Radiohead 2012 World Tour: Leg 1 breakdown

Radiohead 2012 World Tour: Leg 1 breakdown

Now that Radiohead have completed the first leg of their 2012 tour, we thought it might be interesting to take a closer look at what the band has played through the first ten shows of the year (the numbers below exclude the Austin City Limits taping). We’re also tracking every song’s performance on our 2012 Tour Songs page which will be continually updated throughout the year.

10 shows
Miami, Tampa, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Austin, St. Louis, Kansas City, Broomfield, Glendale

43 different songs played
(including Hunting Bears and True Love Waits snippets)

Longest show: 24 songs (Miami and Dallas)
Shortest show: 22 songs (Kansas City)
The remaining seven shows all featured 23 songs

Album Breakdown
To organize some of these numbers into meaningful-ish groups I’ve created a group for the material Radiohead have released since The King of Limbs (TKOL+), B-sides/Other (including These Are My Twisted Words), and then all the new songs. 1/12 means one song from that album’s twelve songs were played.

Pablo Honey – 0/12
The Bends – 1/12
OK Computer – 5/12
Kid A – 5/10
Amnesiac – 4/11 (including Hunting Bears)
Hail To The Thief – 3/14
In Rainbows – 7/10
The King Of Limbs – 8/8
The King Of Limbs+ – 3/4
B-sides/Other – 3
New Songs – 3

Identikit: 9 performances (debuted in Miami; played at every show but Broomfield)
Cut A Hole: 2 performances (debuted in Miami)

  • Haha I love the reports including whether or not thom is wearing red pants…too funny…nice read

    • The statistics set new standards

  • should have said Appearances by the Red Pants: 2 (debuted in Miami) 🙂

    • But the Red Pants made their debut years ago… 😛

  • St Louis rocked. Hope to see you again in Chicago Radiohead. Thanks.

  • I wonder why they haven’t played anything from Pablo Honey. Anyone willing to speculate?

    • I’m willing to speculate that Pablo Honey kinda blows and they seldom play anything from it.

    • Save blow out…that would be cool live…

    • I was thinking that also, but was willing to give them (& the album) the benefit of the doubt.

  • […] AtEase publicó hoy una suerte de estadística sobre la primera parte de este Tour 2012, que ha tenido a la banda tocando por diferentes ciudades de EEUU. En esta lista, de diez shows, se incluye la presentación televisiva de Austin City Limits, la cual aún no tiene fecha de estreno confirmada, pero se rumorea que podría salir al aire en octubre de este año. […]

  • Wait, what bends song was played?

    • Street Spirit !

  • I hope they will also play Go To Sleep, Coke Babies, I Will and 4 Minute Warning. I hope they stop playing Staircase (mediocre) en Feral, the only weak track on TKOL.

    • 4 Minute Warning over Staircase for godsake? I cant stand 4 Minute Warning, its as bad as Separator. But thats just my opinion and its as good as yours. Peace Andy! 😀

  • Ummm…it seems if the red pants are present the show will be longer and more awesome than usual. I’m thankful I got to be in one of those appearances.

  • Nice work!!

    (However, didn’t the Westboro Baptist protest “debut” in Colorado?)

    • It was definitely KC.

  • I’ve still got fingers crossed for ‘The Butcher’ live in Berlin/London (the shows i’ve got) and/or Kinetic/Worrywort.

    Skirting on the surface would be a good treat too!

  • this might be the best tour they have had in a long time. probably since Kid A was released….you dont really know what you are going to get at each show.

  • Great Stats!!!

  • OMG Indentikit is the best! Fangasm!

  • does anyone know of an identikit mp3 besides the tampa one with the annoying girl in the beginning saying “wait, he doesnt want to switch now”

    • Download it from YouTube and convert it to mp3…listen to is pretty good…

    • my b

    • cool thx

  • I can’t wait to hear a recorded version of Identikit

  • i’d go with more OKC tracks as ‘noticable absences’ too…The Tourist/Let Down/SHO/Exit Music and No Surprises. I’m hoping all of these will make appearances sometime during leg 2 of the tour:) (We Suck Young Blood too…and maybe JUST maybe Black Star)*

  • “Appearances by the Red Pants: 2”

    Cheers, Sean, for tracking the important things. 😀

  • Skirting on the Surface is truly fantastic. Can’t wait to see them in Camden. I’ve no complaints on set lists so far. Very exciting indeed


    Perfect setlist. Never gonna happen though.

  • Have they played separator yet?

  • really hope a full band performance of the present tense makes it debut sometime.
