Radiohead will play their first concert since the release of their latest album The King of Limbs tonight at the Glastonbury festival in England. The band's appearance at the festival has been kept a secret until this morning, when it was revealed that the quintet will perform at 8 p.m. on the Park Stage in between sets by Big Audio Dynamite and Caribou, and at the same time as performances by Morrissey and Mumford & Sons on other stages. Shortly after Radiohead's set is finished, U2 will play a headlining show on the main stage.

Radiohead are very likely to debut several selections from The King of Limbs in tonight's concert, as well as new tunes like the Record Store Day single "Supercollider" and "Staircase," which they released to the internet earlier this week. Fans of Radiohead's earlier work should take heart – the band almost always make a point of playing a number of their hits.
