Radiohead fans were already excited that the English rock band will headline this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in mid-April.

Now the band has announced an 11-date U.S. tour scheduled to kick off March 30 at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami.

This isn't the first time Radiohead has started a tour in the Magic City. In 2012, the band began its North American tour in support of the album The King of Limbs at the American Airlines Arena. (Before that, the group kicked off its 2008 tour in West Palm Beach. Notice a pattern?)

Last year, the band toured Europe and North America. It announced dates even before the title of the ninth studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool, had been revealed. For this tour, the band seems to be taking advantage of the Coachella appearance.

Miami is the only Florida stop — and the tour kickoff — so expect tickets to go fast. With a career that spans three decades, Radiohead continues to grow its fan base. Last year's A Moon Shaped Pool was a critical success that debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. The album was led by the single "Burn the Witch," whose stop-motion-animated music video paid homage to the 1973 film The Wicker Man.

Tickets for Radiohead's Miami show go on sale Friday, January 20, and there's a four-ticket limit per order.
