Keane made a welcome return last year following six-year hiatus. The band released its first record since 2012's Strangeland. The latest record Cause and Effect was supported with a sold-out UK tour.
The record follows on from their succession of previous No 1 albums put out throughout 00s. Collectively the four-piece have accumulated over 13 million sales worldwide with best-selling albums Under The Iron Sea, Perfect Symmetry, Strangeland and their seminal debut Hopes and Fears. The record spawned Keane's hit singles 'Somewhere Only We Know', 'Everybody's Changing', 'This Is The Last Time', and 'Bedshaped'.
Keane join headline acts Will Young and James Morrison for the 2020 concert series and fans can expect to hear a collection of hits new and old. The specially-curated programme, managed by the Forestry England, is renowned for transforming UK forests into atmospheric music venues throughout the summer. The income generated from ticket sales goes towards sustaining the UK's forests. Previous Forest Live line-ups have included: Pulp, Bryan Ferry, Madness, Massive Attack, UB40, Van Morrison, and The Human League among others.
Support for the Keane shows, as well as further headline acts, are to be announced later in the year.
