Radiohead start world tour in May ‘08:
Radiohead will embark on an international tour starting next spring. Although details are still sketchy, expect the band to play multiple markets, in sizeable venues.
“We plan to tour next year, starting in May through to probably the end of the year. With lots of holidays in that period,” says Bryce Edge of Courtyard Management, the firm that manages the band to Billboard.com.
“At the moment we are talking with our agents in North America and for the rest of the world, trying to get a schedule which works for the band and works financially. They toured last summer almost for creative reasons, definitely not for financial reasons. And I think they quite enjoyed it,” explains Edge. “The next set of touring will be slightly larger-scale venues.”
Frontman Thom Yorke is anything but a fan of international treks and, in the past, the singer has raised concerns over the effects of touring on climate change.
“He likes to do shows, but the whole business of schlepping around the world is not top of his list of favorite things to do. He really enjoys playing to the fans — it’s just the process of how to do that which is the pain in the neck (for Yorke). They’re not road dogs. They never have been.”
I missed them the last time through NYC - THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. If I have to... whatever I have to do - rape a nun, murder a homeless man, hug Ann Coulter - I will do it to insure I have tickets this time around.
