Radiohead Live Performances
Radiohead, an alternative rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, have had concerts and other live performances in Europe, North America, Australia, Asia and South America. The band's line-up has been constant since its founding, consisting of Thom Yorke (vocals and guitar), Jonny Greenwood (guitar), Ed O'Brien (guitar), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar), and Phil Selway (drums). The role that each band member plays during performances has changed dramatically throughout the band's history.
Radiohead was founded under the name On a Friday in 1986 and performed local shows in the Oxford area under this name until 1991. Radiohead toured extensively across the United States and Europe in support of their debut album, Pablo Honey, and in spite of conflict that arose within the band during this time their performances were credited for the relative success of Pablo Honey and their debut single "Creep". Radiohead toured widely in support of The Bends and its singles, but the album did not perform as well commercially as its predecessor had.

Famous quotes containing the words performances and/or live:
“At one of the later performances you asked why they called it a miracle,
Since nothing ever happened. That, of course, was the miracle
But you wanted to know why so much action took on so much life
And still managed to remain itself, aloof, smiling and courteous.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“There is not a more prudent maxim, than to live with ones enemies as if they may one day become ones friends; as it commonly happens, sooner or later, in the vicissitudes of political affairs.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
