It has been pointed out that the Buenos Aires show takes place on the same day as the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, which Radiohead are long-listed for.

Radiohead recently responded to their Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame nomination, saying that Dr Dre should be nominated instead.

Ed O’Brien said: “As a British band, it’s one of those things that it’s very lovely to be nominated, but we don’t quite culturally understand it. It’s a very American thing. Us Brits are very bad at celebrating ourselves.”

He added: “One of the things I’ve always loved about coming over to America is American bands you can always have a really good chat with and you could talk. With British bands, there was a lot of hostility. It’s in our DNA to be a little ambivalent with award ceremonies. We haven’t had great experiences. I would never want to disrespect anything because obviously some amazing artists have been nominated. But if I’m honest I don’t understand it. It’s just kind of a British person going, ‘Okay, thanks, what does this mean?’”
