After the announcement of a world tour, and fresh off the back of their King Of Limbs tour, Radiohead are now rumoured to be touring Australia and New Zealand in November this year. After years of speculation of Big Day Out appearances and Splendour in the Grass headlining slots, it may finally be here.
Update – 27/02/2012: Radiohead Confirm November Australian Tour Dates
It all started when New Zealand born psychedelic-pop musician Connan Mockasin tweeted stating that he wouldn’t be coming home soon, but would be with Radiohead in November; “I won’t be coming home for camp but will be with Radiohead later in the year”.
This was also reinforced by New Zealand radio-show host Charlotte Ryan of 95bFM who said that an industry insider had confirmed Radiohead’s November appearance in New Zealand.
Radiohead, in a recent interview, said that their 2012 world tour would consist mainly of songs from their recent release The King of Limbs instead of a ‘greatest hits’ type tour, which was their last big tour.
Radiohead also have dates booked up until late September in New York, playing the Roseland Ballroom on the 28th and 29th, however there is a sizable gap between their July date in Taipei and New York date.
This remains to be confirmed.
