Not sure why, but fireworks always come to mind when imagining Radiohead. It could be the way the end of "Let Down," fromOK Computer
, sounds like scattering and streaming embers.
Anyway, the point is: the fireworks are coming to Dallas. According to their website, Radiohead will be at the American Airlines Center on March 5, 2012.

And, from the same post, don't expect a greatest hits set list:

I think the important thing is that it's got to be a set in itself, it's got to work. Last time we went out, it felt very much like In Rainbows plus the greatest hits. And it's not going to be like that this time. I guess it's going to be predominantly from this record and the last record, and then see which songs fit around that.
The tickets go on sale on November 9. If you've ever tried to buy Radiohead tickets, you know they disappear sooner than you can imagine in your wildest dreams. Jesus has trouble buying to tickets to Radiohead (He also hates Ticketmater convenience fees and waiting times).
So, there it is. Go forth and Radiohead on November 9.
Update, November 9: Looks like tickets sold out at sneeze speed. According to Ticketmaster, general sale's on 11/12/2011, 10:00 a.m. Move fast..
