Thom Yorke Confirms Radiohead Tour for 2012
Frontman Thom Yorke confirmed Radiohead will be on tour in 2012. To date the band has performed just one live show this year at Glastonbury in June to support “The King Of Limbs,” their new album. Yorke confirmed with Giles Peterson during an interview on BBC Radio 1 that the band was going on tour. He said, the idea is we will be going out to play on and off throughout the year.
On September 20 Radiohead announced that on September 28 and 29 they will be performing at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. They will also be appearing on “Saturday Night Live” while in New York.
Yorke’s comments were consistent with comments made in July by Philip Selway, Radiohead’s drummer, who said on BBC 6Music that their successful Glastonbury gig had helped to re-ignite the band’s passion for performing live. He said, it was exciting to do that. It felt like musically we have something more to offer, when he was asked if Radiohead was planning to perform more live gigs.
Radiohead’s singer also revealed that Clive Deamer from Portishead, who performed with them at Glastonbury, will be touring with the band.
In addition Yorke discussed his plans for releasing a new album with his project Atoms For Peace with Flea, bassist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and producer Nigel Godrich. He indicated they were currently finishing the album.
Recently Yorke performed a show in Cornwell during European Fish Fry festival.
Ticket details and tour dates for the upcoming Radiohead tour should be out by the latter part of this year.
