Keane to play Avalon Stage set

June 9, 2010

We’re pleased to announce that Keane will be playing a special set at the Avalon Stage on the Sunday afternoon of this year’s Festival.

The band, who recently topped the UK album chart for the fourth consecutive time with their Night Train EP, will perform an acoustic set at 4.35pm on Sunday 27th.

The Sussex trio weren’t originally due to perform at this year’s Glastonbury, as they have their own forest shows in Yorkshire and Staffordshire on the Friday and Saturday night of the Festival. But the band are huge Glastonbury fans and really wanted to come along and help celebrate the festival’s 40th Anniversary.

"We’ve been going to Glastonbury as punters for years now" says Keane frontman Tom Chaplin.  "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."
