Radiohead have announced they will be uploading archived live shows to their YouTube channel every week until lockdown ends.

Kicking off on Thursday April 9th at 10pm, the new upload schedule will keep fans entertained during this quarantine period and begins with the band’s ‘Live From a Tent In Dublin’ performance, which took place at Punchestown Racecourse in 2000.

A statement posted to their Instagram account read: “Now that you have no choice whether or not you fancy a quiet night in, we hereby present the first of several weekly live shows coming to Radiohead’s @YouTube channel.”

“We will be releasing one a week until either the restrictions resulting from current situation are eased, or we run out of shows. Which will be first? No-one knows.” they added.

The band’s guitarist Ed O’Brien had previously been self-isolating after experiencing flu-like symptoms that were similar to those of Covid-19.

He has since posted a video message stating his full recovery, adding: “I just want to send love and strength to all of you that are going through it at the moment, love and strength to our NHS, our amazing NHS and all our health workers and everybody who’s been amazing.”
