Spain

No more tour dates

by Jonathan on April 10, 2002

RADIOHEAD have confirmed that they won?t be playing any live shows in the UK until 2003.

The group will play Spain and Portugal during July and August, but have no plans to extend the tour, according to a spokesperson for the band.
The shows are aimed at road-testing new material recorded in studio sessions booked to start later this month. The intention is to play to hardcore fans, rather than what they see would be a larger, potentially more apathetic festival audience. It’s something they‘ve done before prior to the release of ‘Kid A’ they played unusual venues such as amphitheatres across Europe.

More tour rumors

by Jonathan on February 12, 2002

We’ve just been told about a possible set of dates in Spain this July. The info comes from this site and it says (translated from Spanish):

“…the concerts would take place during three or four consecutive days in Salamanca Theater, a pretty hall with a capacity of 1000, ideal to create an intimate atmosphere of Radiohead’s music. Although it is not yet an official confirmation, it seems that the negotiations are very advanced.”

So, add this to the list of places, which also include Portugal and Brazil, Radiohead are rumored to be playing this year.

Vote Killerbear?

by Jonathan on May 31, 2001

Vote Killerbear? If you visit the city of Nottingham (UK) you may see little posters of the Radiohead bear with the words “Vote Killerbear”. They are apparently in a lot of locations as documented here. What are they for? Who put them up? Did the band have something to do with it? These are questions that we can’t answer. Maybe it has something to do with the upcoming elections on June 7.

The NME has given Amnesiac an 8 of 10 rating. {thanks to Chris}

The setlist and review for last night’s show in Verona, Italy is here.

Thom, Colin, and Jonny appeared on Mark and Lard yesterday live from Verona. Thom and Colin played Wheel of Misfortune in which Thom confessed that they had picked “The Tourist” for the encore in France only to discover that they couldn’t remember (talk about Amnesia!) the last chord to the the song! They discovered this about 2 minutes before they went on stage and couldn’t locate a copy of OK Computer so the song was ditched. You can listen to the Thom and Colin’s Wheel of Misfortune and the Yes No Game with Thom at the Mark and Lard Site. The full interview should be available Online soon. {thanks to Paul}

To hear Thom’s solo version of “Pyramid Song” from the same show, check out http://www.kornmuse.fr.st. Apparently Jonng was itching to play drums with a Yamaha Beatbox or something… 🙂 {thanks to Titof}
