (although not from the Paris show). Huge thanks to everyone who's read the blog, and the many hundreds of you who've emailed in and commented. You lot really are incredible and Keane are very lucky to have you.
And so to our bunk...
23.30: And, as well as opening his new socks, Richard has already sorted out his hi-res crowd shot for tonight's show. Here it is. Click on the picture for the full-size version.
23.23: Richard has opened the socks he swapped his drumsticks for. Niiice.
23.00: As promised, here's tonight's setlist...
22.53: And, after a rousing second encore of Under Pressure, it was goodbye from Keane. Great night, great show.
22.51: Remember the sign from earlier asking Richard to swap his drumsticks for socks? Well, he gave them his drumsticks and, sure enough, they gave him four pairs of gift-wrapped socks. Superb.
22.48: It's fair to say that the crowd enjoyed themselves tonight.
22.47: Tim 'n Tom
22.45: The view from the back of stage left...
22.44: The show is done. The band are very happy with how it went. And there are more photos on their way.
22.28: After the main set, before the encore...
22.26: More live shots, mainly from Bedshaped...
Turning the mic on the crowd for them to bellow along...
22.22: Back again, with a memory card bursting with pictures for you...
22.14: But I don't *have* any signs. :-(
Oh, and thanks to Annika for letting us know about the England match being called off because of rain in Warsaw.
22.13: It's a great venue, by the way. Very much recommend you coming to a show here if you have the chance.
22.10: The view from the balcony.
22.08: More pictures coming in two shakes of a tick...
21.58: Thanks for all the emails / comments you're sending / posting, by the way, We're a bit busy rushing between stage and laptop to read very many now - but, for those asking, we will post the full setlist after the show.
21.54: Here's some more photos from the show, which is going down an absolute storm with the people of Amsterdam.
It's a tempting offer...
21.45: We're back. More photos coming...
21.28: We'll pop off and take some more...
21.24: Some photos from the first couple of songs...
21.17: Here they are, going on stage...
21.12: From the dressing room to the stage (being filmed by a Dutch TV crew)
21.10: The band are on. They just played You Are Young and then Bend & Break and the crowd are going bonkers. Photos coming....
20.55: Right, they're on in five minutes. We'd best go and take some photos of them taking the stage and wotnot. We'll be back before too long with those pics and some live shots...
20.48: Stage time in 12 minutes. Last minute preparations are go...
20.34: Saskia - who we wished a happy 21st birthday to earlier - is in the building! (She's in the middle with the red hair.) Liking the hats!
20.30: Annika is reading the live blog while she watches the German national football team play. Impressive multi-tasking. Let us know if you hear the England score...
20.25: Juli has emailed firstname.lastname@example.org to ask if Beth picks the band's stage outfits. We asked Beth. She laughed. No, definitely not.
20.21: Here are the pictures of Zulu Winter...
(Love that woolly hat)
20.16: And we're back. Zulu Winter photos coming...
20.04: Tonight's support act, Zulu Winter, have just come on. Off to take a few snaps...
20.02: The band are currently chilling in the dressing room. They all seem in very good spirits today. Which is nice.
20.00: ONE HOUR UNTIL KEANE SHOW TIME
19.53: The view from Richard's drum riser just now. It's looking pretty full already...
19.43: Tim's in the dressing room at the moment, having a bit of a sit down. (77 minutes until stage time)
19.40: Seems a lot of you are reading the live blog while studying - like Jo Ann in Philadelphia who's studying music theory and Mireille from Lebanon who's working on her architecture project.
19.38: Matilda - the youngest member of Keane Chile - seems to be enjoying the blog...
19.36: Su from Sao Paulo's biscuits are ready! (One of more than 70 emails to arrive to email@example.com while we had dinner.)
19.27: Jesse, messing about with the big photos of past gigs they have on the wall in the catering room...
19.21: Here's tonight's menu from catering. (We had the curry. It was nice.)
19.18: Beth is back at her desk. Here's a question that Elena emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi Beth! I know your job is extremely hard, but what was/is the most difficult thing in your job?? Hope you're well!!
All the best,
Beth says: It's when we're just releasing a record, because there is just so much going on. All over the world, with so many different departments.
19.15: And we're back...
18.35: Right, doors are open and the band will head through the door below in 2 hours and 24 minutes. Off to grab something to eat. Back soon...
18.20: Doors open in ten minutes. Here's the merch stand which will greet folks when they do.
18.19: Here's a very red corridor which we got lost in earlier on...
18.15: Hi km.com! So who's doing all the blogging? 1 person, or 2? And who are you?? Just curious about your team in HMH! Greetings from Amsterdam (getting ready for the show tonight!!)
There's just one of us (so please excuse any gaps in service). And *we* are km.com.
18.14: And Tracy is reading the blog from Hong Kong with her panda, who seems to be a bit upset by it (must be more of a dubstep fan).
18.10: Rather closer to home, Lizanne and Stony are reading the blog outside this very venue while waiting for the doors to open. (They open in 18 minutes.)
18.08: Meanwhile, Rebecca in Sao Paulo is reading the blog while studying criminal law. Concentrate, Rebecca. Photos of shoes will NOT help you get the bad guys.
18.05: "As I am reading your Blog my boys, Daniel and Matthew, are dancing in the kitchen!" writes Susan. And here's the proof...
Nice moves fellas.
18.02: Btw, thanks for all the comments below this blog (as well as your emails). We're reading all those too. Glad you're enjoying it...
18.00: Here's Richard in the dressing room earlier, working on his hi-res crowd shots for the shows in Offenbach and Beirut (which we'll post once we're back on an internet connection that won't take an hour or so to upload them...!)
17.55: Gabi is currently reading the blog in a hotel room in Indianapolis while waiting to go and see a keynote speech from Michael J Fox! Now *that* is impressive.
17.52: Here are Lali's from Argentina's cats - which are called Hopes and Fears. Wonder if the contrasting nature of their names is reflected in their behaviour. One very optimistic. One a bit scary.
17.48: 'Can you please take a picture of everyones' shoes?' asks Emelie from Sweden. Well, we did take this in the dressing room earlier. No idea whose they are, though...
17.46: Thanks to all of you from Beirut and Offenbach who've emailed to say how much you enjoyed the shows in the last few days. Very glad to hear it. And HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY to Saskia, whose sister tells us she'll be celebrating her birthday at tonight's show here in Amsterdam.
17.45: A couple of you - including Aline - have emailed email@example.com to ask what camera we're using. It's a Nikon D7000.
17.42: Donna from Mexico has emailed in this great photo of the fans greeting Keane in Mexico in August...
Have we mentioned that Keane have amazing fans? Keane have amazing fans.
17.41: Sandra - who's a Pharmacy Computer Systems Manager at a hospital in the UK - has emailed to ask if we'd like to swap jobs. Not sure her hospital's patients would thank her for having us in charge of their medicines...
17.39: For those of you asking which songs the band were soundchecking earlier, while we were down there it was Neon River and then Spiralling (where they were talking about doing some kind of complicated key change thing which we didn't understand).
17.34: Su from Sao Paulo is reading the live blog while baking heart-shaped biscuits (or, for our American readers, cookies). Feel free to email us a pic of what you're doing while you read, to firstname.lastname@example.org - and that includes you, Su, when they've finished baking.
17.25: BREAKING NEWS FROM THE KEANE SHOP: You can now order the bespoke, hand pulled, silk screen prints for each night of the European tour. Click here to order (then select the show from the dropdown menu). The A2 screen prints are printed on 250 gsm archival paper and are hand numbered out of 10. There is one print design made to commemorate each show on the current Strangeland world tour. Here's the poster for tonight...
17.15: And finally, a couple of shots which show tonight's venue (which, you'll remember if you've been reading since the start, is 5,500 capacity and long ago sold out).
17.13: Hey mister bass man.
17.10: And here's Rich, Instagramming up a storm...
17.07: And another one of Tom...
17.03: Tim, taken from up on the stage...
17.01: Jesse's chatting to soundman Matthew about something in this one...
16.58: And here's Jesse (as you might also gather, the full stage lighting often isn't on for soundcheck)
16.55: Tim looking deep in thought (the soundcheck is obviously where the band check their levels and run through any potential changes to the songs, etc)
16.53: Tom, singing Neon River during soundcheck...
16.51: The view from the back...
16.50: Here's the queue outside the venue, which we passed on the way to the stage. (To be honest, we got quite lost.)
16.46: Sorry for the gap in blog service - turned out that when we got into the venue, the soundcheck had begun. Photos incoming....
16.18: Off to take a couple of photos of the venue itself. We'll leave you with a photo of Tom making us a cup of tea earlier (and very nice it was too).
16.17: M from Spain has emailed email@example.com to ask how long it takes Richard to unfold his bike. We saw him do it and it was about, ooh, 30 seconds.
16.15: "Happy Keane-Day" to Laura Araujo who, we're told, is eating this cake in Peru, right now. (Wonder if it'll be like that bit in Back To The Future and the band will actually start to disappear as they're eaten. We'll let you know...)
16.13: Oh, and now Colin's back.
Colin, you have an orange watch, where did you get it?
Colin says: It's red, actually. And it's a very cheap Casio! I bought it online.
16.10: Colin's wandered off somewhere, but Beth the band's lovely PA is still here. Any more questions for her? Email 'em to firstname.lastname@example.org....
16.09: Beth, Who's your favourite Keane member?
Lots of love!
Lali from Buenos Aires
Beth says: Haha! It depends what day of the week it is...
16.06: Here's Zoe from Uppingham, who wins the Send A Photo Of Yourself On A Bike Like Richard Challenge...
Nice T-shirt too, Zoe.
16.05: Another question for Colin...
Colin, Where's your favorite venue??
Colin says: Well, I have to say, I'm particularly passionate about the Greek theatre in LA, because I'm from LA.
Beth [Keane's PA] says: You're not from LA Colin. You were born in Scotland.
Colin says: Where you're from is not just about your accent, Beth. And there's church in Istanbul that's an amazing venue too.
Beth: I like the Fox Theatre in Oakland.
15.59: This just in from Wajeeha in Pakistan. Good effort!
15.54: Right, here are some of Colin's answers to your questions...
Q. Do you get to watch Keane playing during concerts? Can you just sit and enjoy it or do you have work to do during show time?
From Aline Shinzato
Sao Paulo - Brazil
Colin says: I fluctuate betwixt side of stage and back stage. I do get to enjoy it from time to time.
Q. Did you get the little clogs with your name on them which I left you in Taiwan?
Thanks a lot.
Chi from Taoyuan City, Taiwan.
Colin says: I did and I love them. Thanks!
Q. Hi colin! Who's the keane member you argue with the most?
Colin says: We don't argue. They just do as they're told.
15.50: And hello to Spain, Canada and Peru. (Keane fans really are *everywhere*.)
15.48: To inspire your Colin Questions, here's a photo of him, hard at work. (The teddy is not his.)
15.45: If you have a question for Keane's Tour Manager To The Stars, Colin, then please email it to email@example.com and we'll do our best to ask him...
15.44: For those of you asking where Jesse is, he's gone to buy some shoes....
15.38: OK, that seems like a good photo theme for you guys, Can you recreate Richard's bike pose below, on your bike? Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org (hello to those of you in Switzerland, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Pakistan, Germany, Mexico, Norway, the US, Finland and lots of other places who've already emailed to say hello). Oh, and these guys from Indonesia...
15.34: Earlier today, Richard went for a ride around Amsterdam on his incerdibly nifty folding bike (which he keeps in a case on the tourbus). He biked to this cafe and had "a very tasty flat white". Here he is, wrapped up warm agains the chilly weather.
And here's how small the bike folds..
15.04: Here's Tim and Tom in the dressing room just now. They were actually looking at old videos of performances of Clear Skies on YouTube. The band are all in good spirits, and enjoyed last night's show in Offenbach, Germany (where they travelled overnight from - about a six hour drive, says Colin TMTTS, who's sitting opposite us).
14.59: Hello to Chi from Taoyuan City, TAIWAN, who was the first person to email email@example.com after the blog started and say hello. Hello Chi! And also hello to Tali from Buenos Aires, Joliem from Apeldoom, Meire James from Sao Paulo, Laurel from Mongolia, Ces Boco from the Phillipines and Natalia from St Petersburg. You guys are the km.com hardcore who got to the blog before we did a tweet or anything...
14.56: Here's an interview with the band in a Dutch magazine in the venue's reception...
14.48: And here's a slightly arty way of showing you that the weather today is a little bit mixed.
Saying that, as we uploaded that photo, the sun came out. Hurrah!
14.45: The venue is right across from the Amsterdam ArenaA, home to one of European football's greatest teams, Ajax.
14.33: Let's begin with a photo of tonight's venue, the Heineken Music Hall, capacity 5,500, which has completely sold out for tonight. (You'll notice that there are already some fans outside.)
And here's an extremely tasty waffle which we bought from a stall just outside the venue. They might be more famous for their waffles over the border in Belgium, but this was *good*.
14:30: Hello from Amsterdam! We've arrived at the Heineken Music Hall, we've scooted around to take some photos and we're ready to blog. As always, we'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org - let us know where you're reading from.
Thank you so much for the gig in Paris, it was so great!!!!I'm a fench fan and I will always remember this 17th october, it was my 34th birthday, and I was so happy to see Keane on stage, I cried when I heard Bedshaped!!and all the setlist was perfect!!!!!You are so brillliant!!!!French fans have chance to have Keane!!!!

The playlist of the songs played at the concert in Amsterdam on spotify: http://open.spotify.com/user/1126355493/playlist/4rJlA76CZxGUCPMMy6a6p 1
♥♥ Que lindas fotos todas estan hermosas.. tommy cantas como los angeles tienes una voz increiblemente bella... los amo keane son la mejor banda del mundo... mexico los quiere chicos.. vuelvan pronto ♥♥♥
Guess the shoes- the green trainers are Jesses', the beaten up brown ones are Tom's, the black and white ones are Tim's which leave the other trainers for Richard. Was I right?
It was such a wonderfull experience in Amsterdam! I'm still a bit shaking from it! It was the best evening of my life! :D Thank you Keane! You are great!
Wow, terrific pictures. Tom, you're amazing as always. Tim, Richard, Jesse..have a good time and good luck!
es increíble las millones de personas que los quieren!! En cada rincón del Mundo. Es fascinante!! Les saludo, recién acabo de ver las fotos del Blog, están de maravilla! Aún les queda harto por conocer y viajar comunicando con sus hermosas canciones! Para mí ustedes siempre formarán parte de mi repertorio de música, aún si es que en las radios se escuchen canciones de artistas más famosos. Los quiero chicos! Cuídense mucho, estaré esperándolos para el Lollapalooza 2013 en Santiago of Chile. Best Whishes!! From Valdivia of Chile!
Thanks for the blogs and photo's! looks great. And of course you guys were amazing In Amsterdam! what an energy! loved it from the beginning to the end. Lovely you guys came back twice as no much people were expecting that. See you guys in Edinburgh.
COME FROM COLOMBIA PLEASE!
GUYS I LOVE YOU GUYS!!...KEANE
The reason Tom would enjoy Lovejoy was that it was set in Suffolk, in and around Ipswich and surrounding area . It was actually a bit rubbish really but that was part of its charm! What is it with everybody and socks?!
@AnnetteM: Hi! A drizzly good evening from chocolateland, Belgium! Well, i'm trying to subtly inject some contemporary decors in our home and at the same time trying not to defeat the design of "antique-y". LOL You're lucky cuz your partner has grown to like KEANE's music albeit here at my abode, Perfect Symmetry, Bend & Break & The Starting LIne have become our National anthem each morning! And my daughter has been hummin' Bedshaped for more than a fortnight now. Yeah, watching KEANE live is indeed in my Bucket List and that's the reason why i have registered myself on this website so as to be in the loop for their next gig here in Belgium as I was a tad too late to purchase tickets for their November gig here in Brussels this year! Yup, a bummer indeed but it's alright cuz I was so busy planning our Cote D'Azur & French Alps holiday last summer. Seems we cannot have everything, can we? So, I reckon you are from London, Annette?
amazing photos!! Thank you guys!! :D
@Athallie - Have lots of fun tonight, girl! And throw Tom a kiss from me, hehe!
Dommage que vous ne restiez pas Mr KM ! I'm terribly late but I go. A tout de suite l'Olympia :)
And now on to conquer Paris...yet again!.....You knock 'em dead every time, guys.....Looking forward to your Michigan stop in January....parkas and snowmobiles might be the order of the day!....Safe travels, great music, good times!....Sherry W., Michigan, USA. @sambawoman.
TAKE ME TO PARIS KEANE! GOOD MORNING FROM ECUADOR I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS TRIP IN PARIS. ENVY YOU!!! JAJAJA
anouk23 where are you from? I am sorry for you although my boyfriend loves antiques on television( that actor that Tom is looking at is on comedy/drama show about an antiques dealer) he is an architect and is totally minimalistic at home! Drag your husband into the 21st century now! your are right about having a roof over are heads though! Did you get to see Keane this year? I saw them in Brixton London they were brilliant - next time they tour I am going to save up and see the whole tour! Am fortunate that my partner absolutely loves strangeland as I have played it to death! Amazing to see all these pictures from over the world!
Grazie Km per questi aggiornamenti in tempo reale da Parigi, li ho graditi tantissimo, questi scorci della città sono suggestivi e romantici! Mi piace molto anche notare da queste nuove foto che la band sta bene , si respira un'atmosfera serena e rilassata , si vede dai loro volti che il concerto di ieri sera è andato alla grande e sono sicura che anche questo di oggi sarà un successone! Un abbraccio ai Keane , alla cara Beth e a tutto lo staff di Km, al prossimo live blog! Sabrina da Catania!
@AnnetteM: Crazy, indeed, cuz my hubby prefers antiques! eew! i so abhor it but he bought our house when he was still single and before we met hence, I have no choice but to adapt to his "design" and old oak furniture. I'm not complaining...at least we've got a roof over our head, haven't we? But just between you and me, i really prefer the modern minimalistic/Asian interior design/motif.
Oh God my boyfriend loves Lovejoy does Tom still like cash in the attic becos my boyfriend wld probablly like that show too - what is with men and antiques??
Thank you so much =) It would have been amazing to have photos from the Paris concert, but we are still happy =) HUGE HUGS FROM CHILE =)
But I don't want it to end. :(
Aw, what a pity the live blog is over. :( I was already getting used to this, haha. Well, thank you very much, mr. KM, and have a nice trip back to London! I'll be waiting for Tom, Tim, Rich & Jesse in Lisbon and Porto... can't wait! x
ISA, from Brasil, Sao Paulo **** Since I do love arts, I do love Paris, one of most gorgeous city in the world, indeed! (But I also like Londond and Edinburgh, in UK!). Guys, you are lucky people to be there! Have a great performance tonight! Did I understand well? Are you going to play in the famous theater called Olympia? Wow! Lots of love! XXXXXXX
funny, I dreamt last night of Marilyn Monroe. Well, actually it wasn´t a funny dream as she was in prison as she had problems with her daughter. Did she ever had a daughter? Well, that´s nice more pics today. Thanks!
Hi, Keane, Colin, KM, Beth and the crew! A drizzly good afternoon to you all! Tom, shouldn't you be sleeping some more? Rest those vocal chords, luv!
Bellissimi questi scatti Parigini, grazie di cuore Keanemusic!!!
Good morning, Keane, Beth, Colin, all the staff and, as well, Mr. KM! :) Following you again from Portugal. Olympia seems to be a really cool venue. Hope you all enjoy yourselves tonight! x
Ciao Keanemusic, sono contenta che anche oggi ci farete compagnia con il liveblog da Parigi, che bello ! Auguro un buongiorno a tutti voi dello staff e naturalmente a Tom, Tim, Jesse e Richard! Attendo le foto di Parigi!!! By Sabrina from Catania, Sicily!!!
haha...it´s funny...i study french art at now....Tom, please bring me a some Toulouse-Lautrec masterpiece :-D ...i can´t wait to prague´s concert.... T.T
WOOHOO! We get a few more pictures!
yo hooooooooooooooooo :DD
Re Tom & Tim looking at youtube Clear Skies live - I always wished it would end with a bongo playing frenzy by Jesse! Looking forward to seeing the band on 30 Nov...
Such an amazing night and one of the best setlists ever. I was so happy with all the old songs (don't get me wrong I love the new album too, but you guys have so many songs to chose from, I was happy to hear some songs you haven't been playing for a long time) I think the accoustic Try Again with just Tim and Tom was absolutely beautiful. And I loved to hear Strangers and A bad dream! And the encore Under Pressure. My favourite. Good luck in Paris. xxx
Thanks so much for the fantastic blog! I really enjoyed it, you did an awesome job Mr. KM! I love getting an up close and personal glimpse of behind the scenes...it makes me feel a lttle bit closer to you all! It's so kind and gererous of the guys to let us in! And by the way, WE are the lucky ones....so lucky to have Keane :) Lots of love from Wisconsin, USA!
RENDEZ VOUS TOUT A L 'HEURE A L 'OLYMPIA

I just got home from Amsterdam, and I want to thank you guys so much for the perfect show tonight! It was definitely an experience I will never forget in my entire life!
Brilliant as usual!!! Can't wait for San Francisco in January!! ♥
Wrong, WE are lucky to have Keane! :) Thank you so much for the great live blog & the amazing photos. It makes us feel so much closer to the guys and it's incredible. By the way, the inside of the tour bus looks pretty cool! I'll be looking forward to tomorrow's photos. Goodnight everyone! Love you all! x

Hi-ya, thanks Mr.KM.com. You did a brilliant work! (Couldn´t catch it all up,really, live all as a small amount of people like me has to go to work, but enjoyed it afterwards. How was the EasyJet flight?)
Great the story of the socks ! This Richard is a "grand Monsieur" ;) I am happy to tell you "see you tomorrow Keane & Co" ! Hope there will be no rain, but it's mal barré :(
La foto de Tim's in the dressing room until stage time está como una locomotora. El jersey negro y ya sé que lo he dicho antes, pero esta barba me pone .... No puedo decir más porqué está casado y yo también. Así que mejor dejarlo. Marisa. Barcelona.
Mr. Hughes'...thats one of the many reasons Keane fans love you!!!!!

Ya sabéis que ojalá hubierais ido al Palacio de la música. Keane es diseño y elegancia. Difíciles de encontrar en este mundo de música. Es un placer para los oídos. Barcelona. Marisa. Petons.

@Zoe, I Love your T-shirt! :)
Hey Guys! I am in Hatfield, Pennsylvania USA. I saw your show at the Merriam Theater back in June- I have been a HUGE Keane fan for years!!! It was a dream come true to see you live. My question is---- I love your original music- you are the soundtrack of my life- Tim is a genius and with the other members of the band you all continue to write music and lyrics uniquely your own- MAGIC. What are some of your favorite covers to do? I love watching them on youtube- She Sells Sanctuary, Dirtylicious, and With or Without you are some of my favorites. What are yours??? Thanks for your time. PS- I am so glad you are coming back to the US on tour- BUT you are skipping over Philadelphia this time---- if you needto stop at my house for dinner just let me know- my boys (age 8 and 5) would freak! I would too...
awwww! Wajeeha, that's a very cool photo!
Hey, guys!! In Keane Chile we are very happy with this new live blog!! And we're extremely happy because you're coming next year to LOLLAPALOOZA CHILE 2013!! We're already waiting for you =D HUGE HUGS FROM CHILE =)

Grazie Km per aver menzionato l'Italia, sono stata io a salutarvi , che bello, sono contenta!!! Sabrina from Sicily!!!
Hello from Portugal! :) The waffle looks irresistible. And that bike is awesome also! Clear Skies would be a lovely addition to the setlist... they should definitely consider including it in Lisbon/Porto gigs this weekend! :D
If they are watching old performances of Clear Skies, might they be considering adding it back to the setlist sometime soon? :D
I'm at work, ...I have no bike xD
Hi everybody!!! I'm from Madrid, Spain here seeing and following another lovely live blog of Keane. Good luck Keane tonight in Amsterdam.
Looking forward to tonight! I really hope you'll play Something In Me Was Dying and Sea Fog, but I'll love you anyways!
Molto carina la piccola bici di Richard, è comodissima, la può piegare e portarsela dove vuole! Sono contenta che abbia avuto il tempo di fare un giro nella città! E' sempre bello per loro poter visitare i luoghi dove si esibiscono!!!
