Actors Michael C. Hall + Lena Hall to Helm Radiohead Tribute Concert in NYC
Dexter actor Michael C. Hall and Broadway actress Lena Hall (who are not related) will helm a Radiohead tribute concert in New York City later this month.
The two actors previously starred opposite one another in the play, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, between 2014 and 2015. Now, they will team up once again during the “Radiohead: Obsessed” tribute show. They plan to cover cuts across Radiohead’s entire catalog, from their 1993 debut Pablo Honey to 2011’s The King of Limbs. The concert will take place at Café Carlyle in New York on March 19.
Lena Hall also fronts the band, the Deafening, and as the New York Times reports, she has covered Radiohead on a number of occasions. Michael C. Hall recently starred in David Bowie’s musical, Lazarus, just before the English singer's death in January. (Incidentally, Hall does a great Bowie impersonation.)
Radiohead are expected to follow up The King of Limbs with their ninth full-length in the very near future. While that album continues to elude us all, the English alt-rockers have plans to play several festivals this summer, including Lollapalooza Berlin, Osheaga, Primavera Sound, NOS Alive and OpenAir St. Gallen.
