Radiohead: North American Tour 2008

from pitchforkmedia:

Radiohead (Sorta) Announce North American Tour!
In Rainbows tops U.S., UK charts

There are three essential components to any respectable Pitchfork News tour story-- dates, cities, and venues-- but when your band is called Radiohead, you can get away with announcing them one at a time.

Today Radiohead confirmed that they are indeed coming to North America in the near future, and provided folks with a handy list of just which cities they'll visit. No dates, no venues, just cities. Did yours make the cut? Have a look (arranged alphabetically):

Atlanta
Boston
Charlotte
Chicago
Cleveland
Dallas
Houston
Indianapolis
Los Angeles
Miami
Montreal
New York
Philadelphia
San Diego
San Francisco
Santa Barbara
Seattle
St. Louis
Tampa
Toronto
Vancouver
Washington, DC

The cities listed above will be graced by the men of Radiohead in two waves, the first popping off before that oft-reported European jaunt (which begins June 6), and the second taking place sometime after said jaunt ends (on July 8).

As the guys explained on Dead Air Space late last month, they've been working with environmental group Best Foot Forward to reduce their carbon emissions on this forthcoming tour, which may go some to explain why it's taking them a minute to put it all together. They also provided some pointers on how YOU can help. Observe:

* If average car occupancy increased from 2.2 to 3, the whole tour's overall CO2 output would be reduced by 22%.
* Halving fans flying would reduce overall CO2 consumption by 5%
* And if 10% of car users travelled by bus it would reduce CO2 emissions by 7%

And if I may add my own suggestion: Bikes!

Radiohead's In Rainbows, meanwhile, presently sits atop the Billboard 200 album charts. After a street date violation resulted in a paltry first "week" showing, Thom and the boys moved 122,000 units in their second week, good enough for a #1. In Rainbows also reigned over the UK charts in its first week of release.

Still hot on the Radiohead newswire: Amplive, under pressure from Radiohead's publishers, has agreed to abandon his In Rainbows remix project for the time being; the "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" single blows up UK shelves January 14; Thom Yorke's rolling out some remixes; and the band so did not demand a bunch of advance money from former label EMI. So there.

Finally, according to Uncut.com (via ateaseweb), Radiohead will perform on the 200th episode of "Later... With Jools Holland", which hits BBC Two February 1. Also performing: Cat Power, Feist, and Dionne Warwick.

Hopefully the prices are reasonable. Off-topic, but I am really hoping for a rumored Tom Waits tour.

No Detroit.

I guess getting Tom Waits and Bjork last year will have to tide me over. Maybe Cleveland or Chicago though.

Like usual, no Kansas City. I'm not surprised.

I'll have to keep an eye on St Louis....

No Minneapolis!

Looks like a road-trip to the Windy City.

Same here; plus, depending upon the dates, a trip somewhere out on the West Coast.

I think this is the fist time that I'll be skipping a Radiohead tour since the Bends. The last show I saw at the Hollywood Bowl irked me and was a real pain in the ass - Radiohead was great, I just wanted to kill everyone else...

It was just a pain in the ass - maybe if I hadn't seen them so many times before (not to mention, at much smaller venues, being no more than 25-feet from the stage), I wouldn't mind so much. But with their rise in popularity, going to their shows over the years has been nothing but diminishing returns.

I was there for the show in '03. Drove all the way down from OKC. Definitely worth it--but it's nice having them a little closer to home this time.
