Thom Yorke to play exclusive solo set at Portugal’s NOS Alive Festival in 2019

It's the first time Yorke has brought his solo set to Portugal

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke will play an exclusive solo set at Portugal’s NOS Alive 2019. It will be the first time Yorke has brought his solo show to Portugal.

The festival, which takes place in Lisbon from 11-13 July 2019, will also see performances from Sharon Van Etten, Jorja Smith and Pip Bloom; all will play the Sagres Stage alongside Yorke. You can buy tickets for the event here.

Yorke will perform alongside long-term producer and collaborated Nigel Godrich and visual artists Tarik Barri and will perform songs from across his solo works ‘The Eraser’ and ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ as well as work from Atoms For Peace’s ‘AMOK’.


Earlier this week, Yorke released some new footage where he plays an acoustic version of ‘Open Again’ from the Suspiria soundtrack he scored earlier this year.

The Radiohead frontman released his score for Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the classic horror in October. It features 25 original compositions – with contributions from the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, Pasha Mansurov, and Yorke’s own son, Noah, who plays drums on two songs.

Yorke recently performed the Suspiria track ‘Unmade’ for the first time, as his solo tour kicked off in the US.

At the opening night of his tour in Philidelphia on November 23, the musician gave ‘Unmade’ its live debut during the show’s second encore. The track was the only Suspiria cut to feature in the set, which leant on material from Yorke’s solo albums and Atoms for Peace songs.


Other acts confirmed to play NOS Alive in 2019 include: Bon Iver, The Cure, Smashing Pumpkins and Tash Sultana.
