Radiohead announces the first leg of their first proper US tour since 2008.

The band have booked a run of stadium shows across the U.S., from Florida to Arizona, in February and March next year.

Ed O’Brien told BBC Radio 6 recently, “The last time we went out if felt very much like In Rainbows plus a greatest hits, and it’s not going to be like that this time.”

“It’s going to be predominantly this record and the last record, and then see which songs fit around that. I think the important thing is it’s got to be a set in itself; it’s got to work.”

Fanclub members can buy tickets from Wednesday 9 November from their site, and the general public can buy tickets through Ticketmaster from Saturday 12 November.

This bodes well for the rest of the world seeing the band on stage.
