Radiohead was among the headliners at Bonnaroo in 2006 and repeated the feat on The Farm in Manchester, Tennessee six years later in 2012. Pro-shot video of both sets are available and featured as this week’s Full Show Friday selections.

The JamBase Live Video Archive (JBLVA) contains over 140 Radiohead videos dating all the way back to 1993. Most of the videos, including the footage of the band’s Bonnaroo sets, have been tracked out to allow viewers to skip to the song they want to watch.

June 17, 2006

Radiohead’s June 17, 2006 performance at Bonnaroo is one of the most storied sets of the band’s career. It’s not just fans that have an appreciation for the group’s 28-song concert. “Filmed in 2006 in Tennessee it’s easily, comfortably, the best festival experience I’ve ever had in America,” guitarist Jonny Greenwood tweeted in May when the band announced a broadcast of the set as part of their At Home With Radiohead live archival video series. “I hope the heat, dust, and smell of fine southern whiskey comes over as well as the songs – and that we all get back to live music soon.”

The band treated the approximately 90,000 attendees on hand to a mix of classic material as well as songs that were new at the time. Six of the tunes played by Radiohead at Bonnaroo 2006 would get the studio treatment the next year on their In Rainbows album including “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi,” “15 Step” and “Nude.” While Radiohead’s debut album, 1993’s Pablo Honey, wasn’t represented as part of the group’s Bonnaroo setlist, they did play three songs from 1995’s The Bends, six off 1997’s OK Computer, five from 2000’s The Bends and four a piece featured on 2001’s Amnesiac and 2003’s Hail To The Thief.

June 8, 2012

On June 8, 2012, Radiohead returned to The Farm for another masterful performance. Once again, the band went heavy on new songs and this time they showed off the latest addition to the lineup, percussionist Clive Deamer. The festival appearance came during a tour in support of 2011’s The King Of Limbs. Radiohead played six of the LP’s eight tracks live at Bonnaroo. Additionally, the Brits performed the three-month-old “Identikit,” which would appear on A Moon Shaped Pool in 2016.

Frontman Thom Yorke was in a talkative mood and dedicated “Supercollider” to Jack White and “Reckoner” to fellow headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers. Other highlights include a singalong “Karma Police,” a version of “Everything In Its Right Place” featuring a “True Love Waits” intro and the “Paranoid Android” finale. Yorke dedicated the evening’s last song to “all the people we can’t see in the back.”
