Radiohead - Tour (Yeah) No Album (Boo!)


Here's the story, I guess my previous post wasn't too far off! Here's the info from Pitchforkmedia!

Radiohead Announce North American Tour, Finally!

Amy Phillips reports:
At last! Real, honest-to-goodness, confirmed Radiohead North American tour dates! I'm going to explode!

Looks like all of the rumors were true: the two-night stands, the intimate theaters, the Chicago and San Fran dates. Tickets for most shows go on sale May 5 and 6; see below for more details.

According to a press release, "set lists for the shows will draw heavily on the newer material the band has been working on over the past months. The performances will take place in smaller than usual venues, and will feature appropriately scaled down staging and lighting design, creating a suitably intimate environment for the first ever airings of several new songs."

So hopefully that doesn't mean that all of these shows will sell out in negative 5 seconds, and only people able to shell out thousands of dollars on eBay will be able to get in. But it probably does.

Here's Radiohead's full tour schedule:
