Live at the Astoria is a live concert video from English alternative rock group Radiohead's concert at the London Astoria venue on 27 May 1994, released on 13 March 1995 to VHS, and later to DVD in 2005.[1]

The concert is notable for its collection of songs being heard then for the first time. These songs would not appear until the release of The Bends, ten months later.[2] It is Radiohead's only concert home video to date, not including the From the Basement DVD which is a live performance recorded in a studio rather than in front of an audience.[3]

It is also notable for the performance of "My Iron Lung", the instrumentation of which was used as the basis for the studio version of the song.[4]

Release[edit]

The DVD edition of Live At The Astoria, digitally restored and remastered, was released on 21 November 2005 in Europe and on 22 November 2005 in North America.[5]

To be included on the bonus discs of the collector's editions of Pablo Honey and The Bends, the concert was split between the two. "You", "Ripcord", "Creep", "Prove Yourself", "Vegetable", "Stop Whispering", "Anyone Can Play Guitar", "Pop is Dead" and "Blow Out" were included on the re-release of Pablo Honey. Whereas "Bones", "Black Star", "The Bends", "My Iron Lung", "Maquiladora", "Fake Plastic Trees" "Just", and "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" on the re-release of The Bends.
