Radiohead have spoken about their looming European summer tour – their first full one in five years.

Speaking to Radio 1's Newsbeat guitarist Jonny Greenwood said he looked forward to heading out on the road again.

He said: "I've thought of it (touring) solidly since the last tour, I'm addicted to it and I can't wait. It's like backpacking in enormous luxury, you get to be in a different city every day but without any of the effort of travelling. It's an easy way to see the world and you get to play a show in the evening. It's a great life."

However, he added it can be exhausting being on the road and admitted: "We enjoy it for three months and then we get tired and ill and then it gets stressful. But for those first three months, it's great."

Lead singer Thom Yorke added that his biggest stress on the road was overcoming his fear of flying.

"I try not to think about it," he said. "It's in case you mess up, in case you get ill, lots of things. Getting on a plane I hate with a passion, I try not to panic all the way through. It gets worse but you just kiss the ground when you get there and carry on."

Radiohead’s tour kicks off on June 7 in Dublin.

The band play the following dates:

Dublin Malahide Castle (June 7)
Paris Bercy (9, 10)
Barcelona Parc del Forum (12)
Nimes Arenes (14)
