British rockers Radiohead will make their first Detroit appearance in 15 years this summer, with a June 11 concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
The highly regarded quintet, a three-time Grammy Award winner, last played the area on Aug. 15, 1997, at the State Theatre (now the Fillmore Detroit) during its tour for its then-current album "OK Computer." The group has skipped the area ever since; it's never offered any particular reason, though a series of urban myths have surfaced ranging from being offended by comments made by a local radio DJ to corporate signage at local venues.
Radiohead's latest album, "The King of Limbs," came out in February of 2011. The group is working on new material and has debuted a pair of songs, "Cut a Hole" and "Identikit," in recent shows.
Tickets for Radiohead's show are $69.50 and go on sale Saturday (March 10) at the Palace box office and through www.livenation.com and www.ticketmaster.com. Caribou will open the show.
