    Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien spoke to the BBC about the band's future tour plans and he said the dudes are currently mapping out a routing for 2012.

    The band plans to tour on and off in the US and UK from the end of February until November of next year, visiting "the usual ports of call," according to the guitarist.

    The band would prefer to play indoor venues and to mix up the set list, with O'Brien saying, "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."
