Radiohead is Totally Playing Glendale

It was over a year ago that we speculated that Radiohead, and by extension Thom Yorke, must have vowed "to never step foot in The Grand Canyon State again."

Well, if there was such a edict issued by the lads from Oxford, they've totally called it off. Radiohead has announced a March, 15, 2012 date at Jobing.com Arena.

This marks the first time Radiohead has played Arizona since July of 1995, when Radiohead fansite Green Plastic Radiohead's extensive gigography says they played two gigs, July 15 at The Nile Theater in Mesa, and at some place called the Library Cafe two days later.

That second date seems a bit iffy -- but nonetheless, it's been awhile.

I had kind of accepted that the band just wasn't going to play anywhere in America beyond the coasts and big festivals, but the band's tour itinerary finds them hitting Florida, Texas, Colorado, Missouri, and Georgia.

Tickets go on sale for W.A.S.T.E. insiders at 9 AM (EST) on November 9, and on to the general public on November 12 through Ticketmaster.

Now, let's watch Thom dance. Dance for us, Thommy!

I remember Radiohead playing at The Nile. I don't think that they played at The Library Cafe on The Bends tour. All great places and memories! :)

How do we know that WASTE insider tickets go on sale at 9 am EST???

Nowhere that I've seen has a time posted for this at all ...

can anyone confirm the 9am EST for the presale? There's loads of people over at the w.a.s.t.e. blogs that would've loved to have had that number at midnight.

The Library Cafe was indeed a spendid place to catch live acts in Phoenix in the 90s, as the Mason Jar was in the 80s.  Scads of great bands have appeared at both venues over the years.One would think a New Times music editor would do one's homework. And methinks the 10 year old needs to grow up.  Great music fans are ageless.

You shouldn't be writing about music if you don't know what the Library Cafe was. Historic AZ venue

 Mason Jar was open in '90s and 2000s, as well, though, wasn't it?

Calm the fuck down, mega-nerd. This isn't the New York Times, chill out shit balls.Also, if you use the term "methinks" then you are a douche and a half, so well done.

John, please fill me in. I wasn't going to a lot of rock 'n' roll shows when I was 10. Were you at the show? There's some debate suggesting the second show was actually at The Blue Jamaican. Do you know the real scoop?
