Radiohead singer/guitarist Thom Yorke may be gearing up for the release of his first solo album since 2014, as the famous rocker announced a full batch of North American tour dates for this fall on Monday morning. The upcoming solo tour will begin on Nov. 23 in Philadelphia and runs for a total of 18 performances before coming to an end on Dec. 22 following a gig in Las Vegas.
As per Monday’s announcement, the British musician will be joined on the run by Radiohead and RCHP producer Nigel Godrich and visual artist Tarik Barri, who accompanied Yorke on his European solo tour earlier this year. The tour will visit mostly major concert markets across the United States, including a pair of shows at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Denver’s Paramount Theatre and Detroit’s Masonic Temple Theatre, just to name a few. Tickets for select shows on the tour will be going on sale beginning this Friday (Aug. 17) at 10 a.m. local time and can be purchased by clicking here. Fans can get warmed up for the upcoming tour by watching one of Yorke's performances from his solo tour earlier this year in the video above.
As mentioned by Pitchfork, Yorke began leaving an assortment of breadcrumbs via his Twitter as potential hints for his first new solo project since 2014’s Tomorrow's Modern Boxes. During a solo show this past December, he also debuted a brand new song titled “I’m a Very Rude Person.” In addition to his recent performances, Yorke has helped score a pair of films that arrived in 2018 with “Why Can't We Get Along” and the horror remake “Suspiria.”
Radiohead just recently wrapped up their month-long North American arena tour earlier this month, which began back in early July an included multiple nights at Chicago’s United Center, as well as four gigs at New York’s Madison Square Garden before closing out with a pair of concerts in both Boston and Philadelphia. The tour continued to help promote the band’s highly anticipated 2016 studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool.
