Radiohead have confirmed that they will be touring throughout 2012, but have also revealed that their set list will mostly be comprised of material from their new album ‘The King Of Limbs’.
Speaking to BBC 6Music, guitarist Ed O’Brien confirmed that the band would be on the road for most of 2012, saying: “We’re finalising dates now, we’ll be on the road from the end of February to November and we’ll be playing in both the UK and US, the usual ports of call.”
Asked what the set would consist of, O’Brien replied: “It has to be a set in itself, last time we went out it was ‘In Rainbows’ and a greatest hits. It’s not going to be like that this time. It’s going to be predominately from this record and the last one and then we’ll see which songs fit around that.”
O’Brien also said that the band’s European tour would be entirely comprised of indoor shows, adding that the band felt their new songs demanded this.
Some of the shows will be outside, but the ones in Europe will be inside and I think that’s very much a reaction to when we played last time. We played in the height of summer and compromised our production. Outdoor gigs can be great, but the sound can get diluted, you’re at the mercy of the elements and I think the record demands a space where the music is loud, strong and detailed.
Radiohead released their new remix album ‘TKOL 1234567’ earlier this month.
