Radiohead announce new 2018 tour dates

Radiohead have announced a string of 2018 tour dates in North America.

The band plan to play shows in July and August which include three huge nights at Madison Square Garden, stadium shows in Toronto and Montreal and dates in Chicago, Detroit, Columbus, Cincinatti, Pittsburgh, Boston, and Philadelphia.

The news come as an extension on the previously announced South American tour taking place during April which hosts a string of festivals.

Check out venue details on the W.A.S.T.E. website.

The news comes as the band announced plans to take some time away to focus on solo projects; Ed O’Brien announced his carnival inspired solo album, for example: “Without getting into it too much, going to Carnival in Rio was very inspiring. Rhythm and groove were a big part of it,” he explained. “I’m really enjoying it. It feels really right at the moment.”

The Radiohead man also confirmed he is playing his new signature Fender guitar on the album: “We had two of them going. Okumu is my lead guitarist and I didn’t expect him to play it and I gave him one at the beginning of the session and he played it all the way through the session. So it’s all over it so far. And the next five weeks, I’ve got a lot of guitar work to do and I think it’ll be my main axe.”
