Radiohead News

According to Stereogum it looks like Grizzly Bear will be opening for Radiohead on a select few tour dates. The other slot has the Liars opening for Radiohead and the first part of the North American Tour.

No news of a Denver date yet, but I predict a Red Rocks date on their West Coast leg of the tour.

Also according to Filter Magazine:

Like previously reported, EMI is set to release a Radiohead greatest hits package to coincide with the band's upcoming spring tour.

Unlike the discography box set, The Best Of will be available in multiple formats to allow for maximum money making potential. A single disc version (containing 16 tracks), a double disc version (containing the first CD plus a second 13 track CD) and a 4xLP limited edition box set (containing both CDs and four vinyls) will be available overseas on June 2nd, with no US release date at the present time.
