After announcing a slew of U.S. tour dates in March and April running up to their headlining performance at Coachella, Radiohead has announced the support act for said U.S. dates. The legendary U.K. band will be joined by Dudu Tassa & the Kuwaitis, who have been described as a “’cross-cultural joint Jewish-Arabic project from Israel’ led by singer-songwriter Dudu Tassa.” The U.S. leg of the tour will get underway March 30 in Miami at American Airlines Arena and will conclude with the band’s performance at Coachella on April 21. You can find a full list of tour dates below.
As Pitchfork pointed out, Dudu Tassa & the Kuwaitis pay homage to the music of Daoud and Saleh al-Kuwaiti, two brothers who wrote popular Iraqi songs in the 1930s and 40s. Tassa is Daoud al-Kuwaiti’s grandson. In 2009, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood collaborated with Dudu Tassa on Tassa’s track "Eize Yom.” You can check it out below.
