One of the few remaining rock giants, Radiohead, will be making their fourth appearance in Israel with a show on July 19 at Park Hayarkon, it was officially announced on Tuesday.
Israel was instrumental in breaking the band in 1992 when their first single "Creep" became a big hit here before spreading to the rest of the world.
Fronted by enigmatic vocalist Thom Yorke, the band's debut album Pablo Honey
appeared in 1993, the year they performed in Israel for the first time. Guitarist Jonny Greenwood is married to the Israeli-born artist Sharona Katan and has collaborated with Israeli world music composer Shye Ben Tzur.
Critical and commercial favorites for over a decade, the British band branched out from its tuneful alternative rock to a more experimental, electronic sound in subsequent releases. Their most recent albums have seen them balance their various sides in a more centered approach.
Tickets to the show go on sale Wednesday morning at 9.00 am at eventim.co.il
