Radiohead will tour from February to November in 2012

Radiohead have already said that they will tour in 2012.  In a recent interview with BBC 6 Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien revealed some more information about the forthcoming tour.

In his interview with BBC 6Music,  Ed O’Brien confirmed that the band would be on the road for most of 2012, he said: “We’re finalizing dates now, we’ll be on the road from the end of February to November and we’ll be playing in both the UK and US, the usual ports of call.”

When asked about the set-list for the tour he said: “It has to be a set in itself, last time we went out it was like In Rainbows and a greatest hits, but it’s not going to be like that this time,”.

He also added:

“Some of the shows will be outside, but the ones in Europe will be inside and I think that’s very much a reaction to when we played last time. We played in the height of summer and compromised our production. Outdoor gigs can be great, but the sound can get diluted, you’re at the mercy of the elements and I think the record demands a space where the music is loud, strong and detailed.”

Listen to the interview:

The band is also set to return the the recording studio in December and January.

And Thom’s other band Atoms For Peace album is expected to be released this year, so if everything goes as planned we should see that album within the next 10 weeks.

I have created a page on the site which contains all of the live performances from The King Of Limbs as well as a page with all of the information on their forthcoming tour.
