Radiohead singer Thom Yorke has confirmed an appearance at a Green Party benefit later this year.
Lead singer with Radiohead, Thom Yorke rarely steps away from the group. Releasing his solo album ‘The Eraser’ in 2005 the singer performed only a handful of shows before retiring from the limelight.
Since then, Thom Yorke has re-activated his solo career only rarely. Performing a surprise afternoon set at Latitude festival last year, the singer recently formed a new group to play shows in Los Angeles.
With Red Hot Chili Peppers star Flea on bass the shows were an all star affair. With Radiohead working on a new album, Thom Yorke’s solo appearances have surprisingly increased.
Now the singer is set to step out on his own to perform at a Green Party benefit show in Cambridge. Thom Yorke is a noted campaigner for green causes, with Radiohead performing carbon neutral tours.
The singer even travelled to Copenhagen to participate in a green conference, and left fuming at the ineptitude of Western leaders in agreeing a new approach to the crisis caused by climate change.
Speaking on his blog, Thom Yorke claimed: “Now normally I wouldn’t get involved in politics like this… But let’s face it, it ain’t Labour or the Tories is it?!?”
Tickets for the upcoming show go on sale today (February 11th) at 12pm.
