As the band has been doing for most of the past few weeks, Radiohead is dipping into the vault once again for an archival concert stream that will go up on the band’s YouTube page Today, June 18, at 5 p.m. EDT/2 p.m. PDT.

The gig was filmed at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan on Oct. 5, 2008, and features nine selections from the album In Rainbows, which was the most recent album from Thom Yorke and the guys at the time of the concert.

Originally recorded for a television broadcast, the set list from the show was as follows:

15 Step
There There
All I Need
Pyramid Song
Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
The Gloaming
Faust Arp
Knives Out
Jigsaw Falling Into Place
Fake Plastic Trees

Like Spinning Plates
Paranoid Android
Everything in Its Right Place

Encore 2:
Go Slowly
My Iron Lung
How to Disappear Completely

This Radiohead stream comes after last week’s, a 2018 gig from Brazil, as well as previous entries including a 2008 full-album performance of In Rainbows, a trip back through time to 1994 when Thom Yorke and the guys were fledgling English rockers with only 1993’s Pablo Honey under their belt, prior to branching out in more experimental directions with later albums.

Previous weeks have seen several other trips to the archives, including a 2011 Live from the Basement performance, circa The King of Limbs:

This archival upload series has been a wealth of entertainment from Radiohead meant to pique fans’ interest while they’re at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
