Thom Yorke Announces December Solo Show In Hollywood
Thom Yorke announced Monday a short solo tour that will make a stop at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood on December 12th. Tickets go on pre-sale October 5, with general public tickets released on October 6. The shows will feature a live mix with Nigel Godrich and visual art from Tarik Barri, and will feature Yorke playing from his solo material.
The tour also includes a stop at the Fox Theater in Oakland on December 14, and Yorke will make an appearance at the Day for Night Festival in Houston, TX, from December 15 to17.
Radiohead wrapped up its tour behind A Moon Shaped Pool back in July, with a controversial concert in Tel Aviv, Israel. In an interview with BBC Two, guitarist Ed O'Brien said the band plans to have a "little tour" in 2018 but otherwise will focus on individual projects.
The last time Yorke played near L.A. was when Radiohead performed at Coachella earlier this year—the show was marred with major sound issues. Before that, the band played two shows at the Shrine last August.
