Story by Jack Foley

KEANE have announced a UK arena tour in 2007, including a date at Wembley Arena in February.

The band, who recently completed a series of dates which culminated in two sold-out nights at London’s Alexandra Palace, will be playing nine dates at the beginning of the year.

Singer Tom Chaplin, who has put his drug problems behind him following a stint in rehab in September, said that the reaction from fans during the last UK dates had served as an inspiration to get back on the road so quickly.

He said in a statement: “Our recent tour has reminded us of why we picked up our instruments and started making music in the first place. After the problems I’ve had this year, I felt the best buzz of my life getting back amongst the love and boundless enthusiasm of our fans and now we want to take that to another level.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 24.

The full dates are (all 2007):

22 – Bournemouth BIC
23 – Birmingham NEC
25 – Nottingham Arena
26 – Cardiff CIA
28 – London Wembley Arena

3 – Sheffield Hallam FM Arena
4 – Manchester MEN Arena
