Watch Radiohead play ‘Blow Out’ for the first time in 10 years

The band unearthed the 'Pablo Honey' track as they kicked off their US tour

Radiohead played ‘Blow Out’ for the first time in 10 years as they began their US tour last night (July 6).

The track appeared on their 1993 debut ‘Pablo Honey‘ and last appeared in the Oxford band’s set when they played in Tokyo in 2008.

Radiohead kicked off their latest run of US dates at Chicago’s United Center, where they are due to perform again tonight (July 7). ‘Blow Out’ appeared as the group returned to the stage for a second encore to end the night. Watch fan-shot footage of the performance below.


According to, when the band played ‘A Moon Shaped Pool‘ song ‘Decks Dark’, frontman Thom Yorke told the audience: “I can’t remember the fucking words.” The rest of the band’s set was largely culled from that album, 2007’s ‘In Rainbows‘ and 1997’s ‘OK Computer‘.

‘Desert Island Disk’

‘Ful Stop’
‘Morning Bell’
‘All I Need’
‘Pyramid Song’
‘Paranoid Android’
‘Decks Dark’
‘Let Down’
‘The Numbers’
‘How To Disappear Completely’
‘Loftus Flower’
‘Everything In Its Right Place’
‘Burn The Witch’
‘Weird Fishes/Arpeggi’
‘Fake Plastic Trees’
’15 Step’
‘Blow Out’
‘No Surprises’

Meanwhile, guitarist Jonny Greenwood is pulling double duty on Radiohead’s US tour, appearing as the band’s support act as part of Junun. The opening group consists of Greenwood, Israeli Shye Ben Tzur and Indian ensemble Rajasthan Express.


The tour runs until August 1 when it concludes at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. Along the way, Radiohead will play four nights at New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden.
