Keane to play Live In London show at Apple Store
The official statement goes a little something like this…
Keane will be performing a special acoustic set on Tuesday evening, 12th December 2006 as part of the exclusive iTunes Live from London series at the Apple Store on Regent Street.
The set will feature songs from Keane’s Number One album Under The Iron Sea, which was one of the biggest releases on the iTunes Store this year. The set will also feature some surprises.
