Radiohead debuted more new material during the second night of their UK tour at Blackpool's Empress Ballroom over the weekend.

Following on from their comeback show on Friday night (May 12), which saw the band play six new tracks, the Oxford five-piece performed 'Go Slowly' for the first time on Saturday.

The song, which appeared in the opening night's setlist but was never actually played, was descibed as "quite dark and bass heavy" and it saw singer Thom Yorke get behind a piano.

Yorke also premiered the War Child track 'I Want None Of This' for the first time during the second encore and the band treated their UK fans to their debut airing of 'Spooks' and '4 Minute Warning'.

Radiohead ran through a selection of classics drawn from 'The Bends' and 'OK Computer' including 'Paranoid Android', 'Karma Police', 'Just', 'The Bends' and 'Street Spirit'.

The band have just finished recording the track 'Nude', which is slated to appear on Radiohead's seventh album.

Guitarist Ed O'Brien also confirmed that the band will be playing more shows next year.

Radiohead's setlist ran:

'Everything In Its Right Place'
'The National Anthem'
'15 Step'
'Morning Bell'
'Pyramid Song'
'Go Slowly'
'Bangers 'N' Mash'
'Dollars And Cents'
'How To Disappear Completely'
'Karma Police'
'You And Whose Army?'
'There There'
'Four Minute Warning'
'The Bends'
'Street Spirit'
'I Want None Of This'
'Paranoid Android'
