Gather Around Now…

We finally have a confirmed tour date for this year! In a announcement made on their official website yesterday, Radiohead stated that they will take part in this year’s Meltdown Festival, presented by Scott Walker. The band will perform on July 1, 2000, at the Royal Festival Hall in London. There will be more shows around this time in Europe that will be announced in the near future.

Tickets go on sale on March 13, 2000. W.A.S.T.E. will be offering 500 tickets for purchase to W.A.S.T.E. members. More on this later.

You can read the announcement at the official Radiohead site.
