correction: bjork will be opening up for radiohead in toronto on april 12, not march 12. please adjust your day planners accordingly.

rumors are everywhere! the latest: a cleveland DJ announced on January 13 that radiohead would be on the lollapalooza 1998 bill. sheesh! also rumors of a washington d.c. and new york gig in april.

for all you folks in australia, MTV australia will be showing a special about the band on february 8. the festivities include a videography, a rockumentary, and a live concert special (probably last month’s Live at the 10 Spot.)

radiohead came away from this year’s NME awards with Best Album for OK COMPUTER and Best Radio One Evening Session. Thom thanked the people rather reluctantly from japan over the phone. [from radiohead-announce]

one last note: phil reportedly didn’t return to the band’s encore at the Fukuoka gig due to illness. we all hope that he is OK now.
