James Blake is supporting Radiohead!

At two shows in Italy this summer. Oliver Coates will play the band’s Manchester dates.

In a beautiful coming together of some of the world’s biggest sad lads, James Blake is set to support Radiohead at two Italian shows this summer.

The band’s tour for last year’s long-awaited ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ LP rolls on throughout the year, with a headline set at Glastonbury also penned in.

The band are playing two shows at Manchester Arena in June, their only UK headline shows planned so far. Support on these dates is set to come from Oliver Coates.

Additional support in Oslo, Stockholm and Dublin comes from Junun, a previous Jonny Greenwood collaborator, alongside the Rajasthan Express.
