Radiohead played a one-off show in aid of Haiti's earthquake survivors last night (January 24).

The band broke from recording sessions to play a gig at Los Angeles' Music Box Theatre At The Fonda, to raise funds for Oxfam's attempts to help the country that was hit by the natural disaster earlier this month.

With tickets for the show auctioned off in advance, the band played a full set to the packed crowd, which saw a Radiohead debut for 'Lotus Flower', Ateaseweb.com reports.

The new song has only previously been performed solo by frontman Thom Yorke.

Radiohead played:

'Faust Arp'
'Fake Plastic Trees'
'Weird Fishes/Arpeggi'
'The National Anthem'
'Karma Police'
'Kid A'
'Morning Bell'
'How To Disappear Completely'
'A Wolf at the Door'
'The Bends'
'Dollars & Cents'
'Exit Music'
'Everything In Its Right Place'
'You And Whose Army?'
'Pyramid Song'
'All I Need'
'Lotus Flower'
'Paranoid Android'
'Street Spirit (Fade Out)'

The gig was staged as part of a wider appeal by Oxfam, which has seen items donated by the likes of Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, Glastonbury Festival and more being entered into an online auction that runs until February 2.
