Radiohead is giving fans reason to celebrate this week with their announcement of an official 2012 U.S tour!
Making their first stop on February 27th at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, this highly exclusive and ultra-amazing band will rock what may be some of the most anticipated concerts of the year. Led by the great Thom Yorke, the band will set sail in support of their eighth album, “The King of Limbs.”
Whether they’re making music or touring, Radiohead definitely knows how to heighten our excitement, allowing for a lengthy period of absence between creative projects. The band’s last full-scale statewide tour closed in August of 2008, leaving a heavy four-year hiatus, which added more than enough fuel to their fans’ gusto.
Selling more than 200,000 copies since its February release, “The King of Limbs” adds to their already extensive repertoire of breakthrough music. The tour will feature indie-rockers, Other Lives, who’ve already made a mark touring with Bon Iver. Their haunting and ethereal sound is sure to compliment the unconventionally innovative feel Radiohead will bring to this tour.
With a limited amount of cities listed on their site as of today, it’s still too early to regard their tour dates as concrete, especially considering major cities like Los Angeles and New York have yet to make the bill. General tickets for the shows will go on sale this Saturday, while SUPERGOODMUSIC waits for Radiohead to announce more dates SOON.
