WATCH: Radiohead launch new tour with two surprising new plays
Radiohead‘s got a pretty deep bag of tricks at their disposal. With nine studio albums under their belt, it makes sense that some of the band’s tracks have yet to see the light of day or a live play in years. On July 7, Radiohead performed their scrapped Bond theme “Spectre” live for the first time together as a band. Thom Yorke had previously performed the track solo but as the band just kicked off their North American summer tour in Chicago, it was a better time than ever to pull out some rarities.
Radiohead played two encores at their first tour stop at Chicago’s United Center on July 7, during which they played Pablo Honey’s “Blow Out,” a track off their debut that they haven’t played live since a 2008 show in Tokyo when they toured In Rainbows.
