After the extraordinary success of the 2019 tour, which ended in Italy with the highly acclaimed concert at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, THOM YORKE, the historic frontman of Radiohead, announces new dates in Europe and the United Kingdom between June and July 2020 for his Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, the live project that includes Yorke, Nigel Godrich and visual artist Tarik Barri.
The only show in Italy is in Milan, Thursday 9 July 2020, at the SNAI San Siro racetrack as part of the program for Milan Summer Festival. Tickets are available in advance in advance for exclusive members of My Live Nation from 10am on Thursday 17th October, while from 10am on Friday 18th October they will be on sale in all authorised circuits Ticketmaster.it (online) and Ticketone (online and points sales on the territory).
The dates in Europe and UK, 11 in all, of which there are 2 festivals, will be followed by new dates also added in the United States, where THOM YORKE is still busy with the last concerts of 2019 until the end of October. In Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, the composed trio from Yorke, Godrich and Barri stages the songs taken from Thom’s various solo musical projects. The program therefore ranges from The Eraser, the first trial dated 2006 and produced by Godrich, former producer of Radiohead, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes (2014), Amok released in 2013 by Atoms For Peace, Suspiria, soundtrack composed for the remake of the film Dario Argento curated by Luca Guadagnino of 2018, and of course by Anima, his latest publication, released on June 27th on the XL Recordings label, accompanied by a short film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and visible only on Netflix.
Both the album and the short, based on 3 of his songs, received enthusiastic criticism. The Telegraph called it a “dark dystopian rhapsody that actually invites you to dance”, the cultural pages of the Sunday Times dedicated the cover story to Thom Yorke, while NME praised the album as “a feverish dream artistically reproduced as a music album “. ANIMA, which among the 9 tracks includes various tracks offered live during the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes tour, is produced by Nigel Godrich and played entirely together with the London Contemporary Orchestra.
