Radiohead are in the process of organising a special “In Rainbows” concert for the BBC.

Bassist Colin Greenwood announced on Stuart Maconie and Mark Radcliffe’s Radio 2 show last night (January 24) that planning had just begun for the event.

Greenwood explained: “We only started talking about it yesterday in the meeting so we are getting some plans together to play a show and play some songs from the record for the BBC.”

The bassist also told 6Music’s Marc Riley how thrilled the band were with their performance at their tiny, free show at London’s 93 Feet East (January 16), saying: “It was like playing a little club, standing next to each other, we played “The Bends” and seeing my brother Jonny slashing through that song was just brilliant.”
