Radiohead cover Pink Floyd’s ‘Money’ at Israel concert
Pink Floyd's Roger Waters previously called for the show to be cancelled
The iconic band played Tel Aviv’s Park HaYarkon this evening (July 19).
The show has faced numerous calls for cancellation, most notably from Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, who signed an open letter calling for the band to pull the concert. Radiohead singer Thom Yorke called the letter “extremely upsetting”, “offensive” and “an extraordinary waste of energy”, with Waters then responding, arguing that Yorke’s interview “needs a reply as it doesn’t tell the whole story”. Waters directed his response to the Radiohead frontman: “I have made every effort to engage with you personally, and would still like to have the conversation.”
Earlier this week, Waters hit back at Radiohead once more. Waters said: “We should observe the picket line. Anybody who’s tempted to do that, like our friends in Radiohead, if only they would actually educate themselves.”
He continued: “I know Thom Yorke’s been whining about how he feels insulted, people are suggesting he doesn’t know what’s going on”.
Now, presumably in response to the back and forth between Yorke and Waters, the band have reportedly covered Pink Floyd’s ‘Money’ at the Tel Aviv show.
Setlist.fm reports that the band played the track as part of their encore after ‘No Surprises’, ‘Like Spinning Plates’ and ‘Nude’.
The cover was followed by ‘Lotus Flower’ and ‘Paranoid Android’.
