Backstage on Keane's South American tour

Keane

Keane have spent the last month scaling the heights of South America. Tim Rice-Oxley blogged their movements starting in Guadalajara where "we play an amazing gig and drink Mojitos."

Keane

"The one everyone's been excited about for months - Colombia! With nothing to go on, we really don't know what to expect, but Bogota turns out to be a beautiful and extremely friendly city."

Keane

"There may be a few more teenage soldiers with machine guns on the streets than you get in Camden, but the vibe is great. I spend the evening playing the guitar and watching ten episodes of Entourage."

Keane

"Richard (Hughes) is sick as a pig, so Tom (Chaplin) and I do the Colombian press conference. Then we all head over to the arena to sound check and say hello to the Colombian Keane fan club."

Keane

"It's a gorgeous evening in Santiago, with barbecue and cocktails to complete the picture. Tom and I sit on my roof terrace until 6am playing Beatles songs and talking about Michael Jackson."

Keane

"We play a really incredible show in Argentina and the crowd sing their hearts out under the stars. I lose about a stone in sweat, but we play really well, until I drop an obligatory clanger in Perfect."

Keane

"We head to La Recoleta, a beautiful and mysterious cemetery in Buenos Aires that's basically a city of large and mostly ornate tombs. Each one is the size of a garden shed and goes down five stories."

Keane

"We enjoy a lovely early-evening around Palermo Viejo, which is a really vibey and energised part of town. It's Tom's birthday so the hotel staff surprise him with a huge birthday cake."

Keane

"A crowd of fans are still camped outside the hotel after three days even as we finally head off on the tour bus. We're going to miss Argentina that's for sure."
