Thom Yorke announces new live shows

The Radiohead frontman returns with a string of new live dates this summer.

The new dates will see the iconic performer head out across Europe for a series of shows that will also feature special guest Oliver Coates.

The London-based cellist, composer and producer previously collaborated with Yorke and the London Contemporary Orchestra on Radiohead’s 2016 album release A Moon Shaped Pool.

Now they’re hitting the road together this May and June for a run of dates across Europe. The announcements of these new shows follow the news of Thom Yorke’s previously announced appearance at Barcelona’s Sonar Festival in June.

Best known as the Radiohead’s frontman, multi-instrumentalist Yorke released his debut solo album, The Eraser, in 2006. This was followed by Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, released in 2014. Over his career, Yorke has worked with musicians including Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and long-time collaborator Nigel Godrich, as well as artists such as Björk, Flying Lotus and PJ Harvey.

With Radiohead, he has released nine studio albums, including the acclaimed Ok Computer and In Rainbows.

For the new shows, Thom will be performing in a live mix with acclaimed producer Godrich and visual artist Tarik Barri and will play tracks from his solo albums.
