Radiohead perform controversial show in Israel
 Add to favorites

Radiohead have taken to the stage in Israel, following huge backlash to their refusal to cancel the planned date.

The band received widespread criticism for refusing to join a cultural boycott of Israel over their human rights violations. Radiohead have faced numerous requests to cancel the gig, with an open letter recently issued by Artists For Palestine UK – and signed by musicians including Roger Waters, Thurston Moore and Young Fathers – asking the group to “think again” about their decision to perform.

Singer Thom Yorke recently had a Twitter altercation with director Ken Loach over the Israel gig, with the latter asking the band whether they would “stand with the oppressed or the oppressor?”

The show tonight (July 19) will mark the final stop of their world tour in support of ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’, and the 20th anniversary of iconic album ‘OK Computer’.

After soundchecking with‘All I Need’, ‘Daydreaming’, ‘The Numbers’, ‘Myxomatosis’, ‘Bloom’, and ‘Like Spinning Plates‘, Radiohead’s setlist at Tel Aviv’s Park HaYarkon saw them play the following:

Daydreaming Lucky Ful Stop Airbag 15 Step Myxomatosis All I Need Pyramid Song Everything in Its Right Place Let Down Bloom Identikit Weird Fishes/Arpeggi The Numbers 2 + 2 = 5 Bodysnatchers Idioteque
