Coming off a hugely successful U.S. tour, one would think that Radiohead would settle down and take a break ... but not the energetic band from Oxford, England. Not only did they perform on "Late Show With David Letterman" Friday night, but they are now on their way back to the U.K. to start a tour there.
Kicking off the English stint, Radiohead will treat members of their fan club to a special, secret show Sept. 3 at the London club Astoria, according to the British music weekly NME. Ed O'Brien, the band's guitarist, told NME that this show will be totally unlike any other show they've played in the past, because they'll be able to be as obscure as they want. Their set will highlight mostly B-sides, including "Meeting in the Aisle," an instrumental on the flipside of "Karma Police." O'Brien said that while this show could fall back on them, at least they'll be among friends.
Radiohead will tour Japan in January, and since they've been writing material while on tour in the U.S., they then plan to head back into the studio to work on their fourth album.
