The song got its first full-band runout at their North American tour opener in Chicago.

Radiohead kicked off their North American tour in Chicago this weekend (7th July) and gave their rejected Bond theme ‘Spectre’ its first full band performance as part of the show.

Thom Yorke has been playing the song at his recent live shows, but last night saw its first performance by Radiohead.

The set held another surprise too - the band played ‘Blow Out’, from 1993 debut album ‘Pablo Honey’, for the first time in over a decade.

The band’s North American tour continues this week with three(!) performances at New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden.
