Watch Radiohead play classics from ‘The Bends’ for the first time in six years

The band air 'The Bends' and 'Fake Plastic Trees'

[a]Radiohead[/s]’s ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ world tour continues to surprise fans, this time with the band airing classic cuts from ‘The Bends’ for the first time in six years. See footage below.

Playing two nights at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes this week, each show brought a different surprise to the setlist as the band introduced the title track from their seminal album ‘The Bends’, and the other show brought out the timeless 90s single ‘Fake Plastic Trees’. This was the first time that the tracks have been performed by the band since 2010.

Both shows also saw surprise closing performances of ‘Creep’, which did not appear on either gig’s setlist.

Yesterday saw Radiohead unveil the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video for a stripped back rendition of ‘The Numbers’ from ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ – while last week, a new, unheard Radiohead song ‘Ill Wind’ appeared online from the special edition of ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’.
