Thom Yorke signs up for this year's Bridge School Benefit Concert...

RADIOHEAD star THOM YORKE is to make a rare solo appearance at this year’s BRIDGE SCHOOL benefit concert in the US.

This year’s concerts take place at the Mountain View Shoreline Amphitheatre on October 26-27, and will be the 16th annual event.

The shows are aimed to raise funds for the non-profit school co-founded by Neil Young, which works with children with speech and physical difficulties.

MTV news reports that alongside Yorke, this year’s bill also includes Foo Fighters, [a][/a] and Neil Young, amongst others.

It is likely that at the shows, Yorke will take the opportunity to play new material from Radiohead‘s forthcoming, sixth album. The band are massive fans of Young, and have previously covered his classic ‘Cinnamon Girl at live shows.

The group have just come back from the US, where they recorded for two weeks with longtime producer Nigel Godrich.
