RH via satellite

From Chart Attack:
Once again Radiohead is breaking new ground. In anticipation of their sixth studio album, Hail To The Thief, Radiohead has found a new way to give their fans a taste of the album before its actual release date. Thom Yorke and Co. will be playing a concert on MTV2 in New York that will air (via satellite) in Famous Players theatres across Canada on Tuesday June 5. This will allow the band to reach out to many fans that might not have seen the band in concert and allows the viewers to get a taste of the new material as well. Despite Radiohead’s immense popularity this will be the only full concert launch that the band will do.
In past years, Radiohead held listening parties at Famous Players theatres for their albums Amnesiac and Kid A. This new venture will allow the fans to not only to hear the new album but also to get the live experience. Although the theatre will be the only way to see the band live in Canada, Radiohead will do a short tour of the U.K. and Ireland which begins on May 17 in Dublin.
Tickets for the satellite broadcast will be available on May 9 at all of the participating theatres? box offices and also online through the Famous Players website. Here?s a list of confirmed dates for the live broadcast:
