Radiohead’s first live shows since 2012 have been announced. The group will headline at Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, on 2-4 June, and at the OpenAir St Gallen festival in Switzerland, where they will play on Saturday 2 July.
Primavera has announced its other headliners for 2016: PJ Harvey and LCD Soundsystem. Among the other acts at the event will be Tame Impala, Suede, Sigur Rós, the Last Shadow Puppets, Animal Collective, Brian Wilson, Air and Kamasi Washington.
Radiohead have not played live since their last world tour ended on 17 November 2012, with a show at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. They are expected to release a new album soon. The most recent pointer to an imminent release was the discovery that the band had created a new company, Dawn Chorus LLP. They also created companies before the release of In Rainbows in 2007 and The King of Limbs in 2010.
