British rockers Keane ended the U.S. tour supporting their latest record, ‘Strangeland,’ in New York City last night (Jan. 31), treating fans at Radio City Music Hall to a grand set prefaced by Youngblood Hawke.

Keane kicked off their performance with new tracks ‘You are Young’ and ‘On the Road’ but also played older favorites such as ‘Bend and Break’ and ‘We Might as Well Be Strangers.’

The band exudes charm and has classy stage presence. Their dramatic lighting enhanced the show, setting the mood and helping to evoke the emotion so evident in their music. Fans were enthusiastic throughout the show, but they were particularly amped up during Keane’s better-known tracks, among them ‘Everybody’s Changing,’ ‘Silenced By the Night,’ ‘A Bad Dream,’ ‘Spiralling’ and of course, ‘Somewhere Only We Know.’

When it comes to frontman Tom Chapin, don’t let the baby face and soft, crisp vocals fool you: He’s no amateur. Thursday night, Chapin worked the massive Radio City stagefrom end to end, and the entire band had folks’ hands clapping and hips shaking during and in between songs.

Los Angeles indie crew Youngblood Hawke opened with a charismatic performance of their own. They likely gained some new fans, thanks to their vigorous stage presence and the persistent energy of vocalist Sam Martin. By the end of their set, five out of six members were playing a percussive instrument, and their collective force was a sight to see.
