Radiohead have detailed the first ten dates of their upcoming 2012 U.S. tour. Their first extensive road trip since 2008, the band will begin their travels on February 27th in Miami, with dates currently running through March 15th in Glendale, AZ. Oklahoma-based indie rockers Other Lives will serve as support for these dates.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning November 12th, with the exception of the February 29th date in Tampa, FL, which will go on sale November 19th. A W.A.S.T.E. fan-pre sale will take place on November 9th. There will be a four ticket per person limit.

Speaking recently with the BBC, Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien said the band plans to “hit the usual ports of call” between February and November, with most of the dates taking place in indoor venues in order to maintain the intimacy of their latest album, The King of Limbs. ”The record, which has a lot of detail in it, it needs to sonically be in a space where the music is loud, strong, and detailed.” O’Brien also added that the tour’s setlist will be comprised mostly of material from The King of Limbs and their 2008 album In Rainbows.

Check out the current itinerary below and stay tuned for additional touring updates.
