In promotion of their latest album "The King of Limbs," Radiohead has added two Canadian stops on its tour and will be performing at the Bell Centre in Montreal and Downsview Park in Toronto.

They'll play the former on June 15th and the latter on June 16th. Juno-award winner Caribou will be the opening act for both shows.

The band is in the midst of a North American tour and announced the addition of a dozen more shows on their profile page on yesterday.

Radiohead is a British alternative-rock band headed by lead singer/guitarist/keyboardist Thom Yorke. They released their first album "Drill" in May 1992 and it didn't do well on the charts at all. That is, until they released their third album "OK Computer" and not only made it to number-one on the UK charts for the first time but also garnered them a Grammy win for Best Alternative Album and a nomination for Album of the Year. Since that time Radiohead has released five more albums that have sold more than 30 million records worldwide, and they have made a number of "best artist" lists in Rolling Stone magazine. They also won two more Grammys and as well as an MTV Video Music Award. They released their latest effort "The King of Limbs" in February of last year.

According to The Canadian Press, tickets for the Toronto show are $81 and go on sale Friday. Tickets for the Montreal concert range between $73.50 and $83.50 and go on sale Saturday. Pre-sale tickets will be available on Thursday.
