After two years of touring with Radiohead in support of 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool, singer and songwriter Thom Yorke has announced a solo tour U.S. for this fall. It brings him to Philadelphia on November 23rd for a headlining gig at The Electric Factory. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 17th, at 10 a.m. More information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
It’s not immediately clear what this tour entails; Yorke’s last solo outing was Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes in 2014. Previously, he released The Eraser in 2006. He also teamed up with bassist Flea and producer Nigel Godrich on the Atoms for Peace project, which released one record in 2013. So…an assortment of all of those things? New material? Whatever the case, seeing the face of the band who just lit up the Wells Fargo Center for two sold out nights in such a smaller space will be a treat indeed.
(UPDATE 10:35 a.m. – Per Pitchfork, the tour is “a live electronic performance featuring Nigel Godrich and audiovisual artist and frequent collaborator Tarik Barri.” The Philadelphia show is the first date on the tour; the full schedule can be found below.)
The London-based cellist, composer, and producer Oliver Coates will open the show. Below, listen to a mix of Yorke’s non-Radiohead jams.
