Celebrate Thom Yorke’s Birthday With Massive Festival Perfromances Past And Present [Full Show Videos]

Today, singer, multi-instrumentalist, and tortured Radiohead visionary Thom Yorke turns 49 years old. This week, Radiohead was honored with a nomination for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2018—a particularly grand gesture considering this is the first year the group is eligible for entry. Earlier in the year, Radiohead released OKNOTOK, the 20th-anniversary reissue of their 1997 album, OK Computer. The release came on the heels of last year’s A Moon Shaped Pool, the band’s first new album in five years, which was supported by a full-blown world tour and marked Radiohead’s first performances since 2012. The band’s sound has gone through various transformations over the years—from angst-ridden radio smashes to electronic music to classical and jazz influences, to extensive looping and sampling—though Yorke’s distinctively haunting falsetto consistently leading the way. In honor of Thom Yorke’s 49th, take a look back at some of the band’s biggest performances from different eras, including their landmark performances at the UK’s prestigious Glastonbury Festival in 1997, 2003, and 2011, as well as their American festival debut at last year’s Lollapalooza. Full show videos and setlists can be found below.
