Radiohead Announce First Concerts in Four Years


Story by Charles Ken

The guys of Radiohead are back

Here’s some good news for Radiohead fans. The Thom Yorke-fronted outfit is set to perform its first live shows in four years. The band has booked three European festival headlining gigs for this year: Spain’s Primavera Sound, Portugal’s Nos Alive and Switzerland’s OpenAir St. Gallen.

Primavera Sound will take place June 1 through 5 and also feature sets from LCD Soundsystem, the Last Shadow Puppets, Tame Impala and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. OpenAir St. Gallen will take place from June 30 to July 3, and Nos Alive will happen July 7 through 9.

The last time Radiohead were on the road was back in 2012 to promote their 2011 album, “The King of Limbs.” The group is also writing and recording a follow-up to “The King of Limbs,” but there’s no word on how far along they are with the new release. Radiohead did unleash a new song called “Spectre” a few weeks ago, which was originally written to be in contention to be the theme song of the James Bond flick, also called “Spectre.”
