Keane have announced two Irish dates as part of their forthcoming arena tour early in 2009. Opening the tour in Belfast’s Odyssey Arena on Friday 23 January, the trio will then play Dublin’s O2 before continuing the tour on into the UK. Tickets go on sale this Saturday 27 September at 10 am.
The band are set to release their third album Perfect Symmetry in Ireland on Friday 10 October. The follow up to 2006’s hugely successful Under The Iron Sea was recorded earlier this year in Paris, Berlin and the depths of the English countryside.

In May of this year both of Keane’s previous albums were voted into the Top 20 Best British Albums of all time by readers of Q Magazine with Under The Iron Sea landing at number 8, and Hopes And Fears at number 13.
