I woke up to some interesting news in my twitterfeed this morning: Radiohead announced an initial set of US tour dates for 2012.

It looks like they’ll be fleshing this out into a larger U.S. tour soon, something that hasn’t happened since 2008. We will definitely keep an eye out for new announcements, but for now, here’s what’s confirmed:

Radiohead 2012 Tour Dates:

27th Miami, FL American Airlines Arena
29th Tampa, FL St. Pete Times Forum

1st Atlanta, GA Philips Arena
3rd Houston, TX Toyota Center
5th Dallas, TX American Airlines Center
7th Austin, TX Frank Erwin Center
9th St. Louis, MO Scottrade Center
11th Kansas City, MO Sprint Center
13th Broomfield, CO 1st Bank Center
15th Glendale, AZ Jobing.com Arena

The pre-sale through through w.a.s.t.e starts on Wednesday, November 9, with the public on-sale starting this Saturday, November 12 (except for Tampa FL, which is Nov. 19).

This should be another tough ticket to get, but at least they’re playing arenas that more appropriate for their size.
