After uploading their expansive discography onto YouTube late last year and later making its “Library” of content for free, Radiohead has now announced that they will be uploading their renowned Bonnaroo 2006 set onto the video-sharing platform featuring the newly found original desk audio.
“Filmed in 2006 in Tennessee it’s easily, comfortably, the best festival experience I’ve ever had in America,” shared lead guitarist and keyboardist Jonny Greenwood. “I hope the heat, dust, and smell of fine Southern whiskey comes over as well as the songs — and I hope that we get back to live music soon.”
For those unfamiliar with the famed 2006 performance, Rolling Stone Senior Editor David Fricke once called it the “greatest concert ever,” with the set featuring a slew of material that called on the band’s 1995 album, The Bends, as well as select choices from 2000’s Kid A. They also debuted a variety of unreleased material, which went on to grace the band’s 2007 In Rainbows LP.
The performance goes live via YouTube at 5 p.m. EDT on May 6.
