Radiohead played their single ‘2+2=5’ for the first time in seven years as their tour reached Paris.
As well as playing ‘2+2=5’ from 2003’s ‘Hail To The Thief’ at Le Zenith arena, the show saw ‘OK Computer’ songs ‘Climbing Up The Walls’ and ‘Airbag’ played for the first time on the tour.
Having recently released new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’, Radiohead’s tour has seen them vary the setlist for each night.
As many as 10 songs have changed each night, with ‘Creep’, ‘My Irong Lung’ and ‘No Surprises’ also making rare appearances at shows in Amsterdam and Paris.
The tour reaches London tonight (May 26) for the start of a three-night residency at the intimate 3,300-capacity Roundhouse theatre. The tour continues around Europe until July 8, reaching the US on July 26. It ends at Austin City Limits festival in Texas on October 9.
There is speculation that Radiohead will play a secret set at Glastonbury, after Michael Eavis made reference to them at a speech to the Oxford Union recently. There are several gaps in the bill, most notably just before Adele’s headline appearance on the Pyramid Stage on June 25.
Radiohead played a secret set at the Park Stage for ‘The King Of Limbs’ in 2011 and last headlined in 2003. However, NME understands that the pre-Adele slot may well be taken by a different artist.
