Radiohead have revealed that they plan to play indoor venues during their world tour next year.

The band have confirmed plans to perform a string of concerts across the globe next year to promote their recent album The King of Limbs.

However, guitarist Ed O'Brien has promised fans that the group aim to perform the European leg of the tour at indoor venues.

Talking about initial ideas for the shows, O'Brien told BBC 6Music: "I think the important thing is that it's got to be a set in itself, it's got to work.

"Last time we went out, it felt very much like In Rainbows plus the greatest hits. And it's not going to be like that this time.

"I guess it's going to be predominantly from this record and the last record, and then see which songs fit around that."

The musician estimated that the run of concerts will probably happen between the end of February and November and confirmed that they will definitely play the UK and US.

He added: "Some of the shows will be outside, but the ones in Europe are gonna be inside and I think that's very much a reaction to when we played last time, we did all outside shows.

"We played in the height of summer and compromised our production. We'd like to give Andi, our lighting guy, a good crack of the whip of the production.

"Outdoor gigs can be great, but the sound can get diluted a bit. You miss the bass as well. Outside gigs can be the gigs, but you're at the mercy of the elements and I think the record demands a space where the music is loud, strong and detailed."

Radiohead recently streamed their new remix album TKOL RMX 1234567 in full online.
