Latter-day rock legends Radiohead announced plans this week for their first full US tour since 2008, due to begin in February.
Kicking off on 27 February in Miami, Radiohead fans will be putting on their music t-shirts across America, as the Oxford superstars perform gigs in Tampa, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Austin, St Louis, Kansas City and Broomfield, before finishing up on 15 March in Glendale, Arizona.
Explaining the rationale behind the tour, guitarist Ed O’Brien said recently on a BBC Radio 6 interview, that “the last time we went out if felt very much like In Rainbows plus a greatest hits, and it’s not going to be like that this time.”
“It’s going to be predominantly this record and the last record, and then see which songs fit around that. I think the important thing is it’s got to be a set in itself; it’s got to work.”
Tickets for the US tour are available to fan club members at their website from tomorrow and to the general public from Saturday.
