Rock band Keane turned up the heat with a sensational set on the hottest day of the year as the mercury soared to 30C at High Lodge on Friday night.

When the band took to the stage just after 9pm to an almighty roar, there was a huge sense of relief that the group were finally playing a gig originally planned for the postponed 2021 Forest Live series.

Greeting the Norfolk crowd for the first time in more than a decade since last performing at the venue, frontman Tom Chaplin said: "At least we got the one warm night of the year to be here. Just enjoy yourselves everybody."

As if anyone needed an invitation to do that, as the group belted out hit after hit in front of their adoring fans.

Chaplin's vocals were flawless as the band began with a set including Disconnected and Silenced by the Light from 2012's album Strangeland,

This was followed by Nothing in my Way, from Hopes and Fears (2004); Love Too Much and The Way I Feel (Cause and Effect, 2019).

Pictures and videos were the order of the day as the band sang Bend and Break from 2004 smash-hit album Hopes and Fears, before huge cheers greeted Everything's Changing and the phone torches came out in their droves for My Shadow.

Hardcore Keane fans knew every single song that they played, almost word for word, as Spiralling, This is the Last Time and Somewhere Only We Know, had a huge crowd on their feet.

"This has been so much fun, thank you," said Tom as the band left the stage at the end of the set.

A three-song encore, including Neon River and Sovereign Light Café, brought an incredible Forest Live gig to a conclusion.

It was a spectacular night and Keane will continue to enrich the lives of fans, both old and new, with their music for many years to come.
