Radiohead hint at full tour after success of ‘surprise’ Glastonbury set

Philip Selway says the band are eager to play more shows

Radiohead have strongly hinted that they are planning a full tour after their surprise appearance on the Park Stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, drummer Philip Selway said that the band were currently discussing plans for more live shows.

Asked about whether off the back of their Glastonbury performance the band were looking to play more live shows, Selway replied by saying:

Absolutely that is what we are talking about that the moment, it felt exciting doing that and it felt like we had something else to offer musically. It just felt like a new lease of life in what we are doing, and we would like to see where that takes us.


Radiohead‘s live performances have been few and far between in recent years. Their Glastonbury performance was their first for over 18 months and their first in the UK since their headline double header at Reading And Leeds Festivals in 2009.

They last toured the UK in 2008, playing four large scale outdoor shows, including two at London‘s Victoria Park.
