Radiohead were in France last night for their first performance since last month’s tragic stage collapse in Toronto, and in addition to some surprises in the set list—including the live debut of “Treefingers”—they payed tribute to Scott Johnson, the drum tech killed just minutes before the gates at Downsview Park were set to open to the public.
The tribute happened during the band’s third (!!!) encore. Photos from the event (taken by Twitter user @fittr_happier, via Consequence of Sound) show Johnson’s picture projected on screens behind the band while they played “Reckoner.”
