UK support act announced 13 January 2009


We're pleased to announce that the support act on Keane's upcoming UK tour will be Frankmusik, the rising electro-popster responsible for the bangin' remix of Perfect Symmetry. He will be appearing at all shows, apart from Belfast and Dublin (whose support acts will be announced soon).

When we spoke to Tim last week, he explained why the band chose Frankmusik. "We really like him a lot. I think we want to create a sense of it being a kind of celebratory event each time we play a show. That kind of party atmosphere is something that we felt very strongly on the big tours in 2007. It felt like there was a real sense of occasion, rather than people just turning up and watching a gig and going home again. I think that's a great thing about a Keane gig and it's something we really want to enjoy and add to. And I think Frankmusik will be brilliant for that."

To hear some Frankmusik tracks, check out his rather hectic MySpace here. Or read more about him on the BBC's Sound of 2009 pages (he was on the longlist for the award).
