Radiohead 2016

    Radiohead have announced a world tour in support of their upcoming, as-yet-unannounced ninth studio album.

    Stretching from May to October, the tour’s docket includes a mix of headlining shows and previously announced festival appearances, including Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, Montreal’s Osheaga, and Japan’s Summer Sonic. In the US, Radiohead will play two nights at both Madison Square Garden in New York City and Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium.

    According to Radiohead’s website, “these are all the headline shows that the band will play in 2016.” However, more festivals appearances are still to be announced. Among them will be Lollapalooza in Chicago and San Francisco’s Outside Lands, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the band’s plans.


    All of this comes as Radiohead gear up for the release their ninth studio album, the follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs. Back in October, the band’s members established a new company called Dawn Chorus LLP; they took similar actions months before releasing their prior two studio albums. A release date for the new album remains unconfirmed, though recent events do suggest its release could be imminent.
