British Band Keane Cancels U.S. Tour As Frontman Goes Into Rehab



Keane star in rehab, band postpones tour.

British band Keane has been forced to cancel a planned US tour as frontman Tom Chaplin goes into rehab for drugs and alcohol treatment.

"I've been having to deal with an increasing problem with drink and drugs, and the time has come to get the professional help I need to sort myself out," Chaplin said on the band's Web site (www.keanemusic.com) on Tuesday August 22nd. "I feel desperately disappointed to be letting down our fans, but I want to get myself right now so that I can be back on the road for the rest of the year."

The band actually had been due to kick off their North American tour September 7 in Chicago. But the rehab, moreover, has also forced Keane to postpone a trio of European gigs, the Ibiza Rocks Festival in Spain on Wednesday, the T on the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh Aug 30, and a secret show in Dublin Aug. 31--in addition to dates in major U.S. and Canadian cities.

New North American dates will be announced in the coming days with tickets for the three canceled concerts, in Ibiza, Edinburgh and Dublin, would be refunded.
