Keane join The Last Shadow Puppets and The Streets

Keane have been added to this year's BBC Electric Proms line-up.

The trio have announced plans to appear at Koko in London on 23 October.

They join The Last Shadow Puppets, The Streets, Tony Christie, Nitin Sawhney and Chaka Khan on the bill, with the event being staged in London and Liverpool.

Razorlight, Burt Bacharach and Goldfrapp have also been announced for the five-day music festival which will be held from 22-26 October.

To mark the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever topping the charts in the UK, Robin Gibb will also perform alongside Sam Sparro and Sharleen Spiteri with the BBC Concert Orchestra in London's Roundhouse on October 25.

The Last Shadow Puppets and Tony Christie will be playing in Liverpool on 24 October and 22.

Meanwhile, The Streets, Nitin Sawhney, Wild Beasts and XX Teens, will also be appearing in the England capital.

The event is normally held around various venues in Camden including The Roundhouse, KOKO and The Barfly. But this year organisers decided to expand the event.

Last year Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Editors, Reverend And The Makers, Mark Ronson, Chemical Brothers and Sir Paul McCartney were among the acts who performed.

The first BBC Electric Proms was held two years ago when Damon Albarn and Paul Simonon's The Good, The Bad and The Queen played their debut live show.
