Let’s just say it’s been a little while since Radiohead played one of their most famous and popular songs “Creep,” off their 1993 album Pablo Honey. But to kick off their tour last night (May 23) in Paris, they decided to give fans a treat.
Yorke told the crowd, “This is for the funny guy shouting for ‘Creep’ at the back, if only to shock you.” He then laughed in a staccato-like way that perfectly lead into the song. The audience went absolutely wild and sang along with the band.
Radiohead hasn’t played “Creep” live since their August 2009 performance at the Reading Festival (via Billboard).
With A Moon Shaped Pool, the band released a handful of songs they have been playing live for years so it makes sense that they would turn the tables and revisit some of the songs they haven’t performed in years.
A fan in the audience captured video. Watch the video on Radio.com. Warning, it’s not the radio edit.
