Re Tonight's Little Noise appearance

Hello Everyone,

Unfortunately we've got to pull out of performing a short set at tonight's Little Noise show… I'm afraid I've caught this bug that's going around and I can't hit the high notes! We're gutted to be missing out on such a great night but we hope you all have lots of fun - the lineup looks amazing! Obviously we'd love to come back and make up for it some time in the future, so we'll see you then.

Lots of love,

Tom x

I missed this, I haven't seen it until now. I'm late, but I'm sorry for what happened Tom. I've heard of another band who played here, got it recorded (has it on record), however it was really bad that it never really happened if I understand this (right.) I feel a little confused, any way... A new year, changes and much more. 2013! I'm too late to say Congratulations, but who cares? No one. I hope to hear more from you guys. I love you Keane! Love you guys!

It was logical that the tour anywhere and anytime Tom get sick. is unfortunate for the artists who sing them sick but they are also living beings! I love you take care of yourself! I send many kisses and hugs to you recover soon!

Tom, breathe in hot water/steam, take hot water and lemon for colds and throats- and I'm afraid you just have to wait it out for stomach bugs. Just get well for the start of the tour, and even take out all the songs with the higher notes. Remember what happened to Adele and Brandon, singing the high notes when your voice can't take the strain doesn't work!

ohhh! so sorry to hear that, luv! Please take care, Tom!!! Truth be told, you were in my thoughts when I've read about Brandon (The Killers) losing his voice in their recent gig. Get well soon!!!! *hugs & kisses from Belgium*

That's sad news. I hope you feel better soon, Tom. Take all the time you need to build up your strength and spirits. Your job right now is to relax and recover.  Sending you healing thoughts and a little sunshine to brighten your day.  Wishing you a speedy recovery! Lots of love from Jakarta  Xoxo, Livia.

ISA, from Brasil, Sao Paulo *** I´ve read a comment about sore throat below and have to say (not in case of a bug, of course) that the best medicine to sore throat is a home treatment with propolis, that is from bees. Some drops in a small portion of warm (not hot) water and you can feel better some minutes after, since it´s a kind of antibiothics. I hope this can help someone... Also another home treatment is: little portion of warm water, lemmon, salt and a small portion of honey. Also for gargling... All the best to our dearest Tommy! XXX

Hola Keane. Con cierta desilusión Catalonia nunca será independiente y la consulta para que el pueblo decida es bastante improbable.

Espero Tom que te mejores. Quizá Tim te pueda dar algun medicamento. En las notas altas estás excitante. Espero London AO Arenas. El diseño del escenario. En Barcelona, como dijiste Tom, estabas cansado de la Gira Europea. Richard estuvo excelente. Seguía el ritmo a toque de cronómetro. Para mí fue el mejor de los quatro. Marisa. Barcelona.Petons.

It's so sweet of you to bother writing this and let people know what's going on... I wish I could be in London even if you both only played a song, even if you couldn't hit the high notes... I'm sure it'll be amazing anyway. You are wonderful musicians and amazing human beings. I wish you guys a great night nevertheless and Tom, please get well soon. We love you very much. Take care. x

Supongo que forma parte del programa de conciertos. Interpreto que acuden Tom and Tim. Mencap parece ser una asociación que ayuda a niños con dificultades de aprendizage.Qué suerte poder estar allí !! Tim, decirte, que colgaré fotos en el Instagram relacionadas solamente con la música. No imágenes privadas que vulneran el derecho de la intimidad personal. Mi apellido es vidal. Besos. Marisa. Barcelona.

Sono veramente felice di apprendere questa notizia , come sempre i Keane hanno un cuore grande e generoso, aderiscono con entusiasmo alle iniziative di beneficenza e questo è degno di lode! Poi mi piace tantissimo l'idea che si esibiranno in una chiesa dove si respira l'atmosfera giusta per il Natale! Auguro un in bocca al lupo a Tim e Tom e spero vivamente che questa piccola sessione acustica venga poi trasmessa anche qui su Keanemusic , per me sarebbe un dolcissimo e bellissimo regalo di Natale da parte della band! Un forte abbraccio ai Keane da Sabrina from Catania, ciao!!!

Deseo con todo el espiritu de mi alma, que alla donde quiera que se encuentren, dese Austria, en Berlin, Praga, España o en cualquier otra parte del mundo, que de todos modos estaran en nuestros corazones, en la musica, y por su puesto en la inconmensurable experiencia de la vida de quien lucha constantemente, como su fiel admiradora estoy orgullosa de lo que hacen cada día no importando el lugar en donde han estado , la humildad los caracteriza y eso se merece un Aleluya!!!!!

I have been waiting for AGES for this kind of gig to come up. I hope Tim and Tom do a fair few songs, I can't wait to see them in an acoustic setting. I too have a 5 year old son who is disabled (he is severely autistic) and Mencap have been a great support for us. They deserve every penny they get. I'm so glad Keane support such an amazing charity. Thanks guys, you keep doing what you do best. Really looking forward to it! xxx

I am very, very proud of being your fan! Hope that we can somehow follow this beautiful and so emotional venue in ulterior videos,etc...Thank you Tom, Tim and of course Rich and Jesse - for the bottom of my heart - congratulations for being...such inspiring Human Beings***
