British alt-rock legends Radiohead have announced a 2018 North American tour that will bring them to Philadelphia for two nights at the Wells Fargo Center this summer.
The “Creep” hitmakers are scheduled to perform July 31 and August 1 at the Wells Fargo Center — the final dates on the tour. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 23 at noon via the Wells Fargo Center website, or by phone at 1-800-298-4200. A release notes that tickets will be delivered to guests digitally on the day of the show.
The upcoming dates represent a rare opportunity for Philly fans to catch Radiohead live. The band last played in the area in June 2012, when they performed at the then-Susquehanna Bank Center, now BB&T Pavilion, as part of their King of Limbs tour. Singer Thom Yorke’s Atoms for Peace, a supergroup with R.E.M. drummer Joey Waronker and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, last came to town in 2013.
Since then, though, local fans have had to travel to major festivals like Chicago’s Lollapalooza or venues like New York City’s Madison Square Garden to see a Radiohead gig.
The band will tour behind 2016’s A Moon-Shaped Pool, their most recent studio release. In mid-2017, Radiohead reissued their classic 1997 album OK Computer as OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017, which includes B-sides and previously unreleased songs.
In addition to the stop here in Philadelphia, Radiohead’s 16-date tour will take the group to cities including Boston, Pittsburgh, and New York. The full list of North American tour dates is below:
