In what could possibly be the most exciting music news to hit our shores in recent memory, Radiohead have announced a tour of Australian and New Zealand in 2012. This will be Radiohead’s first Australian tour in eight years, and the band’s first to New Zealand since 1998. With the release of their eighth album, The King of Limbs, in February 2011, Radiohead have steered away from their rock foundations to become more experimental with electronic sound and vocals.
Tickets are set to go on sale on Thursday, March 1, but a limited number have been made available via the band’s site. To get in before the rush click here (Update: these tickets have now sold out).
More pre-sale tickets will be available here at 12pm (EST) on Tuesday, February 27, or you can buy regular release tickets at Ticketek from 10am (EST) on Thursday.
