Radiohead live in Nimes – Live Report

Tonight Radiohead returns to the stage for the first show of their European tour at Les Arenes in Nimes, France. It’s also the first show since the stage collapse in Toronto and the subsequent canceled shows that followed. Tonight will obviously be a tough one for the band.

Caribou is once again supporting and Radiohead should be on stage shortly (likely around 8:45pm). We’ll do our best to bring you live setlist updates here as well as on our Twitter account.

OK, the show has begun and the lighting rig is quite different. The screens that used to hang and move over top of the band now appear to be fixed behind them and the giant bottle LED screen appears to be gone. However, Jonny’s telecaster is accounted for.

Lucky opens a show for the first time since 1998 (obviously a reaction to Toronto) and Treefingers, a song most assumed would never be played live, gets its live debut. Given the circumstances, that first encore looks like it would have been pretty intense. Videotape was played for just the second time this year.

For the final encore song of Reckoner, Thom thanked the crew and dedicated the song to “our friend Scott.” An emotional end to what was certainly an emotional night for the band. In addition, Scott’s photo was displayed throughout Reckoner.

The band play Nimes again tomorrow night.

And here’s video of Treefingers’ live debut.

  • Nice touch with the starting track and displaying Scott’s photo during reckoner. Must be such a hard experience for everyone involved to start the tour up again after the tragedy. Wouldn’t be surprised if they play motion picture soundtrack with the ‘bonus’ ending soon. Hope Scott is feeling the love somehow.

  • Jonny’s tele is what actually binds Radiohead together. Looks like they got lucky this time.

  • Does anyone knows the setlist of Caribou?

  • This tour has been just flat out amazing. Despite the tragedy they come back and, spare the lightshow, get it right. Another test being endured by such a great band. Seeing them in Camden was one of the moments I’ve felt most alive. So glad I could be a part of this tour and seeing others reactions as well.

  • That was brilliant
