Proposed cities include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Santa Barbara, according to the unofficial Radiohead website www.followmearound.com.
A tour of the East Coast is anticipated later in the summer. The band have already confirmed their first European dates at the sister Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park festivals in Germany over the weekend of June 1-3.
