Radiohead announce European tour dates

Hot on the heels of the announcement of their appearance at next year’s Glastonbury festival, Radiohead have added a number of European gigs – including two huge headlining shows in Manchester in July.

Tonight (October 31), the Oxford band expanded their forthcoming tour to include its first UK and Ireland headline dates.

Radiohead will play at the Manchester Arena on July 4 and July 5, while they will perform in Dublin at the 3 Arena on June 20.

In addition to those UK and Ireland dates, the band will also play Norway, Sweden and Italy in June.

See Radiohead’s current European tour dates for next summer below.

Tickets for the new gigs will go on sale on November 4 at 9am.

Earlier this year, after five years of silence, Radiohead released their new album, A Moon Shaped Pool.

Rumours that Thom Yorke and co would be headlining Glasto began to circulate on October 19, when the band’s logo appeared near the Pyramid stage.

The festival confirmed the news soon after, posting a picture of the logo on its official Twitter page.

“YES! Radiohead will be back at Worthy Farm and we really can’t wait,” wrote Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis on Instagram.

Speaking about Radiohead’s appearance, Eavis said, “I’ve grown up with Radiohead – and they’re about as good as it gets for me.

“They’re just in a league of their own aren’t they? Some of my happiest memories at the festival have been watching them play, from headlining in the rain 20 years ago when I was a teenager, to surprise sets in The Park and DJ’ing late night in Shangri-La.

“We are beyond excited that they’re finally coming back to the Pyramid, it’s incredibly special for everyone here.”

Check out a couple of tracks from the album below.
