Radiohead came out and did their thing Friday night at Bonnaroo and gave us a performance of the ages. It was my first time witnessing the amazing stage and light show that Radiohead have created for this tour. What a sight it is. Crazy to think that it was 4 years ago that I saw Radiohead at my first ever music festival: All Points West.
Most of the night stayed true to The King Of Limbs, but the band went backwards to bring back classics like “There, There”, “Everything In Its Right Place “, “You and Whose Army”, “The Gloaming”. The biggest surprise was that the band treated us to “Karma Police”, a song that holds a special place in my heart, as it was one of the first Radiohead songs that I truly loved as a kid.
Thom was chattier than normal, and gave us a hint towards a possible future collaboration with Jack White, as he dedicated “Supercollider” to him and thanked him, telling us that he wouldn’t tell us why, but that we would soon find out.
“Paranoid Android” wrapped things up in it’s natural epic fashion, and it left me already waiting for my next chance to see Radiohead.
