Radiohead are planning to host a party to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee during their US tour, according to a tour insider.

The Oxford band are currently touring the East Coast of the US in support of their latest album 'The King Of Limbs', but don't plan to let that get in the way of them celebrating the Queen's 60th anniversary of getting her crown.

According to BBC 6Music's Steve Lamacq, the band's head of security Colin has "packed numerous Union Jack and Jubilee tableware" and is "planning a Jubilee party in Washington DC at the weekend".

Radiohead will tour the UK in the autumn, playing their first UK dates in over three years.

The band first play a show at Manchester's Evening News Arena on October 6 before playing two shows at London's O2 Arena on October 8 and 9. They will then undertake a full European tour. Caribou will provide support on all dates.

They have also booked assorted European shows and festival appearances throughout the summer, including slots at Fuji Rock Festival and Bilbao BBK Live festival.

Radiohead will play:

Manchester Evening News Arena (October 6)
London O2 Arena (8, 9)
