Radiohead Breaks Detroit Boycott, Plans Palace Show
DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Think Radiohead will never play Detroit? Think again. The alternative band announced they’ll break their long streak of avoiding the Motor City with a performance June 11 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
It will be their first performance in the area in nearly 15 years. Tickets go on sale Saturday; prices are not yet known.
The Detroit News reported Radiohead’s last Detroit concert was Aug. 15, 1997, at the Fillmore Detroit. The band continued to tour after that, hitting cities as close by as Cleveland and Chicago — but not Detroit.
Did we do something to offend? The band stayed mum. But some pundits said they couldn’t find a venue the right size to suit, that they like to play outdoors but found DTE Energy Music Theatre too sponsor-driven.
This time around, Radiohead is supporting the album “The King of Limbs.”
