Radiohead are known for their grand, sweeping concerts that highlight the band’s creativity and experimentalism. On Sunday evening, frontman Thom Yorke and guitarist Jonny Greenwood stripped all that away for a rare performance as a duo during a benefit show in Italy.
The concert was held to support the Italian region of Le Marche, which was struck by a massive earthquake one year ago. Taking place at the Macerata Sferisterio, Yorke and Greenwood made the uncommon performance even more special by dusting off a number of rarities from their catalog. “Faust Arp” and the unreleased “Follow Me Around” were played for the first time since 2010, “A Wolf at the Door” appeared for the first time since 2012, and the last time Yorke performed his solo song “Cymbal Rush” was 2008.
