Surprise Glastonbury show announced 09 June 2010

We're very pleased to announce that Keane will be playing a surprise acoustic set at this year's Glastonbury Festival. The band will perform on the Avalon Stage on the afternoon of Sunday June 27th.

The band weren't originally due to perform at this year's Glastonbury, as they have sold out forest shows in Yorkshire and Staffordshire on the Friday and Saturday night of the festival. But the band themselves, as huge Glastonbury fans, really wanted to be there to help celebrate the festival's 40th Anniversary.

"We’ve been going to Glastonbury as punters for years now" says Tom.  "I love it there - we all do. The atmosphere simply cannot be beaten and it's the best place to stumble upon all sorts of amazing acts."

"The festival clashes with our UK Forest Tour this year but we really wanted to get involved with their 40th anniversary celebrations so, at the last minute, we've decided to play an acoustic set on the Avalon Stage on Sunday afternoon. We'll be arriving during the early hours of Sunday morning so will get to enjoy the last day of the festival too".

Keane will take to the Avalon Stage at 4.35pm on Sunday, June 27. They'll finish their (no doubt storming set) about an hour later. "And then," says Chaplin, "we'll get straight out there to enjoy the rest of the festival!"

Tickets for the festival have already sold out.
