Surely answering the prayers of fans across the globe, the Oxford-based boys of Radiohead will hit international highways and byways next year to unveil selections from mold-busting LP In Rainbows before live audiences. "We plan to tour next year, starting in May through to probably the end of the year. With lots of holidays in that period," Bryce Edge of Courtyard Management, the firm that manages the forward thinking quintet, told Billboard.com. "At the moment we are talking with our agents in North America and for the rest of the world, trying to get a schedule which works for the band and works financially."
Confirming the outing will be set in "slightly larger-scale venues," Edge also divulges frontman Thom Yorke's initial hesitancy at the prospect of a lengthy worldwide outing. "He likes to do shows, but the whole business of schlepping around the world is not top of his list of favorite things to do," said Edge before commenting on Yorke's concern with environmental issues and the effects of touring. "He really enjoys playing to the fans -- it's just the process of how to do that which is the pain in the neck (for Yorke). They're not road dogs. They never have been."

Jimmy Page has hinted at news that Led Zeppelin fans have been waiting for, namely that Led Zeppelin may record new music.
After their reunion concert at London's 02 Arena next month and John Paul Jones hasn't ruled out further plans for the band either.
The November 26th tribute concert for late Atlantic Records boss Ahmet Ertegun is where Page, Jones and Robert Plant will reunite on stage for the first time in two decades with Jason Bonham taking the place of his late father John.
When Page was asked by The Winnipeg Sun about the possibility of them recording new material he had this to say, "Look, I'd be really surprised if there wasn't -- you know, I mean I just know the way we are. We're musicians ... as we're playing we'll probably be coming up with all manner of things. And that will be fun. I mean, that's what it's all about.
"Let's do the 02 show, shall we? And then we'll speak to you afterward," he added.
Bassist John Paul Jones was similarly vague when he hinted that there may be a future for a reformed Led Zeppelin, but right now they remain focused on the 02 show. "Basically, we are concentrating on this show," Jones told the paper. "That's where all the energy is going. I mean, who knows, but one step at a time."
