Radiohead to play 'historic' one-hour episode of 'The Colbert Report,' two shows at NYC's Roseland


Comedy Central has announced that “show history” will be made on September 26 when Radiohead appear on a special one-hour episode of The Colbert Report.

The band will perform tracks from their recent King of Limbs CD as well as the song “The Daily Mail,” which they previously played at the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival in June. The Report will start, as usual, at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.

In a statement, Stephen Colbert said that he is looking forward to “meeting the Radioheads and leveraging their anti-corporate indie cred to raise brand awareness for my sponsors.” As previously announced, Radiohead will appear on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, two days before they visit Colbert.

Radiohead has also confirmed two shows at New York’s Roseland venue on September 28 and 29. Tickets will be available to purchase on Ticketmaster from 10 a.m. on September 26.

    Roseland is too small for them but it’s not like I can go to ny anyway.

  • Craig

    Not a fan of the Colbert Report but I guess now I have a reason to watch. Would’ve been better if they did Jon Stewart.

  • BRB

    Hell yeah! Getting tickets will be impossible though.

  • Ahhhh

    Announcing tickets a few days before the show. That’s so Radiohead!!!!


    I think you old fools think that it is cool to think radiohead is awesome, so you just say you like them, or make other comments in support. I am sorry to burst your bubbles, but RADIOHEAD SUCKS COMPLETELY!!! THE SINGER CANNOT SING!!! DUDE COULD NOT HOLD A TUNE IF HIS LIFE DEPENDED ON IT!!! IF THAT IS WHAT YOU THINK IS GOOD, YOU SHOULD HEAR MY DOGS DURING THUNDERSTORMS. I WOULD MAKE QUITE A GOOD LIVING WITH YOU WANNA DBAGS IN THE AUDIENCE!!! I MEAN COME ON!!! Clean out your ears, and listen for GODS sake!!! This is not a matter of debate. This is not a matter of taste. This is a matter of being able to hear!!! FYI, IT IS NOT COOL JUST TO SAY YOU LIKE SOMETHING BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING THEY LIKE THAT PARTICULAR THING!!! Have a real opinion based on your own beliefs. THAT IS WHAT IS COOL!!! This is a case of ‘The Emperor Having No Clothes,’ and all you people are praising him about his beautiful tailoring and asking where you can get the same outfits made!!! Totally Pathetic!!! Get a life!!! RADIOHEAD SUCKS!!! I thought both “performances” were skits!!! Honestly, I did! Bloody Awful!!!

    Really, how do you feel about the band? Granted, an acquired taste and not for all but true genius in my book.
