Radiohead To Perform ‘The King Of Limbs’ In Its Entirety

Posted: May 4, 2011 in News + Reviews

Radiohead fansite At Ease has reported that Radiohead will perform ‘The King Of Limbs’ in it’s entirety via Nigel Godrich’s ‘From The Basement‘ and it will be screened and distributed worldwide through the BBC.  It’ll likely feature a similar set up to their ‘Scotch Mist’ screenings or more probably akin to the ‘From The Basement’ live performance of their last album ‘In Rainbows’, which is featured in the video above.  What is certain, it’ll be interesting to see the band perform these new tracks in such intimate quarters, especially as I’m still not entirely convinced with ‘TKOL’.

The BBC has signed a deal with Radiohead to distribute internationally a new and exclusive live performance of Radiohead’s eighth album, ‘The King of Limbs’. Radiohead – The King of Limbs: Live From The Basement is a 55-minute performance by the band and will feature the notoriously elusive band performing the entirety of their celebrated new album in a studio setting with some additional behind the scenes material. It is scheduled to be the first time that the grammy-award winners are captured on camera this year.

In a press release Bryce Edge of Courtyard Management, Radiohead’s management company said, “This will be Radiohead’s first collaboration with BBC Worldwide and the band are excited at the prospect of having their first live performance of ‘The King of Limbs’ broadcast around the world . The band will be filmed and recorded by the From The Basement team, which includes Nigel Godrich their long time producer, Dilly Gent ,who commissioned many of the memorable Radiohead videos and Grant Gee who filmed the Radiohead documentary ‘Meeting People is Easy’”

Radiohead – The King of Limbs: Live from the Basement becomes available to international broadcasters in June and is embargoed for broadcast until 1st July 2011. The programme is filmed in HD, will have no audience and no presenter – just a rare opportunity to see an intimate performance from one of the greatest bands in the world.
