Keane Singer Enters Rehab, US Tour Postponed

(08-22) 06:31 PDT LONDON, United Kingdom (AP) --


A planned U.S. tour by Keane has been postponed while singer Tom Chaplin is being treated for drug and alcohol addiction, the British band said Tuesday.


In a statement posted on the band's Web site, Chaplin, 27, said he was "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."


The tour had been due to start in Chicago on Sept. 7.


"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," Chaplin said.


Keane had already canceled several appearances, citing Chaplin's "exhaustion."


The trio released their melodic debut album, "Hopes and Fears," in 2004. Their second album, "Under the Iron Sea," entered the British album charts at No. 1 when it was released in June.

well, that's one band off the V-Fest list... hope he get's his shit sorted out. Goes to show us that Tom has the same problems as many other rock stars - just not as OTT as Pete Doherty.

Bands pull Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds performances
Illness forces two groups out of this year's bash
- The Organ have been forced to pull out of the Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds Festivals.

The band have announced that they won't be playing this year's bash, which takes place between August 25 and 27.

According to their website Theorgan.ca, the band have had to pull their Carling Stage appearance due to illness.

"It is with deep regret that we have to cancel our performances at the Reading and Leeds festivals due to severe exhaustion which has created a medical problem for one of our band members," they explained in a statement.

"We want to assure our audiences that we are not breaking up, but that time is needed for recovery."

The Chicago show, which had rescheduled in December, has now been cancelled. Weak.
