  • yyeeeeiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hop they play a lot from all 7 albums!!!

  • I hope Liars started playing by now.

  • it should be hopE

  • Optimistic, HTDC and Exit Music! Yay for the people over there! I’m jealous 😛

  • At Ease is being funky!

  • ahaha, I love how everyone was totally wrong on the opening track.

  • boy i’m excited!

  • bulletproof O M G

  • if they don’t play paranoid android at the VA show i’m gonna freak out. they didn’t play it at the show i was at on the last tour. i need to see that song live.

  • I haven’t seen them since the original HTTT tour… have they really started pushing out Fake Plastic Trees and Paranoid Android from the setlist? There’s only 1 OKC song on there!

  • Exit Music is a perfect closer

  • YES!! They played “WIEAYB” Man can’t wait for tomorrow’s show @ tampa 😀

    so, never gonna be too late for LURGGE, uh?
    NEBODY GOT it?

  • ha ha
    thom is white and pale

  • […] first show of the tour, in Florida, has just finished. I won’t be able to catch the Boston show (or indeed any […]

  • Lack of PA (and OKC in general) is a bit odd. Like seriously, there’s more Bends tracks than OKC in that setlist.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with what was played. Don’t see anything that wouldn’t be a shame to remove IMO.

  • Ehh, Morning Bell could’ve been dropped for PA or Talk Show Host, but overall, it’s a fantastic set list. A little IR heavy, but that’s alright.

  • Bulletproof I wish I was… there!!
    Great show

  • […] Radiohead At Ease [In Rainbows] » Radiohead News Archive » Radiohead: Live in West Palm Beach [liv… Blogged with the Flock Browser […]

  • mmmmm a very weird set list, no open pick, no paranoid android,

  • Did you see those pics? Holy balls. I can’t wait for Thursday and Friday.

  • great great show. goosebumps.

    a little rusty on some songs, but hey- it happens. airbag rocked. all i need was a great opener. exit music and nude were beautiful.

  • I hope they play more In Rainbows than that. Already tired of the old stuff.

  • It was a GREAT night in WPB – I have NEVER seen so many people at that venue in all my years of attending shows. The Lawn was PACKED!!!

    And yes — so far, sadly, OKC seems to have been all but jettisoned. But it’s early days yet.

  • no pyramid song???

  • […] to Atease Radiohead had a soundcheck with Optimistic, Everything in its right place, All i need, […]

  • I like how they’ve switched things around here. It’s not good for the shows to be always so OKC intensive (unless they play The fucking Tourist of course!)

    Bulletproof! I’d love to hear a recording of that.

  • no just? no kid a?? no no surprises!????? no non no noonono noon oonon creep!?!?!?!? what’s wrong with you guys?? they did one show now and everybody’s wondering where some songs might be… fuck! they can’t play every song at every show! calm down…

  • cool.
    i’m glad no PA.
    i’m sure they are so tired of playing that.
    i hope Airbag stays in as i’ve never seen it (for Thom’s scream).
    i wish they’d pull out We Suck Young Blood.

  • shut up people ! thank you phil for a great pict i took with you – sorry to bother anyway – we ll se you again tonight at tampa – beautiful show –

  • I WAS THERE!!!! 3rd row!
    all i can say is: awesome. it was the second time i saw them play, actually in the same venue. the set list was absolutely perfect, i dont believe i have favorites among the bands many songs, but last night each song they played was my favorite, totally!
    the best thing was seeing Thom a few feet away from me, loosing control and dancing like the crazy dude he is…, i hope to repeat this experience very soon

  • nice setlist.
    Looking forward to photograph and seeing them in London

  • LEGENDARY!!!!!!!!!

    Seen them a few times and this was BY FAR the best performance.

  • Long set list! decent variety.

    Not much from OK Computer though.

    Jigsaw is the only In Rainbows song not played.

  • I really can’t believe they didn’t play jigsay. Not only the best song on IR, but a single for crying out loud! I hope to see jigsaw, my iron lung & lucky in stl. I read somewhere that they never play the same set twice.


  • what did they play in the soundcheck?

  • Could someone who went to the show report how long the full set + encores lasted? Thanks.

  • Id be pissed off if i went and they didnt play paranoid android. Not that its their best song… but its a great live song. That set list is a bit to chill-out for me.

  • Im sorry but if they dont play PA at Manchester Ill cry.

    Cry with tears of sadness.

  • After they sang Bangers and Mash, you noted this comment in your article:

    thom; “We spent three days at Miami Beach. Fucking hell. What’s going on there? Some kind of reconstruction! For once I was proud to white, pale and English.”

    What does that mean? Who said that? Was it Thom? I am scared that if Thom said this that it means that he isn’t who I thought he was. Can you describe the context in which this quote was stated?

  • WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What a setlist!!!!!!!!!!

  • No Paranoid Android? WTF?!

    Usually people go to concerts wanting to hear all the “hits” and get annoyed when the set-list is heavy on songs from the new album. Well, they can play every song on In Rainbows twice if they fancy!!

  • GREAT setlist despite no lucky/tourist

  • That concert was awesome!! I was there! The stage and the lights were spectacular! I just wished that they play Lucky or Paranoid Android, or at least more of the O.K. Computer but besides that! amazing show!

  • dia: “White pale and english” is quoted in the NY Times review and is presumed to be a reference to tanned, surgically modified people. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a misquote, since “some kind of reconstruction” sounds kind of odd. But Thom’s never shown any sign of racism, so I wouldn’t worry about that.

  • The New York show is going to suck because they’re playing 3 days and it has to be fewer songs because is a festival i only bought it for one day
    radiohead sucks

  • After the second encore, I left the building, but heard what sounded like Thom playing High and Dry and Fake Plastic Trees acoustic. Am I right? Did anyone see it?

  • if thom was referring to plastic surgery
    when he made the ‘reconstruction’
    reference then i think that’s AMAZING!!!
    i was there, and he definitely said
    ‘reconstruction.’ and now it makes more
    sense. thanks for the clarification
