Radiohead kick off their World Tour in Miami tonight. Join us for a live report later today
The first leg of The King Of Limbs Tour will take the band through the USA first. The dates for Australia and New Zealand (November) have dates were announced yesterday. So, this will keep us busy for a while.
First stop is the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida, where Other Lives opened at 7:30 pm, playing till 8:05 pm.
At 8:40, lights go down…band comes on with Clive Deamer. IMPORTANT NOTE: Thom Yorke is sporting a ponytail. The back wall behind the band looks like hundreds of empty bottles.

And that’s it for tonight. So, two new songs, the live debut of a fifteen year old b-side, all of TKOL except Little By Little and only three songs from the 90s (none of which are from The Bends). Not a bad start to the 2012 tour. Personally, I really hope they keep that Feral/Idioteque pairing going. Next show in Tampa!
In other news, apparently ticket sales were problematic in Australia.
Updates on the setlist will appear here (Sean has office duty tonight, Adriaan will be at the venue), as well as on Twitter via @RadioheadNews and track by track on @RadioheadLive. Got pictures or anything else, hook us up via those twitter accounts.
