Well, whatcha know, Radiohead's In Rainbows, which hit stores on New Year's Day, sits atop the Billboard charts nearly three months after the band offered the album as a pay-what-you-want digital download via their Web site.

Today we have confirmation of the cities (albeit neither venues nor dates) that our favorite Glaswegians Englishmen will visit this summer. California stops include Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Diego, and San Francisco:

The first leg will come prior to the band's summer European jaunt, which begins June 6 in Dublin, while the second leg will start after the European dates end July 8 in Berlin. -- Billboard

We're hoping the Radiohead splits up its Southern California shows between the early and late summer North American stops so we can get a proper double dose of 'head. Stay tuned for dates and venues.

Watch Radiohead's New Year's Eve "Scotch Mist" performance of In Rainbows' first single, "Jigsaw Falls Into Place," after the jump.
