Radiohead rumoured to play at Zodiac re-opening

Oxford’s premier live music venue, The Zodiac, is being transformed into a club “for the future” as part of a 2 million pounds expansion project. Radiohead are rumoured to play when the club re-opens in September.The Zodiac has a long history with Radiohead. The band’s management funded an earlier refit in 1995 and the video for ‘Creep’ was filmed in the same venue.The plans will see the club partially demolished and rebuilt with three separate venues under the same roof. The total capacity will increase from 750 to 1,150 to be renamed The Carling Academy Oxford. The Zodiac’s name will live on, though as a 436-person upstairs venue, which will host new bands.Work will start in mid-May, and see the club closed for four months. Its re-opening in September will be celebrated with a party. AMG, the current owner of the club, remains tight-lipped over who could appear, but refuses to rule out Radiohead.The club’s general manager, Carl Bathgate, said the larger venue would allow Oxford to attract bands which were currently by-passing the city. He said: “Bigger acts will visit Oxford more frequently.” [source: thisisoxfordshire.co.uk, thx Steve]
