I’m a die-hard Keane fan. My goal in 2013 is to avoid seeing repeat concerts because it’s expensive and honestly, once is enough, right? I’m not through January and I’ve already busted my rule. But Keane follows no rule of thumb. Having toured the entire world for the last 12 months supporting Strangeland, I felt honored to be at Radio City Music Hall to see their very last concert of the tour.
They played all my favorites: “Bend and Break,” “We Might As Well Be Strangers,” “Is It Any Wonder?” and “This Is The Last Time.” Frontman Tom Chaplin still has one of the finest voices in pop music, and pianist Tim Rice-Oxley pounds the keys on “Neon River” and “On the Road” like no other. My favorite moments included “My Shadow” from Night Train, “A Bad Dream” and “Bedshaped.” Classic Keane. I dread having to wait another year for new music. Get to work!
