Radiohead

Britain’s Radiohead has confirmed a 10-city summer 2018 North American tour, beginning July 7 in Chicago and wrapping up August 1 in Philadelphia.

The new U.S. and Canada shows, the band’s first North American appearances since spring 2017, are their latest in support of the 2016 album A Moon Shaped Pool, which peaked at #3 in the U.S. Billboard album chart. The U.S. dates follow a handful of South American shows in April.

Tickets go on sale beginning Feb. 23. Tickets are available here and here.

Despite the absence of new material, Radiohead’s individual members have been keeping themselves busy when not on the road. Guitarist Jonny Greenwood composed the music for last year’s hit film Phantom Thread and drummer Philip Selway provided music to the film Let Me Go.

Radiohead was also involved in the 20th anniversary of the reissue of OK Computer, arguably their most popular and influential album to date.

The band made news in 2016 by refusing at first to release the entire A Moon Shaped Pool album on the Spotify streaming service, opting instead to release only two songs, “Burn the Witch” and “Daydreaming.” At the time, Radiohead was feuding with Spotify over the royalty rates it pays artists, with singer Thom Yorke stating that the company was “the last desperate fart of a dying corpse. I feel like as musicians we need to fight the Spotify thing,” he said at the time. “I feel that in some ways what’s happening in the mainstream is the last gasp of the old industry. Once that does finally die, which it will, something else will happen.”

The entire album was eventually released and is still available for streaming. Read more about the Spotify-Radiohead feud here.
