Radiohead have posted their rescheduled European tour dates on their website. The shows were originally scheduled from June 30th to July 9th in Switzerland, Italy and Germany but are now set for September 20th to 30th, with all original tickets still valid for the new dates.

Radiohead was forced to reschedule the dates after their stage collapsed in Toronto before their set, killing their drum tech and injuring three more crew members. The accident destroyed much of their live setup. The band's touring company is now being investigated by the Canadian Ministry of Labour.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
