Radiohead 2008 Tour Tidbits Emerge

When Jonny Greenwood spoke to a couple press outlets on the day of In Rainbows' digital release, he sent the world's hearts racing with but a sentence, one which disclosed that Radiohead plan to tour in 2008.

Radiohead's publicist has confirmed that this is indeed the plan, and, adding more fuel to the fires of anticipation, today spoke with Radiohead's management, who offered a few more details on the travel plans in progress.

"We plan to tour next year, starting in May through to probably the end of the year. With lots of holidays in that period," Courtyard Management rep Bryce Edge told Um, save the, er, dates!

"At the moment we are talking with our agents in North America and for the rest of the world, trying to get a schedule which works for the band and works financially."

Expect larger venues than those Radiohead played back in 2006. Also don't be surprised if you detect a trace or two of reluctance in Thom Yorke's visage onstage. "He likes to do shows, but the whole business of schlepping around the world is not top of his list of favorite things to do. He really enjoys playing to the fans-- it's just the process of how to do that which is the pain in the neck.

Added Edge: "They're not road dogs. They never have been."

Edge also claimed rumors that Radiohead had moved 1.2 million digital copies of In Rainbows were "exaggerated" (the data has not yet been analyzed), but suggested folks may have paid an average of £4 (roughly $8.18) per copy. Radiohead may not be road dogs, but they are cash cows.
