If you can't get tickets to one of Radiohead's massive performances this summer, you might just find them playing a gig in your neighbor's backyard, and that's exactly what happened in Oxford over the weekend. Yeah, you read that correctly-- Thom Yorke, frontman of one of the most well-known bands in the world, surprised guests when he showed up to his neighbor's garden party and played some Radiohead classics.
Yorke played an acoustic version of "Reckoner" from the band's album, In Rainbows, along with some other hits during his half-hour performance. Aside from entertaining the crowd with guitar playing and singing, he also chitchatted with the partygoers and sipped some champagne.
Radiohead's pretty busy this summer, playing lots of summer festivals and promoting their latest album A Moon Shaped Pool, which was released last month.
In honor of their newest album, arriving on Spotify this Friday, June 17th, the band has been playing gigs at record stores worldwide and announced that on the 17th, they will be having a full-day event across the globe where fans can go to certain record stores and participate in the celebration.
Even with a jam-packed schedule right now, Yorke was still able to find some time to kick back and jam out with his neighbors.
