Radiohead continue to dig deep into their gold-mine of hits on tour in support of A Moon Shaped Pool

The British alternative rock veterans let out a pair of big surprises when their trek stopped in at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes for a pair of concerts earlier this week.

Having already dusted off such rare favorites as “Creep,” “Planet Telex,” “No Surprises” and “Let Down” in recent months, Radiohead blew minds when they inserted classics "Fake Plastic Trees" and "The Bends" into their setlist. 

Both tracks, of course, belong to The Bends, the band’s seminal sophomore album from 1995 which established Radiohead as something special. According to various reports, Radiohead hasn’t performed either song live since 2010.

Radiohead on Wednesday (Oct. 5) shared the Paul Thomas Anderson-helmed video for "The Numbers," lifted from their most recent album, A Moon Shaped Pool.
