Since we're all on lockdown without any concerts to attend, Radiohead are doing their part to keep live experiences relevant by uploading footage of the band's historical concerts to their YouTube page.

Starting tomorrow (April 9), the band will upload classic videos from the Radiohead Public Library on a weekly basis in an effort to make COVID-19-related isolation a little bit more enjoyable.

"Now that you have no choice whether or not you fancy a quiet night in, we hereby present the first of several LIVE SHOWS from the Radiohead Public Library now coming to Radiohead's YouTube channel," the band wrote in an Instagram post.

The first performance to premiere is "Live from a Tent in Dublin," which was actually recorded at Punchestown Racecourse, County Kildare, Ireland back on October 7, 2000 — just days after the release of Kid A. The streams will continue "until either the restrictions resulting from [the] current situation are eased, or we run out of shows."

"Which will be first? No-one knows," the band added.

The first instalment, a Dilly Gent-directed/produced concert film, will air live in the YouTube player below at 5 p.m. ET tomorrow.

Tune in here tomorrow, and see a teaser of what's to come in the Instagram video below.
