On Tuesday night, Radiohead returned to the stage at Les Arenes in Nimes, France for their first performance since last month’s tragic stage collapse in Toronto, which resulted in the death of drum tech Scott Johnson. It was a night of surprises, from opening the set with OK Computer‘s “Lucky” to a debut live performance of Kid A’s “Treefingers”. The latter, purely instrumental ambient track opened up the set’s encore and you can view the cut below.

In honor of Johnson’s passing, the band returned for a unique third encore performance of “Reckoner”. Photos of Johnson graced the screen behind the band, as you can see in the photo provided above. According to a report by Hidden Track, changes to the stage set up include the exclusion of their LED screen and the screens now remain stationary. The band will return to Les Arenes on Wednesday night; consult their remaining itinerary below.
