The rumors of Radiohead trying to get a headlining spot at Bonnaroo might be damn true if the following is correct. Anything coming out of Jim DeRogatis’ mouth is something that should be widely substantiated, but I’m still calling it a rumor until the actual dates are announced.

The band, which will release its seventh album later this year, hoped to perform in the new venue at the northern end of Grant Park on June 19 and 20, the tour dates it has earmarked for Chicago performances, according to sources close to the group.

They were actually trying to book Millennium Park but the bid got turned down. Read more about it here.
