Radiohead On Austin City Limits
The groundbreaking PBS television series Austin City Limits (ACL), showcases a rare, full-hour performance from iconic British band Radiohead. The episode marks Radiohead's long awaited and unforgettable debut appearance, taking to the ACL stage for the first time. Viewers can tune in to WMHT TV Saturday, May 25, 2013 at 11pm to watch the legendary episode.
“Hi, we're Radiohead, we're pleased to meet you,” says the band's Thom Yorke by way of a greeting in their ACL debut. Taped in Austin before a concert audience at ACL's new home, The Moody Theater, the episode features an epic hour of music from one of the world's most acclaimed bands.
Drawing largely from their last three albums, The King of Limbs, In Rainbows and Hail to the Thief, and also touching on classics from Kid A and OK Computeras well as the odd obscure B side and rare andunreleased tracks, Radiohead blazes through some of their most daring material in a masterful eleven-song performance.
As the single most celebrated and influential alternative rock act of the past two decades, Radiohead’s musical legacy is undisputed. The band’s ACL set is a prime example of how its progressive sound and experimental structures have come to define them as masters of innovation in modern rock music, and nowhere is this more evident than in their peerless live show.
“As if there was any doubt, this rare full-hour performance by one of the most adventurous bands in rock music was well worth the wait,” says Terry Lickona, Executive Producer of Austin CityLimits. “Thom Yorke and the boys are on top of their game, and their exuberance on stage really comes across. They continue to amaze, whether it’s with an old classic, a new twist or an obscure track all butforgotten.”
This is Season 38 for Austin City Limits, the longest-running music series in American television history, and marks ACL's second season in its new home, ACL Live at The Moody Theater, in downtown Austin.
