Published: 2006-10-18
In a recent reports, frontman Thom Yorke of Radiohead has been noted as saying that he may stop touring. Yorke is a dedicated environmentalist and believes that the large rock shows have a serious impact on the environment and little is being done about it.

"The way that tours are structured now and the way it works is a ridiculous consumption of energy," Yorke told The Guardian newspaper. "I would consider refusing to tour on environmental grounds, if nothing started happening to change the way the touring operates."

Yorke went on to comment that even concert goers were participating in unnecessary consumption of natural resources by some 80,000 people a concert sitting in traffic jams with their engines running.
