It will follow up on a smaller, sold-out tour of the U.K. and Ireland in May and June plus European shows in July. The act's label, Parlophone, would not confirm the reports. But hinting that there may be some truth behind the speculation, a spokesperson for Radiohead's management, Courtyard Management, tells Billboard.com they will not comment "until the official announcement is made."
Next month's tour will largely visit small theaters before the band performs at a number of European festivals, including the June 28 headline spot at the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival. So far, the group's lone North American date will come June 7 at the inaugural Field Day Festival in Calverton, Long Island, N.Y.
The band's new single, "There There," was made available Monday (April 14) to U.K. radio outlet and will be released May 26 commercially by Parlophone. Radiohead's sixth studio album, "Hail to the Thief," arrives June 9 in the U.K. and a day later in North America via Capitol.
