Bjork (pictured) has pulled out of upcoming American dates with Radiohead because of staging and production difficulties.

The gigs, set for Canada and the East Coast of the USA next month, would have meant a lengthy wait between the two acts’ shows in order to dismantle Bjork’s stage set and set up Radiohead’s. Both camps, however, have stressed that the acts intend to tour together later, with stripped-down stage shows, though no dates have been confirmed.

Spiritualized have been slotted in to replace Bjork at the gigs; they are already scheduled to support Radiohead from the start of the US tour.
