Dressing room / Houston / 1515

got a few more pics from Las Vegas, where we celebrated Fran Healy's birthday. the House of Blues show was fantastic, though one guy was enjoying it so much he wanted to be in the band, and decided to make that happen by somehow climbing up onto the stage... strange how things like that seem to happen in Vegas!

The dressing room was full of strange artwork, like this:


House of Blues / Las Vegas / 1057

we've had a great first few days of the tour. i'm gonna post the photos from the stage in Oakland and LA (and they'll soon become clickable, hopefully), and various other bits from the last few days. I woke up at 5AM, just as we parked up in Las Vegas, so i went out for a wander with my camera - it was already ridiculously hot (i guess we are in a desert), but the light was amazing as the sun came up. forecast is 42 degrees C / 107 F today.

more from Oakland:

friends reunited

Colin gave me a mug. Thanks Col.

This next one is now clickable to see it bigger...

my view, soundcheck, The Greek

spot Tim, waving!

The two Matts, sheltering from the early afternoon sun

Fran Healy being amazing

Ingrid and her band, also being amazing!

it looks even better when it's full of people (this one is clickable too)

Dear Santa...

at Jimmy Kimmel Live... they've had a few guests on:

This is Parker. he was filming me, and is probably the coolest guy on the stage - he used to do roadtrips round Europe on a BSA motorbike, and was basically the nicest fella you could possibly meet. We had fun.

Vegas! 5.30AM



The Greek Theatre, LA / Wednesday / 1845

if you look really closely you can see a blur on the hillside that says "HOLLYWOOD". is this the worst photo to ever appear on the internet? possibly.

interview for Young Hollywood with Michell Marie

interview 2, for Babelgum



Oakland / Tuesday / 1745

Some pics from last night, and some from today when Jesse and I went for a wander, met some lovely keane fans, and totally failed to find a camera shop (two that we were looking for were no longer there - a sign of the tough economic times, maybe). Still, it's got some lovely old buildings, and some great street art - including a huge mural that i struggled to fit into a single shot. it was really fun playing a few songs in soundcheck, on a drum kit i haven't used since the UTIS tour, strangely - it's just been sitting in cases waiting for the call. i'm really up for tonight's show - it's over a year since we were here last, and if the crowd is half as good as last time then we're gonna have some fun...


Jesse snapped this shot of Colin at dinner last night - what a handsome man he is.


this is awesome! i love it when you guys make keane stuff.

questionable choice of words...

we popped into a music shop opposite the theatre, where the owner had tons of birds flying around. yep, just flying around!

there are lots (and i mean lots) of posters remembering Oscar Grant, an unarmed man shot in Oakland on new year's day 2009. if you have five minutes then google his name to find out more - it's a shocking case. here's a mural in his memory.

this mural is amazing - my photo doesn't begin to do it justice.

this is an amazing building - look how thin the base is. nutso!



San Francisco / Tuesday / 1056

a few more photos from yesterday

San Francisco / Monday / 2000

got to be quick as i'm heading out to find some dinner...

surely this is cheating? "custom made fortune cookie"

is this as depressing as it sounds?


San Francisco / Monday / 0610

the jetlag has kicked in, i've been up since 4am. just found some cookies in my hotel room, and i've sent the "who's up for breakfast?" email. it's always the way when you travel 8 hours west - i just cannot stay asleep beyond about 4 on the first morning. it's still dark outside, and it was quite chilly last night, so i'm happy to stay inside and post a few pics from last night. nothing amazing, i'm afraid, and probably a few repeats from the last time i was here! i simply love the neon signs and shopfronts you get in america. they aren't unique to america, of course, but there's something about them that you don't quite get elsewhere... or maybe it's just the context. anyway, expect to see a few on the blog over the coming weeks. Beth and I flew in yesterday, the rest of the crew having come straight from Lisbon. we met Colin for some dinner at Lori's Diner. I ordered the onion rings - just look at them... they were stunning. Milkshake was pretty special, too.

let's kick things off with a really bad caption: <drum roll> "My Shadow" <cymbal>

yes, that sign does ask "is your dog bulimic?"

those onion rings...

I'm almost certain i've blogged this sign before, but i love it.

I would love to have a link to a non-scaled down version of the Las Vegas crowd if at all possible. Thanks for the great show guys.

Posted by mrobsession at 5:32am, 27 Jul 2010

OMG!!! Tom wearing a short sleeve shirt!!! Lovely as usual...

Posted by claramiraglia at 5:19am, 27 Jul 2010

That doesn't surprise me at the LV HOB, the security there sucks. It was insane at the Arctic Monkeys show there a few months ago, drinks being thrown (and they're not cheap) and loads of moshing (scary for all us girls in the crowd). The show at the Greek in L.A. was stellar, 2nd row pit right in front of Tim :)

Posted by lesannette at 1:04am, 27 Jul 2010

Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures Richard! Travelling by bus from Oakland to Las Vegas must have been very fascinating. It is the trip I have always dreamed of. I regret not having done that yet! You guys are a myth! Besos from Honduras

Posted by Mihajasoa at 1:19pm, 26 Jul 2010

Sono veramente tanto felice dolcissimo Rich, ma quante foto deliziose! Che bel primo piano ti hanno scattato, finalmente ti posso vedere da vicino e bene bene, che occhi hai... sei un uomo molto affascinante Rich, trovo bellissimi anche Tom e Tim, complimenti ragazzi più passa il tempo e più migliorate!!! Ho apprezzato moltissimo anche le foto di Las Vegas, specialmente quella in cui si vede la sfinge con lo sfondo della piramide, suggestiva davvero! Rich, non sei solo un eccellente batterista ma anche un bravo fotografo, insomma tu fai due mestieri !Oggi , dopo aver aiutato mia mamma, ho trascorso tutta la mattinata a guardare le tue foto, ce ne sono davvero un' infinità , grazie, è stato un passatempo piacevolissimo !!!Sabrina da Catania, SICILY!

KEANE: You guys are not "imbéciles" that's why we do not have H&F 1, H&F2, H&F 3, and H&F4( In fact we have a lovely Hopes and Fears 2 with 2 CD).

Posted by Mihajasoa at 11:00pm, 25 Jul 2010

He was not phony, he had just grown up I guess. After all "il n'y a que les imbéciles qui ne changent pas".

The same French singer had long hair in the seventies........................

Posted by Mihajasoa at 10:48pm, 25 Jul 2010

Thanks Dick! Hope you had a nice travel from Las Vegas to Houston. Good luck for the concert! I'm sure it will be fine, with or without intruder. Good luck too with the song you're working on -very exciting news. Hope Russ have managed to silence the gremlins. Given that hair has become a favourite topic over the past few days, here's an anecdote: A French singer who still had success after middle life crisis ( fifty something, or so I heard) said about The Beatles: "cheveux long, idées courtes" , meaning "long haired, smalll minded", oh, oh, oh.

HELOISA, ISA FROM BRASIL, SAO PAULO *******Thank you for the new pictures; I entered the website you posted the address, Richard and could understand well the problems some photographers have to face when the matter is "not allow to". Wow... Thank you for these new pics, Rich and sorry the ignorance, but who is Fran? Lots of love! XXXXX

Posted by isa at 10:22pm, 25 Jul 2010

Happy birthday Fran!!! :)

Posted by ana_lore at 10:02pm, 25 Jul 2010

The cake looks delicious! Tom and the crowd .. Just brilliant and perfect!!. Great pic. Please come to Brazil soon! BIG kiss Tom :)

Posted by RACHEL-RIO-BRAZIL at 9:52pm, 25 Jul 2010

Did anyone get a pic of the crazy guy that climbed on stage!? Lol. Tom...I love your hair cut...sexy.

Posted by Michelle316 at 9:49pm, 25 Jul 2010

Hey, Richard, noticed you guys didn't miss a beat when that zealous fan rushed the stage....hope it didn't shake Tom up too much. Nice of him to shake the guy's hand, in spite of it all.....soooo funny when you threw the drumsticks up in the air.....quite the night, eh? .....Anyway, thanks once again for the photos as well as the Tweets...following along for both!....See you in Chicago...and I promise not to rush the stage!....Hope you're enjoying America!...Sherry W., Michigan, USA.

Posted by Sherry W. at 9:39pm, 25 Jul 2010

Interesting art work! And happy B-day to Fran! Thanks a lot for uploading, Rich! Many hugs from Colombia :)

I like the pattern & colours of the 2nd pic, under the boxer-guy! Yes, there´s already a video of the guy, who jumped to the stage on youtube - during Crystal Ball. I guess odd moment! You never know, what people are about. The pic of Ingrid Michaelson, you didn´t focused her. And no babylense-pic? Ok, yes, the Keane-bag is great. Thanks, for all the pics.

Posted by Johanna at 9:24pm, 25 Jul 2010

Richard has really good photos... I wonder which camera he uses??? ... LOVE TO KEANE FROM NEPAL!!!!

Posted by nina at 6:18am, 25 Jul 2010

Vegas was great you guys. It was our 13th wedding anniversary and we loved spending it with you. We were of the minority there that were sober and we loved every minute of the show. You guys did an awesome job, we can't wait to see you next time around. I heard that Night Train was somewhat inspired by your experiences on the overnight train from Moscow to St. Petersburg. My wife is from Moscow and we lived there for a couple of years after we got married. I have spent a few nights on that train. In case you have to take it again, just hold it until you get off the train the next morning, the bathroom train car experience can lead to future psychological disorders. You guys are great and we love you in Southern Utah. PS what was up with that grandma in the front? I was surprised that she did not jump on the stage as opposed to that other guy. Take it easy, Craig.

Thanks for the amazing pictures! It was an amazing night at the Greek Wed. Your music gets under my skin for weeks after I see you live.

Richard you still look dashing even after rolling out of bed at 5 am. Can't wait to see you in Milwaukee. Maybe we can finally solve our murder mystery of the Ambassador hotel. Lots of love, Mara

Posted by dianeparkhurst at 1:53am, 24 Jul 2010

Hello Richard! Great photos...IT WAS AWESOME to see you at the Greek Theater in LA and get to meet and talk to you afterwards. I was the young brunette student that told you about how your music has inspired me and my mom, the world cup, and told you that my mom told TIm last year that you guys are better than Coldplay. and you said how my mom is a wise woman. haha You really made my night...and since that night, I have been thinking positvely with everything around me. My mom told me that You are sweet and thanks for wishing her the best of health and recovery. She loves you guys! I can never thank you and the rest of Keane enough...I wish you guys the VERY best and hope to see you again for the 5th time next year! :) Enjoy the rest of US!

You obviously have a passion for photography and thanks to you, those of us not lucky enough to visit these places can at least see them through your eyes! Thanks again and hope the tour is still going great guns! Cant wait till you all come home tho! Lots of Love Tracy and Charlotte in Romford. :o) x

Norms is where you go to eat and discus the concert you have just enjoyed cause they are open 24/7. Norms or Denny's. Don't order the waffles at Norms at midnight though, It seems that the waffle maker is always broken around that time. :) Just a heads up.

Posted by redrosespeedway at 10:37pm, 23 Jul 2010

Was there at Jimmy Kimmel and the Greek. Made everyone on my facebook watch the show last night, and I do believe you have new fans. Everyone was like, " oh I know that song" ( my shadow, cause it plays on my works radio along with clear skies) Thanks for the wonderful experience and pictures. So sad its over for me now though. Back to reality. I will follow you through your photos. Bye for now.

Posted by isa at 9:08pm, 23 Jul 2010

HELOISA, ISA FROM BRASIL, SAO PAULO **** MANY GREAT PICS, indeed, but my favourite is not yours, Rich, but the one with YOU, who looks particularly handsome in a beautiful t-shirt and we can see well your beautiful eyes (probably the most beautiful eyes I´ve seen so near me in 2006). Well, Tim also has marvelous blue eyes, different ones, I guess. Anyway, I do not mean to be rude, but Las Vegas, well, it´s a place I never would go in my intire life, I think is to tacky, or am I wrong? The archtecture I alway see in the movies and photos, OMG, so horrible... so fake, ha ha. Well, at least we can laugh a bit! Sorry people who lives in LV, but these are my feelings about it, although I admit I can be wrong. Bye fellows and lots of love! XXXX

Posted by isa at 9:05pm, 23 Jul 2010

Hi Richard!! Hope that you're enjoying the U.S. We've been having a heat wave here in Ohio too! I saw your performance on Jimmy Kimmel show , it was GREAT!! Thanks Again for the update. Stay Cool!!! LOVE YOU KEANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by mislynny at 9:02pm, 23 Jul 2010

Thank you for the new pictures Richard, it's good to know what you're all up to :) Not only that, it's always a pleasure to look at your photos, they're all very inspiring! Have fun with the rest of your tour x

Posted by thatsophiegirl at 8:50pm, 23 Jul 2010

Guess what, Keane where mentioned on The Weakest Link tonight, question "what group had hits with the albums Under the Iron Sea and Perfect Symmetry?" - the contestant " Girls Aloud? " Ann Robinson- "No Keane" DOH !!! Some people! Guys you really have arrived ha ha!! Have a great time out there. Rita.x

Posted by rita bischoff at 8:16pm, 23 Jul 2010

Hello everybody) Thankfully haven't yet switched the computer off and saw the new photos Richard added. Richard, thank you very much for taking the time and sharing with all of us your experiences - the moments of your lives captured on photos. This is really great to be able to see all of you being happy, safe and sound, and enjoying this US tour together. Very beautiful places you attended, and it's very pleasant we also can see them thanks to you. I like absolutely all the photos (funny with the crabs, and the ones with the sky, and with the white ball or lamp... mm, just amazing), and it's nice to see you at last, Richard. Good looking man. :) It was hard to spot Tim, though, waving... too far away. ;) You've been to Egypt Museum in Las Vegas today? Great, must be very interesting. Oh, and those high temperatures... You know, here where I live we also got used to such summer temperatures (42 C degrees in the sun). It's really very hard to stand this heat, especially for animals (my dog hardly bears such weather, gasping for breath). Alright, sorry for venting of my thoughts. Sincerely glad for all of you, and thank you very much for the music, dear Tom, Tim, Richard and Jesse. Best wishes.

Posted by olenenok at 8:06pm, 23 Jul 2010

Great pictures Rich its allways fun to see your interesting pictures :D I hope you're having a great time in USA! PS: If you liked that KEANE bag of her's you would love mine :P

Posted by MyRanita97 at 8:06pm, 23 Jul 2010

YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! Thank you SO much for the picture of youself, Richard! :D I absolutely looove it! Let´s take some more soon. :D Take care and keep having lots of fun touring!

Hey Rich!! Great photos today!! I see a dog over there... And you post a SELF-PORTRAIT xD Thank you!! Though you look sad... or just tired?? I hope you're fine :) HUGE HUGS FROM CHILE :)

Posted by Dra_House at 7:58pm, 23 Jul 2010

Cool, new pics! (that´s my sense of life, waiting for Richard´s pics) hmm, well, yes somewhere I´ve heard that Las Vegas is build up in the desert. And usually the nights at the deserts are fresh, but the days are hot. But, 42 degrees, you can survive this! That´s what I´m used, if I go to the south of Spain. Maybe, that´s why they had invented the Siesta, between 3PM & 5PM? Looks like the architect of the Sphinx messed it up a bit, eh? And of course another pic taken in the middle of the road! But, I´m happy to see, that the USA-tour is going so well. Have fun (of course you do) & keep blogging pics, thanks! I hope to see at least a babylense-photo, again.

Posted by pfox023 at 7:33pm, 23 Jul 2010

I don´t know if you ever noticed but in every picture you take during the shows there´s a brazilian flag, which I totally love!!! Isn´t that a sign that you should come back, like, as soon as possible??? Love ya! And, oh... Tom you look hotter than ever!!!!

it could be, that some days ago, I stared too much the crab-pic as on the other night I´ve dreamed that Tim was doing an interview, while he was making music with a machine like a radiator & pushing some buttons. Tom was sitting on a roof, with his guitar and observing people from a festival or something. Sorry, no Richard in the dream & my part I had to go via a boat to the ground of the sea to have dinner. It must have been the crab. Anyway, no I guess there are more rubbish photos on the worldwibe-web, than your lovely in the kind going dangerous middle in the street Hollywood-pic! So, a magazine called Young Hollywood ( I thought in Hollywood everybody is young? Cliché, again). Ok, I see still no babylense-pic or night-shot-pic. The paper lamp is nice, I like those lamps! But, the shadow inside looks like somebody got hanged? I could write more, but that´s enough, already. Thanks, for sharing the pics, Richard!

well it sure was an F'N rock out show last night guys. You blew me away again. Whats wrong with my hand though Tom? You touched everyone near me but mine. :( That would have made the night stupendous. But I must say that that night was the best concert ever!!!! SEE YOU AT JIMMY KIMMEL TONIGHT! :) You better be there :)

HELOISA, ISA FROM BRASIL, SAO PAULO *** OMG Rich, these photos are incredibly good, marvelous indeed! Jesse appears twice, pretengind (was he?) make a phone call from a phone cabin and nearby a great building, both of the cases he looks great with his legs/feet in a nice way... Loved it! The birds in the music shop, great, ha ha! My favourite one is the white building, very thin... we have here in São Paulo (you would like to take a walk by the centre of this capital!) some like it, from the 20´s, I guess... I think they were inspired in some French archtecture, but I am not sure. European, surely. MANY THANKS, RICH! All of them are great, as always! :.) LOTS OF LOVE! XXXX

Grazie Rich per l' aggiornamento del tuo photoblog americano! Sono tornata proprio adesso dal mare e ho trovato questa fantastica sorpresa ! Siete bellissimi tu e Tom, complimenti ragazzi! Un abbraccio a voi tutti da Sabrina from Catania, Sicilia! VI AMO TANTISSIMO!!!

Posted by Sabrina v. at 2:03pm, 22 Jul 2010

Hehe... the pic of Jesse is really cool!! ;)

Posted by MyEyesOpen at 12:50pm, 22 Jul 2010

Love the pics as always. Making a closer world, more personal. Pic number 5 is my bedroom lamp … Jesse Q talking by phone reminds me to Bonnie and Clyde esthetics . SF looks a very interesting place to visit, especially now that Oackland is the first city in the US licensing wholesale pot cultivation of some well known herb (only for med uses). Nico , tell us about it! Kisses from Madrid

Sorry, I mean freedom of expression. Good luck for the show tonight!

Posted by Mihajasoa at 11:12am, 22 Jul 2010

Thanks for the update Richard! I hope the interviews went well. Nice pics and comments. It's interesting to see that art is at the heart of city life thanks to murals -not to mention architecture. Moreover the painters seem to use their talent not just for esthetic reasons but to convey some kind of messages as well. Nice illustration of freedom of (artisitc) speech, unless they were commissioned to do the job, but I don't see some propaganda there (sound, soul, soul, soul, soul, heart...).

Posted by Mihajasoa at 11:02am, 22 Jul 2010

It's cool to see you guys enjoying America, and I love your pictures! I can't wait to get out of America or at least Illinois.

I wonder if the lady in the cupcake shop has any idea that a member of one of the best bands out there has taken her picture. I'd love to be the subject of a photo moment for you Richard. You might catch me folding panties at Victoria's Secret. Or stocking shelves at Stater Bros. Grocery. :)

Posted by Redrosespeedway at 1:37am, 21 Jul 2010

I like very much, Rich that your pics want to say something, they are a real story! 1 st pic is maybe a little abstract, 3 rd as well, 2nd shows an typical American architecture i know it from photos of my grandfather´s sister Susan Moser who lived in a such like this house , in NJ. 4 th pic is very realistic- No smoking area with an empty bench! 5 th - A wage or a loot? And I love very much 6 th pic- typical American care - Trespassers will be prosecuted - but and it is very important on behalf of your security !! 7 th Unsafe area - of 8 th Monsters?, do not enter in Alcatraz- also unsafe area for sombody.... 10 th Yellow cable care F - like fabulous, 11 th pic is No 1? 15 th- you were on a chemical field trip? and yes, 16 th thank you very much Rich, you are very kind, 20 th where is furniture? it slid down , probably, 23 th pic is veery artistic- a show of shadows and your ? feet, 24 th Lego building, 25 th Electromobiles- this awful BP oil spoil !!! , etc. etc. God Bless you, America, Rich and Keane... g. nite

HELOISA, ISA FROM BRASIL, SAO PAULO *** As I said before, I am a dinossaure, so, I did like to see the pic of the streetcar in San Francisco, lovely! It reminds me my childhood in a small town nearby Sao Paulo where I live now, the capital. Old good times (I guess). We had Beatles and now we have KEANE! :.) A crab? I wonder where you have found a crab!!!! Marvelous pic, indeed! Alcatraz? It sounds to me a prison! Haaaa! The famous movie! Thank you dear Rich, your photos are really great; I am posting your photos at my page on orkut, but of course your name as the author is there... of course! I want more people know well your work, besides being the great drummer you are. LOTS OF LOVE! XXXXXX

Posted by isa at 10:33pm, 20 Jul 2010

Great pics Richard. I was in San Francisco earlier this year and took a couple of pictures that are eerily similar to yours. Particularly the one of the cupcake store front. I had stayed at the Hilton up the street from there and had made it a ritual to go there and try a different cupcake during my stay. They were awesome.

Posted by moondogie1 at 10:27pm, 20 Jul 2010

Rich, your pics are beautiful, you should publish a book with them, it will be a blockbuster. Thank you for your kindness, Regina

YEAH, finally a yellow cable-car! They are all yellow, right? Ok, worst caption ever from me: where are the people who sat on the bench before? Dude, just look what the signs say "NON Smoking area" Sorry, as I said bad caption. And it looks like the crab is happy to see you looks like she or he is smiling.

Posted by Johanna at 9:23pm, 20 Jul 2010

I never was over the big pond, but I always thought that in SF has much more traffic. I know I shouldn´t have watched as a child the TV-Series The Streets from San Francisco, looks like I´ve got a bad cliché! So, the sweet, little muffin-cakes are from Starbucks? At least it´s written in mirror-inverted letters. Best pic is the hat-shop. How did you do this? No shadow of yourself in the shop-window. The sience-lab-pic is, hmm, strange, nice, funny. Any comments about the meat-pic?

HELOISA, ISA FROM BRASIL, SAO PAULO *** WOW, the best pics ever, in my point of vew. Wonderful, superb ones! The one with the red/orange chairs is marvelous, without tables around, and just the chairs talking to themselves (ha ha!). No, seriously, this pic is so poetic! I love that much! :.) The old man walking (very slowly, I supose) nearby the graffiths, very colourful, on the wall, great one, indeed! I liked the contrasting the photo proposes. The yellow cars in a kind of parade and the pidgeon seeing them, wow, what a fortune this pic, indeed! The workman with the troyler... marvelous, I could talk about your pics all day, so, I will say bye bye now or I would not be polite. Many thanks, Rich, these pics must go to a photo book! I mean, a book made of paper and everything, since we can´t trust much on the internet. Thank you! LOTS OF LOVE! XXXXX

Richard--safe surrender sites are to encourage terrified mothers to abandon their babies, safely and without fear of arrest, instead of putting them in the garbage or a toilet. Also? I have a picture of that Little City Meat Market sign in my collection somewhere!

Thank you Richard for this new photoblog and your first comments on your arrival in the US. I understand when you say that you cannot sleep, and you have been up since 4am. I arrived a couple of days ago in Houston from Italy and have the same problem. You're lucky you have this problem the first morning only...I usually need a week to recover from my 7hours jetlag :S Terrible... Onion rings look delicious and very "artistic" :P and Colin apparently is enjoying his dinner as well. Everything is strange odd and different in the US, I always like your pictures very much so, please keep uploading as many as you can in your sleepless nights :) I can't wait to see you in Texas. Lots of love, Simona. Ciao!

ok, I´m back from work & have time to dedicate my hobby as a fan-stalker. I must say I like the both neon signs from Loris Diner (sorry, don´t know, how to put this 2nd point above & between the i &s). It´s a very classical and sweet one. But, how can you eat onion rings & drink milkshake? How does this fit together? Maybe, a classical british habit? Well, thanks for keep us informing. Fight the jetlag;)

Posted by Johanna at 9:37pm, 19 Jul 2010

Hi. I hope that you’re fast asleep, at last. I too hope that you don’t close your eyes too long, if you’re on stage ;) Seriously: great pictures, I love your comments, and your imaginative portraits, you’re awesome! Where is Lori? :D Mmmm, onion rings (they look like hula-hoops, everything is king size, in the U.S.A. ;) Thanks for dedicating time to us, it means a lot! Have a great time! Best of our smiles for you all, lads!
