The tide of Radiohead’s “A Moon Shaped Pool” tour rolled into Paris on Monday and while the band’s set has been pretty much the same so far, they busted out some classics and fan favorites that had the Parisian crowd at Le Zenith ecstatic. Highlights included the first performance of “No Surprises” since 2009, the first “True Love Waits” in a decade, and happy birthday was sung to drummer Phil Selway after “Bloom.” But the most memorable moment came when the band busted out “Creep” for the second encore.
While both “Creep” and “No Surprises” hadn’t been played in seven years, it was “Creep” that really got the crowd going. “Creep” has a certain sing along quality to it and the audience certainly did that. Even the band was playing the performance close to the chest. According to Setlist.fm, the written setlist contained the real names of most of the songs but in “Creep’s” spot simply the word “just.” The surprise definitely went off well. Le Zenith went absolutely nuts when Radiohead hit the zenith of the song. Thom Yorke looked pretty happy after the performance as well. Happy Thom Yorke is good. You can check out a multi-cam video of Radiohead’s performance of “Creep” embedded above.
Radiohead will be hitting the States in July with two shows at Madison Square Garden in July before heading west to Los Angeles for two dates in August.
