Radiohead announce 2016 world tour
Radiohead announced a series of 2016 concert dates Monday, which will serve as the band’s first live shows since 2012. The 13 new dates join a batch of recently announced festival appearances as the band’s complete tour schedule for 2016.
The new tour dates include two nights in New York City at Madison Square Garden and two nights at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A. Read the full list of newly announced dates below.
At the end of 2015, lead singer Thom Yorke debuted two new songs at a performance in Paris following a long hiatus. Around the same time, Yorke also released a theme for the James Bond film Spectre recorded by Radiohead that wound up not being used in the film in favor of Sam Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall.”
Fans have been expecting a new Radiohead album for quite some time now. Anticipation grew after the band set up a new company, Dawn Chorus LLP, last October, but the group has yet to follow up 2011’s The King of Limbs.
