Having postponed a brace of European dates in the wake of June’s dreadful stage collapse incident in Toronto, Radiohead have resumed their world tour.

At the tail end of their set in Nimes, France, the band paid tribute to Scott Johnson, the drum tech who lost his life in the incident. Images of Johnson were broadcast on giant screens as the band performed In Rainbows cut ‘Reckoner’, as the following shot from @fittr_happier illustrates:

Intriguingly, the band also used the date to give Kid A‘s ‘Treefingers’ a long overdue live airing. Even though Kid A is now twelve years old, AtEaseWeb claim that the ambient track had never been performed before. Video footage of the track is available below. [via Consequence Of Sound]

The band had postponed seven dates as a result of damage sustained during the collapse, during which three others were also injured. Ticker Tape Touring LLP, Radiohead’s touring company, are currently among the companies being investigated by the Canadian authorities for their role in the tragedy
