Radiohead have followed the lead of bands around the world by announcing a series of weekly live shows for fans to enjoy while staying at home.

Much like Metallica a few weeks back, Radiohead have decided to kick things off with an iconic Irish show. Taking to social media last night, the band told followers that they will be presenting a series of weekly gigs on their YouTube channel, starting from tonight (Thursday, April 9).

First up will be A Tent In Dublin, a run of three shows which took place in October 2000 at Punchestown Racecourse, despite the name. The gigs were performed in the same month that Radiohead released their fourth studio album Kid A and fans will be able to watch the gig in full from 10pm tonight on YouTube.

The link for tonight's stream can be found here and already the nostalgic comments are pouring in, with one user saying 'still have my ticket stub stuck on the fridge, looking forward to seeing this' and another adding  'this show was amazing- though which Radiohead show isn't- and I can't wait to watch!'

What a way to kick off the long weekend Radiohead fans. Don't forget, it starts at 10pm, and that link again can be found here.
