    Radiohead kicked off their world tour behind A Moon Shaped Pool in Amsterdam on Friday night. It marked the band’s first live performance since November 2012.

    The on-stage lineup featured core members Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O’Brien, and Phil Selway, along with Portishead drummer Clive Deamer. The band was not accompanied by an orchestra despite one’s presence on the record. Instead, the instrumentation was rearranged for guitar and bass.

    To open the show, Radiohead performed the first five songs from A Moon Shaped Pool, which marked the live debut for “Burn the Witch”, “Daydreaming”, and “Decks Dark” as well as the first-ever full band performance of “Desert Island Disc”. They then played “Morning Mr. Magpie” from The King of Limbs, “There There” from Hail to the Thief, and the 2011 standalone single “The Daily Mail”. For the evening’s biggest surprise, The Bends track “My Iron Lung” was dusted off for the first time in seven years.


    Later on in the set, they performed “Videotape” from In Rainbows and returned to A Moon Shaped Pool with performances of “Identikit” and “The Numbers”, a live debut. Next came “The Gloaming” from Hail to the Thief, “Lotus Flower” from TKOL, “Everything In Its Right Place” and “Idioteque” from Kid A, and “Bodysnatchers” from In Rainbows, which closed the main set.

    Radiohead started their first encore with The King of Limbs track “Bloom” before giving the first-ever full performance of “Present Tense”. They then did the OK Computer classic “Paranoid Android”, “Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief” from their new album A Moon Shaped Pool, and “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” from In Rainbows.

    The band closed the show with a second encore featuring performances of “You and Whose Army?” from Amnesiac and “Reckoner” from In Rainbows.
