Radiohead reschedule cancelled shows

Radiohead have rescheduled various European shows, cancelled after their drum tech was killed when a staging construction collapsed ahead of a planned concert in Toronto earlier this month.

As previously reported, the band told fans that a number of shows would have to be postponed, partly so that they and their team could recover from the loss of drum tech Scott Johnson, and partly so lighting equipment destroyed in the stage collapse could be replaced. The band’s summer tour will resume in France on 10 Jul, while cancelled shows have now been rescheduled for late September.

Alongside a note on the band’s website announcing the new dates, Radiohead drummer Phil Selway told fans: “Thanks to all of you who have sent messages of support over these past couple of weeks. Scott has touched many people’s lives and all your sentiments are testament to this. Our thoughts and love remain with Scott’s family”.
