Radiohead’s side project The Smile hits the tour trail 2024

Here’s everything you need to know about Radiohead’s side project, The Smile, their latest album release and how to get tickets for the tour in March 2024.

While many of us were getting our hands dirty with (still unfinished) home-reno projects, Radiohead’s lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and singer Thom Yorke started a lockdown project that excited many: The Smile.

Three years and one debut album later, the Radioheaders and jazz drummer Tom Skinner (Sons of Kemet) have released their second LP, Wall of Eyes, which already has fans calling it Greenwood’s best project since In Rainbows.

From the very first notes of Wall of Eyes, it’s evident that Greenwood’s innovative compositions and Yorke’s haunting vocals have reached new heights of creativity and intensity. Recorded at the infamous Abbey Road Studio, The Smile’s new album is said to have so-called ‘Beatles-inspired’ melodies, namely within Friend of a Friend – although we’re not sure how true this is. But there’s no denying the album’s dynamic range and raw energy. It showcases the band’s unparalleled ability to captivate audiences with their diverse sonic palette.

Their 2024 tour stretches from spring into summer, so there’s plenty of time to picture yourself amidst a sea of fellow music lovers, swept up in the euphoria of their unique sound. NME named their 2022 performance in New York a  ‘dazzling spectacle’ and it has received raving reviews far and wide. Trust us. This tour is not one to miss.

The Smile tour dates in March 2024:

07  – Dublin, 3Arena
10 – London, Eventim Apollo
13 – Copenhagen, K.B. Hallen
15 – Brussels, Forest National
16 – Amsterdam, AFAS Live
18 – Brighton, Brighton Centre
19 – Manchester, O2 Apollo
20 – Glasgow, SEC Armadillo
22 – Birmingham, O2 Academy
23 – London, Alexandra Palace

Kicking off in Dublin in March, there are just a few weeks to go until the launch of their European tour, so  the time to secure your spot and witness the spectacle is now. The prospect of experiencing the ground-breaking Walls of Eyes tracks live in the flesh is exhilarating. Following excessive demand, The Smile has announced an extra London date for their tour, so grab them while you can!

Whether you’re a long-time Radiohead fan or new to The Smile’s inventive sound, this promises to be an unforgettable experience.

Grab your tickets, get that album on repeat and prepare to be blown away by Yorke’s ethereal vocals.
