Radiohead Stunned Madison Square Garden With An Ultra-Rare Performance Of "Let Down"
Welcome to church
Whenever an artist comes to Madison Square Garden, you just know they're going to pull out all the stops. Even the elusive British alt gods Radiohead had something special in store for their New York City acolytes. The band was in town Tuesday for the first stop on the United States leg of their A Moon Shaped Pool tour, and according to Stereogum, they played "Let Down" for the first time since 2006.
The standout Ok Computer is a fan favorite, but for a band as prolific as Radiohead, there are naturally going to be some gems from their extensive catalogue that just don't make the set list. However, that's something the band has been trying to remedy on their latest tour. On earlier stops, Radiohead busted out rare performances of winners like "Creep," "2+2=5," and "My Iron Lung."
No wonder some fans were plunking down a full week's salary to see Thom Yorke and Co. take the stage at one of the world's most storied arenas. Those of you who missed last night's religious experience need not worry. Radiohead will perform to another sold-out Madison Square Garden tonight. Thank god for StubHub.
