UPDATE: Radiohead coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa
ATTENTION EVERYONE: THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
RADIOHEAD IS COMING TO TAMPA.
YOU HEARD US.
Sorry we had to go all-caps there for a second, but, seriously you guys, this is a watershed moment in history. No, we're not exaggerating, because -- are you ready for this? -- Radiohead is scheduled to play the St. Pete Times Forum/Tampa Bay Times Forum on LEAP DAY, Feb. 29. How perfectly weird is that?
According to Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, Other Lives will open the show. Tickets will go onsale to the public Nov. 19 via Ticketmaster, according to Radiohead's website (though you can get them Nov. 9 through the band's W.A.S.T.E. fan club).
***UPDATE*** The St. Pete Times Forum has announced that tickets will be $45-$69, and will go onsale at noon Saturday (11/19). Click here for details.
The MOST IMPORTANT ALTERNATIVE ROCK BAND IN THE HISTORY OF LIKE EVER is touring behind their latest album, The King of Limbs, and we hope you liked it, because, as guitarist Ed O'Brien told BBC 6 Music recently:
I think the important thing is that it’s got to be a set in itself, it’s got to work. Last time we went out, it felt very much like In Rainbows plus the greatest hits. And it’s not going to be like that this time. I guess it’s going to be predominantly from this record and the last record, and then see which songs fit around that.
Who cares what they play? THIS IS HAPPENING. We are SO amped.
