During the first lockdown of 2020, Radiohead went back into their extensive archive and began sharing pro-shot, full length gigs to entertain their rabid fan base. Some great films emerged from that time, but few seem as adventurous as this set from a South American gig.
From somewhere near the end of the tour cycle for the critically acclaimed ‘Moon Shaped Pool’ album, Radiohead appear to be at peak confidence, diving straight in with a pair of numbers from the still relatively new album, before exploring bits of a rich and varied history with no specific structure for their sprawling set list.
Clocking in at almost two and a half hours, the show is a veritable marathon, darting back and forth through the then recent present and the past, seemingly not shy of revisiting key moments from fan favourite ‘Hail To The Thief’, as well as a few bits from the career changing ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’. It certainly isn’t suitable for anyone hoping to experience the nostalgia of ‘The Bends’ and ‘OK Computer’, but for those willing to be enveloped in a world of relative experimentation, the gig certainly isn’t without its many highlights.
