AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, March 14 (UPI) -- Radiohead has announced their first world tour and U.S concert dates in four years.

The band, which hasn't been on tour since 2012, made the announcement on their official site Monday revealing their plans to start touring on May 20 at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam and wrap up on Oct. 4 at the Palacio de los Deportes center in Mexico City.

The band will only be performing in four locations in North America including the shows scheduled in Mexico City. Radiohead will be appearing at Madison Square Garden in New York City from July 26 - 27, the Oshega Music and Arts Festival in Montreal from July 29 -31 and at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on August 4 and 8.

"These are all the headline shows that the band will play in 2016," Radiohead noted before mentioning how they plan to sell the tickets differently in order to avoid second-hand sales. "To minimize secondary ticketing and to give more fans a chance to buy a ticket at its intended price, restrictions will apply, including a limit of 2 tickets per order on all shows," they continued.

The world tour announcement comes after the group signed on to perform at three upcoming music festivals, the Primavera Sound festival in Spain (June 2-4), the OpenAir St Gallen festival in Switzerland (July 2), and the NOS Alive festival in Portugal (July 8) back in January.

In October, Radiohead registered a new company, Dawn Chorus LLP, leading fans to believe a new album was on the way. A similar company making tactic was used before Radiohead released their albums In Rainbows in 2007 and The King of Limbs in 2011, however the band has still not announced a new project.
