During the thick of the coronavirus pandemic in early April, Radiohead began streaming the crème de la crème of their archival concerts on YouTube, plucked from the band’s extensive Radiohead Public Library archive.

When the band announced the series, they explained that they would continue uploading archival footage “until either the restrictions resulting from current situation are eased, or we run out of shows.”

As coronavirus restrictions start lifting across the UK, the series is coming to an end, “for now, at least”.

“Many thanks for watching,” Radiohead shared in an announcement on Instagram. “The esteemed government of the United Kingdom has deemed it time to ease lockdown. We will of course see how that goes. See you later. Or possibly sooner.”

The final instalment of the series is a full set from 1997 at France’s Eurockéennes festival. Performed on the heels of the release of their seminal record OK Computer. The set saw a bunch of the album’s beloved cuts like ‘Airbag’, ‘Talk Show Host’ and ‘Just’, woven in with other delectable discography cuts.

The performance will premiere on Thursday, July 2nd at 10 pm UK time.

Last month, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien revealed that the band were planning the follow up to their 2016 record, A Moon Shaped Pool. 

“That last record was a lot of old songs,” he detailed in an interview with Guitar World, “which explains the different eras of Radiohead it might have sounded like. It will definitely happen, but when that is, I have no idea…”
