It's an amazing end to Radiohead's UK tour...
THOM YORKE performed a solo version of ‘TRUE LOVE WAITS’ to end the band’s thrilling tour of tiny UK clubs last night.
The band, who have been on the road for the last week playing their smallest British venues in six years, ended the tour with a two-night residency at the London Shepherds Bush Empire (May 24-25).
At the final show, which was recorded for future broadcast on MTV, Thom came back after the encore on his own to play the song – which is adored by hardcore fans and rarely played live.
The song is so rarely played, Thom had to stop the song twice because he’d forgotten the words. Both times he ran to the first row of the audience to ask which line he’d missed.
