Influential Modern Rock icons Radiohead have announced a slate of North American summer tour dates, including a July 25 stop at U.S. Bank Arena. It is only the second time the band has played Cincinnati; in 2012, the group performed at Riverbend on its tour for The King of Limbs. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.
Radiohead’s current tour is in support of its latest album, 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool. The band was announced as a semi-finalist for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s class of 2018, but… they had to get Dire Straits in there instead.
