Radiohead were on the longlist of potential 2018 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but the shortlist of confirmed acts have been announced and they won’t be joining the likes of Elvis, David Bowie, The Velvet Underground and Fleetwood Mac in the Hall.
Instead, the five inductees for 2018 are Nina Simone, The Cars, Bon Jovi, The Moody Blues and Dire Straits. Other nominated acts that failed to make the cut into the Hall for 2018 included Kate Bush, Depeche Mode and Rage Against The Machine.
Perhaps the band knew they weren’t going to be inducted though, as they scheduled a gig in Buenos Aires on the same night (14th April) as part of their upcoming South American tour, distancing themselves from the ceremony. As part of the run, they’ll also head to Santiago, Lima, Rio De Janeiro, Sao Paolo and Bogota.
Very recently, Thom Yorke has debuted a brand new track called ‘I’m A Very Rude Person’ at a solo live show in Los Angeles.
