Thom Yorke at The Fox Theater, Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke performed an intimate concert at The Fox Theater in Oakland, this past Thursday, December 14th. Fans lined up for several blocks, eager to enter the venue and secure a spot near the stage for Yorke’s 10 PM set time.

As expected, Yorke handled vocal, guitar and keyboard duties for the majority of the tracks, with longtime producer Nigel Godrich providing accompaniment on keys and guitar. Live visuals were provided by visual artist Tarki Barri and extended across a three-panel backdrop.

For an artist with such a rabid fanbase and significant body of work, Yorke was particularly humble, just bowing briefly to the audience, and then diving into his set. Kicking off the show with ‘Interference’ from his 2014 solo album, ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’, Yorke also played new, previously unheard solo tracks, as well as tracks from his supergroup, ‘Atoms for Peace’.
