Whether you were lucky enough to catch Radiohead's rare and mesmerizing Detroit appearance last month;or not, Thom Yorke is making up for lost time by circling back in Nov. as part of a month-long solo trek.

Described as "live electronic performances" Yorke has enlisted Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and audiovisual artist Tarik Barri for the 17-city winter tour. The performance will span Yorke's solo works The Eraser, 2014's Tomorrow's Modern Boxes, and his one-off album Amok with supergroup project Atoms For Peace.

The tour, which aligns with the release of Yorke's first major motion picture score for the upcoming remake of the 1977 Italian horror film Suspira, begins in Philadelphia and will visit the Masonic Temple's 1,586-seat Jack White Theater on Dec. 2.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 17 at 10 a.m. for $56.50 and can be purchased here.
