After the unfortunate stage collapse hours before a June 2012 Toronto Radiohead concert — which took one crewman’s life and cancelled the show — fans were certain the British band wouldn’t want to return to the city.
Now, six years later, Thom Yorke and crew are embarking on a North American tour, and so far, Toronto and Montreal are the only Canadian cities on the docket. (Take heart, west coasters: it’s possible the band will circle around and cover the west coast later in the year.)
After the band’s six South American dates in April, Radiohead is heading due north and starting off their North American tour in Chicago, Ill., hitting Montreal for two nights (July 16 and 17) before playing a two-night stand at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on July 19 and 20.
