Radiohead’s 2012 tour continues tonight with a headlining slot at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee. The band previously played the festival in 2006 (that link is slightly 404) and played one of the longest shows of their career (28 songs).
Tonight the band are scheduled to play for two hours (from 10pm to midnight CDT) but, given the spirit of Bonnaroo, they may extend their set beyond that. The best part is you’ll be able to watch the gig as it is being streamed live on YouTube.
We’ll of course be updating this post live as the show happens as well as updating our Twitter feed so even if you’re not watching you still won’t escape Radiohead’s reach.
And we’re off…

11 Morning Mr Magpie
13 Lotus Flower

18 You And Whose Army?
19 House Of Cards
20 Supercollider (dedicated to Jack White)
22 True Love Waits/Everything In Its Right Place
23 Give Up The Ghost
25 Paranoid Android
At 25 songs and 2 hours and 20 minutes, this was Radiohead’s longest show of the year (topping Miami’s 24 song set on the opening night of the tour). Radiohead seem to always rise to the occasion at Bonnaroo.
Also of note, in his dedication of Supercollider to Jack White, Thom hinted that they had done something with Jack on Thursday. Now given that Jack White’s Third Man Records studio/shop/dreamatorium is located in nearby Nashville, I don’t think it’s completely unreasonable to assume that Radiohead may have recorded a 7″ or a collaboration of some kind with Jack this week. Thom said we’d “find out later.” Already looking forward to it…whatever it turns out to be.
