Radiohead kicked off their World Tour tonight at the American Airlines Arena, where the band debuted songs both old and new in front of a capacity crowd. Augmented by drummer Clive Deamer, the Brits unveiled two brand new songs – Identikit and Cut a Hole. Meeting In The Aisle, an instrumental first released on the Airbag / How Am I Driving? EP in 1998, saw its live debut this evening.
Front man Thom Yorke mentioned that “every night is going to be different” late in the show, giving fans hope that this tour’s setlists will vary even more so than in the past.
