Thom Yorke does a cracking impersonation of the British PM at the first of the band's Earl's Court dates...

RADIOHEAD frontman THOM YORKE impersonated British Prime Minister TONY BLAIR from the stage at the first of the band’s two sold-out shows in LONDON last night (November 26).

The star introduced the track ‘You And Whose Army’, which is about Blair, by complaining about last week’s state visit by US President George W Bush to London, before saying: “These are the kind of faces Tony Blair pulls when Bush comes to visit” – the giant screens at the side of the stage then showing a close-up of Yorke’s impersonation – involving lots of eyebrow movement – as he sang the song.

Radiohead played a set drawn mainly from current album ‘Hail To The Thief’, interspersed with old favourites including ‘Karma Police’, ‘Fake Plastic Trees’ and ‘Just’.

The set was:

‘The Gloaming’


‘My Iron Lung’

‘Where I End And You Begin’

‘Kid A’

‘I Will’


‘I Might Be Wrong’

‘Sail To The Moon’


‘Paranoid Android’

‘Go To Sleep’

‘Sit Down Stand Up’



‘Fake Plastic Trees’

‘There There’

Encore 1:

‘You And Whose Army’

‘The National Anthem’

‘A Wolf At The Door’

‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’

‘Karma Police’

‘Everything In Its Right Place’

Radiohead play another show at the same venue tonight (November 27).
