Radiohead in London Night 2 – setlist and notes

Objectively, this was a brilliant setlist, the pick of the tour so far. But to be honest, I’ve enjoyed them all equally. The band’s back catalogue of thirty years of songs is so strong …

 

 

  1. Burn The Witch
  2. Daydreaming
  3. Decks Dark
  4. DID
  5. Ful Stop
  6. Airbag
  7. Kid A (tour debut)
  8. Separator
  9. No Surprises
  10. Glass Eyes (live debut)
  11. Pyramid Song
  12. National Anthem
  13. The Numbers
  14. Identikit
  15. Myxomatosis
  16. Idioteque
  17. Street Spirit

[End of Main Set]

[Encore 1]

  1. Bloom
  2. Present Tense
  3. EIIRP
  4. Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief
  5. Arpeggi

[Encore 2]

  1. Bodysnatchers
  2. Karma Police

 

Anyway, look at the 7 song sequence in the middle of this set – from Airbag through to National Anthem. That was a brilliant sequence.

I loved hearing Glass Eyes live – this had been on my wish list, and again, I had resigned myself to not hearing it because it’s a tough one to reproduce live. But the live version is fantastic. I will post a video in due course.

The atmosphere in the hall was terrific, the most intense so far – a Friday night London crowd hyped up by reviews of the first night like this, this and this. Thom was even cockier than the night before, milking the applause and – right at at the end – leading the audience in their own encore of the final verse of Karma Police as the rest of the band stood off stage.

Awesome.
