Keane to start world tour in Bexhill-on-Sea

With album sales of over 10 million, Keane have become one of the UK's biggest selling bands.
But while their fan base today stretches around the world, 15 years ago, it was pretty much confined to a small part of East Sussex where they grew up.
And it is to East Sussex that Keane have returned for the opening night of their world tour which starts tonight.
Tim Muffett has been to meet them.
