Michael Stipe shares photo of himself holding hands with Thom Yorke at New York art exhibition

Radiohead are in New York for a four night residency

Former R.E.M frontman Michael Stipe has shared a picture of himself holding hands with Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke at a New York art exhibition.

The pair posed for the picture at Stipe’s Infinity Mirror exhibition in the city with the caption “Thom the greatest ever dropped by the show.” You can view the picture below.



Stipe’s “Infinity Mirror” exhibition was inspired by his recent art book, Volume 1, which according to Williamsburg’s Journal Gallery, where the exhibit is on display “further expands on his use of photo-based practices to explore the 1970s as a formative decade through its cultural impact on his coming of age, and subsequently, the manner in which its influence informed the creative work he went on to create, both privately and as a public figure.”

Radiohead are currently in the middle of a four night residency in Madison Square Gardens and Yorke popped into the gallery to view Stipe’s exhibition.

Stipe also attended the band’s gig at Madison Square Gardens last night (July 12).

Meanwhile, Radiohead recently played their Bond theme ‘Spectre’ live for first time in Chicago earlier this week. Yorke previously performed the track solo.


The band also recently performed ‘Blow Out’ live for the first time in 10 years.
