Wow those arena names are annoying.

OMG, I'm going to travel with them! I'm going to see all the dates!

Actually, no I'm not. I could care less. These twats need to go away with Kanye and Jay-Z.

Look at all those days off between shows. That's how you tour in leisure. Unless those are built in 'added show" dates.

As long as Thom Yorke has a lazy eye, Radiohead will be a hit for hipsters.

Jobing.com Arena ftw

Radiohead walk to each of their shows to cut down on carbon emissions. Hence the scattered dates.

10:53 - Logistically, it's easier that way, given that the rigs have to travel distances between cities. Larger distances between each city down south, for the most part.

Thanks for ditching the west coast and the northeast.

Tampa>Mia
Houston>Dalas>Austin

not exactly Smokey and the Bandit time runs. There are days off between each of those dates. This is a great way to tour. Most bands touring in a foreign country can't afford to do this.

derigging doesn't take that much time

Posted by Captain Unicef Kevlar Face ESQ (!) | November 7, 2011 11:04 AM

They need the extra time in between shows to transport all that hummus.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 11:04 AM

you can't complain about them "ditching" the West Coast AND the Northeast.

plus they'll add dates to this.

Posted by Captain Unicef Kevlar Face ESQ (!) | November 7, 2011 11:07 AM

MSG may be hard to book in Mar/April with all that college basketball/NBA/Hockey so...they might do the Prudential Center or Izod Center.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 11:08 AM

10:59 Big bands typically avoid the north during the winter months, to avoid weather-related problems travelling from city to city, and just because it's just better to be in the warmer weather during that time of year. I'm sure they'll be in the northeast after March sometime.

Those venue names is exactly the kind of world David Foster Wallace was predicting in Infinite Jest.. except it's only 3% of the ridiculousness it will eventually become, come the year 2030 or so, when technology and corporations will reign and rename Earth among other things.

if any of you actually think they aren't going to add east/west coast dates, then you are legitimately fucking retarded.

Roseland shows were lackluster, not worth the $80. Unless they switch things up and drop that price, this tour will bite the big one.

How about just calling all those venues 1% Arena/Coliseum/Garden/Forum, etc.?

They need the extra time to roll the equipment on pallets using serial wooden logs, like they did when they built the pyramids. Yup, no global climate change from Radiohead I tell you. Oh, wait, they're using trucks and planes and buses? What a bunch of hypocrites! I bet they even eat beef. Global Polluters!

11:33 - I still haven't given up on the idea that no one should spend more than $40 to see a live band. But, I guess times have changed, and people are complacent and willing to throw money away.

more dates to come? significant in that this is their first arena tour no? wish they'd do multi nights in theatres/halls vs. the basketball arena route

rcmh would be sweet, great acoustics, beautiful room, big enough to have a fighting chance of getting a ticket. tough to puff down, but whatever. i'd prefer that to msg.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 12:53 PM

RCMH would still be too small to satisfy the demand. They'd have to play at least a week of dates for it not to be difficult to get tix through normal means, or expensive via scalpers.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 12:54 PM

doubt they will tour northeast early in the year - maybe in the fall and by then, there is a new place in town by then....the arena in brooklyn

MSG NYC 2012

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 1:17 PM

RCMH is approx 1/3 the capacity of MSG when it is fully seated, which is seldom for concerts. Phish is just about the only band I'm aware of that can fill that entire place and have it work with their stage setup.

They'll be at Coachella and Bonnaroo for shizzle.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 1:29 PM

1:29, Radiohead sold out two consecutive nights at MSG back in 2003. I'm sure they won't have a problem filling it this time either.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 1:33 PM

i'm sure they won't, either. the point i was trying to make is that it won't be at capacity if/when they do. they won't have seating behind the stage, i suspect. i'm figuring that's where the show(s) will be, but one can hope. i'll just be happy it's not at an outdoor festival again.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 1:43 PM

Every ticket scalper and their brother, just called 4 friends...

Good luck getting decent seats to those arenas.

give up and grow up..if you can wrap your mind-for an instant-around the fact that these are one-off musical performances, that concerts are ART, then you'd realize tickets should cost a LOT more than they generally do.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 3:26 PM

2:58 - You sound like you've been brainwashed. Companies like LiveNation and people like Bob Sillerman love people like you. Concerts are not art. Concerts are means for generating commerce.
The concert industry was going just fine before they started jacking up prices, and convincing morons like you that you're supposed to spend an arm and a leg on a concert ticket.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 3:28 PM

Before promoters and artists started jacking up prices, people would go see many more shows a year, and there was more of a live music rock n' roll culture. Now many people can only afford to go to a couple of shows during the course of a year, because the prices are ridiculous. Many bands don't play smaller markets anymore, because it's not financially feasible for them to mount big tours anymore (luckily we live in NY, where everyone plays..). The concert industry sucks, because morons like the guy @2:58 think it's normal to pay jacked up prices to see a show.

No thanks.

TKOL does not suck and it translates very well live, as a matter of opinion. You obviously didn't get in to the Roseland shows and are a tad bitter about it.

3:46, not sure about you, but most of the shows I go to have face values between $20-35. It's only the bigger arena shows that are more pricey.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 4:57 PM

4:57 - I get your point.. that you're cool because you don't like bands that are mainstream enough to play arenas.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 6:05 PM

6:05,

It's me, 4:57. Sorry, should have clarified that. I definitely like bands that play arenas (and thus go to arena shows on occasional). That being said, 80% of what I go to are shows at venues from Mercury Lounge - Roseland/T5 and prices range between $20-40.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 6:29 PM

^^same with me - normally go to smaller places so i have no issue paying up for bands that come around infrequently - besides, that's really how they make the money to support the staff they have built up - touring is where the money is - so what - its the way they make a living - plain and simple

Damn, no shows in Wyoming?

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 9:32 PM

7:18 - Everyone made a fine living back in the day when concert tickets were $25-30 in the arenas. Everyone got paid, and all was good. Some bands scalped their own tickets, but in general the prices were low, and people weren't getting gouged. But then people started getting greedy. Everyone wanted a larger percentage of the pie, so they just made the pie larger. $15 "convenience" fees from Ticketmaster. Why is a fee $15 for ticket to a show like Jay Z/Kanye, and only $5 for a show at Terminal 5? The same paper stock is used to print tickets to either show, so why would one cost more than the other? And if you're printing out the tickets at home, why should it cost $15 for that privilege?
And now, 9:32, a band like Radiohead probably wouldn't play Wyoming (I know you were kidding, but I'm making a point here...), because people in Wyoming can't afford to spend $80 a ticket plus $15 in fees.

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2011 10:32 PM

I wasn't sure where you were going there 10:32, but, ouch. Take that Wyoming apparently. Radiohead hates you.

3:17 - I have a great job, over 6 figures. But I know when I'm being gouged.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 6:50 AM

11:13 The point is.. most bigger bands only hit major cities now, because it's not financially feasible to play smaller markets anymore, because people in smaller markets can't afford the prices. Radiohead fans down south are lucky that they're actually going down there; some bands these days only play the northeast (lucky for us) and the west coast.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 6:57 AM

also everything costs more now...
$25 to $ 30 in the 90s is $45-$60 now.. its called inflation
that being said I do wonder what Yorke must think when he looks at his itinerary and just sees corporate arena after corporate arena..

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 7:36 AM

If it isn't about making money (Capitalism) then it doesn't matter if smaller markets or venues cannot pay more. But it is about money, of course. Music is a business and Radiohead are businessmen selling a product to ensure the highest profit margin for the least amount of effort expended.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 7:42 AM

I actually don't mind that artists charge more now. I would do the same thing; charge what people are willing to pay.
What annoys me is that people are still willing to pay gouged prices. If people refused to pay, the prices would go down.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2011 9:49 AM
