The Smile: Live Broadcast at Magazine London


From Friday 28th to Sunday 30th January, The Smile played three consecutive live shows within twenty-four hours to a global audience live from BWL’s Magazine London. 


Last weekend Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and multi-instrumentalist John Greenwood alongside Sons of Kemet’s Tom Skinner delivered a music masterpiece to a global audience live from BWL’s Magazine London. A small selection of guests attended the performances in person, while a larger portion of the audience watched via the stream and a select few cinemas. The visual presentation was as mesmerising as the musical performance with the subtle set design referencing the lockdowns in which the songs were conceived. The performances bought together a live show, live stream and a cinematic film, captured by award-winning director Paul Dugdale. Watch the highlights footage below. 

"The most striking thing about this concert, from the venue to the music, was that it was all so unfamiliar"
