Radiohead Star Confirms Tour Plans

(Gibson) In an interview with BBC 6 Music Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien said that the band are finalizing their 2012 tour of the U.K. and U.S. O'Brien revealed that the trek will likely take the band from the end of February through November and hit "the usual ports of call."

Although there will be some shows at outdoor spaces, the tour will focus on indoor venues. The guitarist said that playing music from The King of Limbs (released earlier this year) "just doesn't feel right this time." He also said that the setlists won't just combine Radiohead hits with new album selections, but will be a bit different.

"I think the important thing is that it's got to be a set in itself, it's got to work," O'Brien said. "Last time we went out, it felt very much like In Rainbows plus the greatest hits. And it's not going to be like that this time. I guess it's going to be predominantly from this record and the last record, and then see which songs fit around that."
