Paris saw the performances of many famous musicians of different genres, so it’s rather difficult to surprise a spoiled Parisian public. However, the arrival of a next big star to the city causes quite a stir certainly. In 2012 dozens of popular singers and bands will be performing in Paris, and the legendary British rock band Radiohead, whose concert will be held on October 12 at the Palais des Sports in Bercy, stands out.
Radiohead’s history has begun in 1985 and the debut single «Creep» was released only in 1992. True, this creation of the musicians got a deserved recognition a year later – after release of their full album «Pablo Honey». In the middle of 1990s Radiohead was popular not only in British Isles – the band already had millions of fans around the world.
Socially oriented lyrics, unconventional and original in its sounding music made Radiohead one of the leaders of a those years popular style – Britpop. In 2005 the legendary music magazine The Rolling Stone has put the British band at the 73rd position of its ranking of the greatest musicians of all time.
Radiohead has finished the first part of their world concert tour recently with a performance in Glendale (Arizona, USA). Already on April 9 the band will resume live performances, and European cities wait their concerts in autumn.
Tickets for the concert of Radiohead in Paris are already on sale, price – 140 – 250 Euro.
