Thom Yorke Performs ‘Like Spinning Plates’ At Solo Concert In Atlanta


Thom Yorke ended his concert at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre on Sunday with his first solo version of Radiohead classic “Like Spinning Plates” since 2010. Yorke was greeted with cheers of “Happy Birthday” by the crowd in Atlanta on the eve of his 51st birthday and responded by offering the solo rendition of the song from Radiohead’s 2001 album, Amnesiac.

The Radiohead frontman is currently on the road with Nigel Godrich and Tarik Barri for a North American tour. Yorke and company split the focus of last night’s setlist between songs from each of Thom’s solo albums: the recently released Anima, his 2006 debut The Eraser and 2014’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes. The show also featured performances of “Amok” and “Default” from Yorke and Godrich’s time in supergroup Atoms For Peace and “Has Ended” off Thom’s 2018 soundtrack for Luca Guadagnino’s horror film, Suspiria.

Yorke went at it alone and sat at the piano for Sunday’s performance of “Like Spinning Plates.” Thom last played the song at a solo concert way back in 2010 as per Setlist.FM.
