Radiohead Will Tour In 2017, Announces Headlining Slots At Glastonbury And Open’er Festivals

first_imgAlternative rock icons Radiohead have hinted at touring in 2017, but the band hadn’t actually revealed any of their  plans. Today, however, the rumors have been confirmed, as the infamous U.K. festival Glastonbury announced that the seminal British band will perform at their festival in 2017. Radiohead will appear on the famous Pyramid Stage on Friday night.Radiohead have become somewhat synonymous with Glastonbury over the years. They have headlined the event twice before in 1997 and 2003, with both sets considered to be all-time classic Glastonbury performances. They also performed a secret set at the festival’s Park Stage in 2011 when road testing the material from their album The King Of Limbs. Thom Yorke has been known to pop up at the festival’s many smaller venues and cafes to perform DJ sets as well. The band clearly feel comfortable at Glastonbury, and it should be a triumphant return after their last performance on the Pyramid Stage fourteen years ago.To mark the announcement, Glastonbury had the Radiohead bear logo painted into the field in front of the Pyramid Stage, which you can see below.Radiohead also announced another festival appearance today, at the Open’er Festival in Gdynia, Poland. With two tour dates announced for 2017 already, and heavy rumors of an appearance at the 2017 edition of Coachella, Radiohead fans likely have a lot to look forward to in 2017.In honor of this awesome announcement, take a look at full videos of all three previous appearances by Radiohead at Glastonbury. First up, watch their headlining set from 1997, mere days after OK Computer was released. Next up, watch their triumphant return to the Pyramid Stage in 2003.
