Tradiohead return to Smithfield to play their final Dublin show. Expect to hear songs from classic albums like OK Computer, Kid A, The Bends, as well as fan favourites from the likes of Hail To The Thief, Amnesiac and In Rainbows.
No surprises? Well, not quite. Tradiohead take the songs of Radiohead and re-imagine them using instruments more often associated with Irish traditional music. Tradiohead are Jimi McDonnell on vocals, Philip Fogarty on accordion and bodhrán, Pat Hargan on guitar and Michael Chang on violin, viola and mandolin.
What started out as a pun soon turned into a re-working of some of the most lauded songs in popular music. Occupy Oxford, if you will. Last year, the band played the Electric Picnic and Culture Night in Belfast. They have also featured in Hot Press Magazine and Tom Dunne’s Newstalk show.
