Chart-topping indie rockers Keane plays their first show in the North East of England in almost seven years.

Following a lengthy hiatus that spanned between 2014 – 2018, the group returned to the forefront this summer with the release of their eagerly anticipated fifth studio album Cause and Effect. This being the band’s first full-length album since 2012’s Strangeland.

Tonight Keane arrives on Tyneside for a show at the Newcastle City Hall in support of their latest offering. This show comes hot off the back of a two-night residency at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Subsequently, a full house in attendance to witness the band’s return.

This evening Keane’s career-spanning 25 song set centres on their latest record with the lion’s share of the album included in the show. As the fans would want and expect these songs are interspersed between many of the band’s classics such as “Everybody’s Changing”, “Somewhere Only We Know” and “Is It Any Wonder”, to name but a few.

With Cause and Effect, Keane is once again at the top of their game and tonight that sentiment rings true. The band proving that despite their absence they’ve still got so much more to offer.

Our photographer Adam Kennedy was on hand to capture the scenes on the night.
