Singer performed the track during a New York gig

Released in 1992, ‘Creep’ was Radiohead’s debut single. The band have rarely played the song live since 1998 and last performed it at the Reading Festival in 2009. Earlier this year, singer-songwriter Frank Turner dubbed the band “petty” for not performing ‘Creep’ more regularly.
“What we do is we’re entertainers, at the end of the day. It’s like the whole Radiohead not playing ‘Creep’ thing. You are entertainers because you’ve charged people £40 to be here, and it’s not going to kill you to take three minutes out of your setlist to play the one song that everyone wants to hear. Just fucking play it. You’ll make everybody’s night.”
Turner added, “There’s something kind of petty about not playing it to me. The world is full of bands that wish they had one song that everyone wanted to hear, you’ve got one, enjoy it.”
Among the other artists to cover ‘Creep’ includes Prince, who performed the song at the Coachella Festival in 2008.
