Radiohead fans stuck self-isolating at home have something to look forward to over the next while, with the band announcing they’re digging through the archives to present a series of full concert films weekly over on their YouTube channel.
“Now that you have no choice whether or not you fancy a quiet night in, we hereby present the first of several live shows from the Radiohead Public Library now coming to Radiohead’s YouTube channel,” reads a post from the band, who say they’ll be releasing one film a week until either current restrictions are eased or they run out of shows to stream.
The first show, ‘Live From a Tent in Dublin’, was directed by Dilly Gent and edited by Quin Williams, and captures the band’s Kid A-era performance at Punchestown Racecourse in Ireland back in 2000. That’ll be streamed Friday morning, 7am Australian time, so set your alarms for bright and early.
The concert occurred less than a week after the band released their seminal fourth album, with a setlist that included many new album cuts like ‘The National Anthem’, ‘Optimistic’, ‘Morning Bell’, ‘In Limbo’, ‘Idioteque’ and ‘Motion Picture Soundtrack’ along with ‘Paranoid Android’, ‘Karma Police’, ‘Exit Music (For a Film)’ and ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’.
