RH at the Beck gig

by Jonathan on September 3, 2002

Here’s an article from CDNow about Radiohead showing up at the recent Beck show in Los Angeles:

Last week, New York may have had the VMAs, but L.A. had Beck, whose sold-out show on Friday (Aug. 30) at the intimate Wadsworth Theater gave those pesky folks at MTV a run for their star-power wattage.
Celebs literally took over the whole venue — spotted towards the front was a veritable convention of Hollywood’s young it-listers, including Giovanni Ribisi, Jason Lee, and Rachel Weisz. Hanging out on the sides were Ben Stiller and Tom Hanks’ wife, Rita Wilson (not together, silly!), while uberproducer Jon Brion and his celeb plus-two (that would be Fiona Apple and beau Paul Thomas Anderson) held court right in the middle of the theater.
By far the coolest star sighting, though, were all five members of Radiohead, fresh from a European tour, giving Beck a standing ovation for his subdued encore run-through of Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning.” Instead of leaving right after the song, Thom Yorke and Co. just stood there looking stunned before being whisked by security into the backstage area.
