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

Radiohead

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.
