For Tim’s birthday, I treated him with tickets to the Keane concert! I bought the tickets the moment they went on sale and we got terrific seats. It was an AMAZING show! Mat Kearney, whose new song Closer to Love is on the radio right now, opened for them and was really good — just good, chill music that’s easy to listen to. On Mat Kearney’s tour blog, they said of the show, “The show tonight was the best one yet. Mat and the band sounded amazing.” Here’s some pictures and video we took of the show in case you missed it.
Mat Kearney opening:
I wanted to crop this man’s head… but I don’t have a cropping machine.
I was amazed at how theatrical Keane was in their performance style. The singer, Tom, used his arms a lot — exhibit A! And have you ever seen a keyboardist headbang? Well theirs did! And didn’t miss a note, amazingly! They were absolutely amazing. Kept us on our feet the entire time.
Here’s a video clip of Try Again:
If you aren’t familiar with either Mat Kearney or Keane, do yourself a favor and get acquainted! It’s excellent happy music. You’ll be happy you did.
