Radiohead Nixes Brit Awards
Radiohead’s Thom Yorke is not boycotting the upcoming Brit Awards as it’s been widely reported. Although Yorke did express his disgust with attending last year’s Brits, telling The New York Post “I thought, that’s it. That’s the last time we ever go to anything like that.” The band will not be attending because of tour commitments in Australia and New Zealand. Radiohead have not committed to playing the Grammy Awards on February 25th although rumor has it that the band’s label, Capitol, and the Grammy organization are very eager for the nominees to attend and perform.
the radiohead tour video that was filmed by Grant Gee, the camera man, is scheduled for release in CD and Video stores March 24, 1998. this is not official so it might change.
also floating around the rumor cloud, radiohead’s upcoming US tour will begin on March 27, 1998 with bjork. i don’t know the location yet, so please don’t email me asking. once i know anymore info, i’ll post it here immediately. the band is currently touring japan and will be in australia in february.
MTV UK will be showing 4 hours of radiohead (in concert, videos, interviews, etc…) on february 7, 1998 at 7:30pm.
radiohead’s chart position on the billboard 200 improved again this week. they jumped from last week’s 76 to this week’s 70.
