[artist id="1123"]Radiohead[/artist] have announced dates for their upcoming U.S. tour, their first Stateside trek in nearly four years.
Kicking off on February 27 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, the first leg of shows spans the South (and, uh, Colorado and Missouri too), hitting cities like Atlanta, Houston and Dallas before coming to a close on March 15 at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Oklahoma indie rockers Other Lives will open, and a ticket pre-sale begins Wednesday through Radiohead’s W.A.S.T.E. site. General on-sale for most dates starts on Friday, with a four-ticket-per-person limit. For more information, check out the band’s official site.
It’s not clear whether the dates represent the entirety of Radiohead’s U.S. tour, or if more shows will be announced in the coming weeks … though, on their Dead Air Space blog, the band seems to hint that there’s more on tap in 2012, writing, “We are happy to announce the first part of some live shows we will be doing next year, more to follow.”
A spokesperson for the band could not be reached for comment on the matter by press time.
Although they’ve played several one-off shows in the States in recent years (in addition to frontman Thom Yorke touring with his Atoms for Peace project), Radiohead’s last full-scale U.S. tour wrapped in August 2008, when they were supporting the In Rainbows album. In February of this year, they released The King of Limbs and in September, they played a pair of surprise shows at New York’s Roseland Ballroom in support of the album.
