Four years after the overwhelming success – 36 thousand tickets sold in a few days – of their live shows in Milan, Radiohead will visit Italy again, this time as the first stop of his European tour and decided to please the Italian fans with four concerts in some of the most beautiful cities of our country. Radiohead have rewarded this time the Italian public: in fact, Italywill be the country where the band will make more stops. The first will be Saturday, June 30 in Rome at the ‘Ippodromo Capannelle (as a part of the Rock in Roma Festival).
In a career that spans 8 albums and nearly 20 years of outstanding music-making Radiohead has fused alternative rock art rock, electronic to punk and psychedelic pop, becoming one of the most influential bands – for critics, musicians and audience – in recent decades. With electronic rhythms, especially the voice of Thom Yorke and visionary lyrics, the band of Oxford has created a soundtrack for our age, producing political texts, and often openly siding on the side of protest.
The band has often made anti-commercial choices, forcing rapid changes to an already full of sound experimental details: This did not prevent them, however, to sell more than 25 million records, and collect prizes and awards, including 3 Grammy Awards, Ivor Novello 1 , and 3 Q Awards.
