Tonight Radiohead kicked off their North American tour, their first proper tour in support of The King of Limbs, which was released just over a year ago. The first date took place at Miami’s American Airlines Arena and as expected the set was very TKOL-heavy, but for fans of their older material they included “The National Anthem,” “Kid A,” “There There” and “Airbag” amongst others.
Super fans will be bewildered to hear that they played OK Computer era b-side “Meeting In The Aisle” live for the first time, as well as a couple of new songs called “Identikit” and “Cut A Hole.” Also, although it wasn’t played on this occasion, it looks like we will soon get “Skirting on the Surface,” accoring to this rehearsal setlist, a song that Thom played solo a few times while touring with Atoms For Peace (video here).
Check out videos of “Identikit” and “Cut A Hole” below.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
