Radiohead has been back on the road, playing live for a week now, but everything still isn’t in its right place.
Last night (May 26), they played their first of three scheduled shows at London’s Roundhouse. In the second encore, they started to perform “Nude,” a track they’ve played countless times since releasing it on their 2007 album In Rainbows. But sometimes, even the best of us make mistakes and for a second, want to disappear completely. Below, watch Jonny Greenwood mess up a guitar note early in the song and get called out by Thom Yorke.
Radiohead’s fans were a little rusty, too. During the set closer — “Paranoid Android,” during the second encore — the chorus of crowd voices singing along jumped the gun, and started singing the bridge (“rain down, rain down”) a tad too early. Again, Yorke had to stop and poke fun.
The current European tour has been full of surprises; fortunately, they’ve gone beyond the sort that involve forgetting the music to songs from roughly a decade (or two) ago. Here, watch Radiohead perform “Creep” live for the first time in seven years during their May 23 show in Paris.
Radiohead is (as if we had to remind you) currently touring in support of its 2016 album A Moon Shaped Pool. Only July 26 and 27, they’ll hit New York’s Madison Square Garden for their first pair of U.S. dates on the current tour.
