Radiohead have announced their first concert in Israel for 17 years. The Oxford quintet (or sextet if you’re going to include Clive Deamer) will play Park HaYarkon in Tel Aviv on 19 July.
The concert is the latest in a string of 2017 dates as they continue to take A Moon Shaped Pool on tour. They have already announced a number of UK dates and headline slots at festivals including Glastonbury and Coachella.
It is well known among fans that Radiohead and Israel have history together. It was there that ‘Creep’ first became a hit when Yoav Kutner introduced it to national radio, after the single had flopped in the UK charts. Jonny Greenwood’s wife is also from the country.
Speaking of Greenwood, he has been a busy man lately. In the latest in a series of special shows from the guitarist, he took over Manchester's Albert Hall to perform selections from his series of film scores, including Inherent Vice, There Will Be Blood and others.
There are still a few Radiohead tickets kicking around for sale. You can get your mits on them here.
