The performances will take place in smaller than usual venues, and will feature appropriately scaled down staging and lighting design, creating a suitably intimate environment for the first ever airings of several new songs.

The theatre / amphitheatre run begins with a two-night run June 1 in Philadelphia. In fact, all of the band’s tour stops are two-nighters with the exception of the June 17 set at .

Set lists for the shows will draw heavily on the newer material the band has been working on over the past months.

The U.S. dates will be preceded by a similar tour of Europe and the U.K., followed by a string of U.K. / Europe festival dates, including the already sold out V festival Aug. 19 & 20, with others TBA.

There are no plans for a Radiohead album release any time in 2006.
