Radiohead played their first live show since breaking in the aftermath of their drum tech's death from the stage collapse at a Toronto show. The band paid tribute with the song "Reckoner" during one of the encores, as well as playing "Treefingers" live for the first time live. Fan site AtEaseWeb was there and had this to say:

"Lucky opens a show for the first time since 1998 (obviously a reaction to Toronto) and Treefingers, a song most assumed would never be played live, gets its live debut. Given the circumstances, that first encore looks like it would have been pretty intense. Videotape was played for just the second time this year.

For the final encore song of Reckoner, Thom thanked the crew and dedicated the song to “our friend Scott.” An emotional end to what was certainly an emotional night for the band. In addition, Scott’s photo was displayed throughout Reckoner."
