While Radiohead may be one of the biggest bands in the world right now, they’re not immune to the odd mistake. At last night’s headline show at London’s Roundhouse, Johnny Greenwood proved he was a human like the rest of us, accidentally playing the wrong synthesiser noise during “Nude”.

As Greenwood made the mistake, Tom Yorke pointed his finger at the guitarist, amusing the audience who gave a loud cheer.

Yorke proceeded to ask the audience "You in a hurry?”, while Greenwood got things back on track, the band eventually picking up where they left off.

A clip of the moment has emerged online, the mistake happening at around the 42-second mark, the full song starting around 2.05.

The Roundhouse show was the first of three sold out night’s at the venue, the band playing for over two and a half hours, including two encores. The setlist included the debut of the tracks “Exit Music (For A Film)”, “Planet Telex” and “Myxomatosis” on this world tour.

Earlier on in the week, Radiohead shocked fans in France by playing a surprise rendition of their song “Creep” - the first time they’ve performed the song since 2009 at Reading Festival. Read our review of their Roundhouse show, here.
