Radiohead confirm their first festival appearance of 2012

Band announce their first outdoor gig of next summer

Radiohead have announced their first festival appearance of next summer.

The band, who have already confirmed a 10-date North American tour for February 2012 and five shows across Europe for June and July, will headline Portugal’s Optimus Alive festival, which is set to take place between July 12 – 15 next year in Lisbon.

Radiohead released their latest studio album ‘The King Of Limbs’ earlier this year and are set to tour the world throughout 2012, with live dates beginning in late February and ending in November.

The band are expected to announce UK and more European dates in the coming weeks, but are yet to confirm when this will be.

Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has previously indicated that the band’s live set on their 2012 tour will be largely drawn from ‘The King Of Limbs’, as opposed to the greatest hits set that the band played on their last world tour.
