Radiohead delivered their first performance in some 18 months during a surprise appearance at the Glastonbury Music Festival in Pilton, England on Friday, June 24th. The 75-minute, 14-song set marked the live premiere for many of the songs appearing on their recently released eighth LP, The King of Limbs, including set opener “Lotus Flower”, “Good Morning Mr. Magpie”, “Little By Little”, “Separator” and “Bloom”. “Staircase“, a track which the band debuted just last week, was also performed. Update: You can now watch the entire performance below.

According to Spinner, fan reaction to the new songs was “as cool as the weather.” Yorke himself admitted “we’re all massively nervous about this,” though he said the band agreed to perform in exchange for tickets. “We’re here to get in free.”

Radiohead’s next scheduled performance will come in the form of the BBC program Radiohead – The King of Limbs: Live From The Basement, which will be distributed worldwide beginning July 1st.

By the way, if you’re wondering about Phil Selway’s new partner-in-crime/doppelganger, that would be Clive Deamer behind kit #2. Name ring a bell? Deamer’s worked with the likes of Portishead; in fact, he played drums on the group’s landmark 1994 debut, Dummy. He’ll also be appearing on The Basement program.

shame Radiohead’s guitarist cant play the the keyboard as well as his guitar, he was playing lotus flower in the wrong key. So unproffesional for a band that’s ment to be amazing and massive. Personally found them boring and left after bout 6 songs before it started raining. absolute shite I thought.

If you’d stayed for the whole set you’d have seen JG play the keyboard at the same time as his guitar!!!

It’s ridiculous to see what all of the guys are doing in the songs from TKOL. Now people can stop calling this a Thom Yorke solo album… this music is far too complicated. Love it.

I think people are calling it a Thom Yorke solo album because it sounds like Thom Yorke’s solo album, not because it only takes on person to play the songs. He needed a full band to play his solo tour also.

While Glastonbury has ridiculous EVERYTHING lineups, you can’t possibly see a lot of it. At Bonnaroo, you can see most everything, which makes the lineups better, even if they seem worse on paper.

I’ll agree that “technically” it is slightly geeky, but to think that fleet foxes, morrissey, and u2 put together the best lineup you’ve seen is a lot more geeky…… douche

“Shit, todays line-up at Glastonbury may be the best day’s worth of music at a festival since original Woodstock.  U2, Radiohead, Fleet Foxes, Morrissey.”

What a dumb thing to say. If that is the best day of music in your mind since Woodstock, its a sad little world you live in.

 Is that a dumb thing to say? The guy said it’s the best festival day since Woodstock – what festival has had a day so much better than today’s staggering Glasto line-up as to make that statement laughable? I’m go out on a limb, and say one of the following is far more laughable than Andy’s statement: your literacy skills or you music knowledge.

If they do end up webcasting it, you (and the rest of our readers) will be the first to know.

Yeah, does anyone know if there is a Glasto webcast this weekend?  I know that they do it, but sometimes its blocked in the states.

Yes, but it doesn’t appear they’ll be showing Radiohead.

Its not really a surprise now, is it?

I think this gives serious hope to the North American festivals in 2012 but this “last minute” deal probably means big $$$. With 2 weekend Coachella should be able to swing that!

Glastonbury is pretty notorious for paying on the cheap — a lot of bands play just to say they did. I do wonder how much they would get for such a surprise appearance though.

The tease reads “first live performance in 18 years”.

Thanks for catching that! My eyes are still blurry from the early morning wake-up!
