A quarter of the tickets for a one-off fundraising concert given by two founders of Keane have already been snapped up.

Just 400 lucky music fans will be able to enjoy the acoustic gig with Tom Chaplin and Tim Rice-Oxley in Battle on August 8.

The concert coincides with an international gathering of Keane fans, with fans from as far away as Canada and Australia expected to descend on 1066 Country that weekend.

One hundred gig tickets had been allocated to those attending the gathering and all have sold.

Organisers say another 100 tickets are being reserved for Battle residents.

A venue for the gig has yet to be confirmed.

Proceeds will go to the Battle Festival.
