Radiohead updates: Saturday Night Live, Colbert Report, New York shows

Radiohead have been busy this past week with live performances on Saturday Night Live, The Colbert Report and two sold-out shows at the Roseland Ballroom in New York.

Saturday Night Live

Radiohead kicked off a new season of Saturday Night Live on SNL performing Lotus Flower, their first single from the King of Limbs album released earlier this year. The band were joined by new recruit Clive Deamer on drums and debuted ‘Staircase’, which is found on their From The Basement Sessions.

Colbert Report

Radiohead were the main hosts of a one hour special of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, the band played the unreleased track The Daily Mail, which currently only exists in live form, and tracks from The King Of Limbs (Bloom, Codex, Little By Little and Good Morning Mr. Magpie) and Kid A (The National Anthem). Due to restrictions the performances are very hard to find outside of the US.
