Frank Turner to Radiohead: Play Creep at Concerts

Frank Turner to Radiohead:  Play Creep at Concerts
Posted May 9th, 2014 @ 10:45am

Radiohead infamously refuses to play their biggest hit, Creep, at their concerts.  The last known time the band played the song was in 2009 at the Reading Festival.

That actually does not bother many of Radiohead's biggest fans.  But, it does not sit well with Frank Turner.

Turner tells Gigwise:

"What we do, is we're entertainers, at the end of the day. It's like the whole Radiohead not playing 'Creep' thing. You are entertainers because you've charged people £40 to be here, and it's not going to kill you to take three minutes out of your setlist to play the one song that everyone wants to hear. Just fucking play it. You'll make everybody's night.  There's something kind of petty about not playing it to me. The world is full of bands that wish they had one song that everyone wanted to hear, you've got one, enjoy it."
