As well as the ‘Like Spinning Plates’ performance, the show saw Yorke play a host of songs from his three solo albums, ‘ANIMA’, 2014’s ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ and 2006 debut ‘The Eraser’, alongside a few Atoms For Peace cuts and a track from his soundtrack to the reboot of horror movie Suspiria, which was released last year.

In a four star review of ‘ANIMA’, NME‘s James McMahon said: “This is an artfully produced fever dream of an album that, in its doominess, suggests we should continue to pay credence to the prophet Thom Yorke.”

Yorke’s solo tour continues tomorrow (October 9) in New Orleans.

Recently, the frontman appeared on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs with Lauren Laverne, and discussed the death of his former partner Rachel Owen, and explained how R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe helped him cope with fame.
