Radiohead @ Madison Square Garden 7/26/16

Hey it's the first concert post in a while! I first saw Radiohead live way back in 2001 (long before this blog existed) and then I got to see them a second time in 2003. Both times were at Madison Square Garden and both were amazing shows. Radiohead has long been one of my favorite bands but unfortunately, I hadn't had a good chance to see them live again in over a decade.

Now, over 10 years later, I was able to see them once again at the Garden and it was worth the wait. They sound more energetic than ever, and with so many more unique albums now in their discography, there were various different styles throughout tonight's show. It seriously felt like seeing 5 different bands in one concert - and all 5 bands rocked.

The set list is below but highlights including hearing "Let Down" live for the first time ever, the live version of "Burn the Witch" being better than the album version, and hearing "No Surprises" live for the third time (it NEVER gets old).
  1. Burn the Witch
  2. Daydreaming
  3. Decks Dark
  4. Desert Island Disk
  5. Ful Stop
  6.  Lotus Flower
  7. The National Anthem
  8. 15 Step
  9. No Surprises
  10. Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief
  11. Separator
  12. Planet Telex
  13. The Numbers
  14. 2 + 2 = 5
  15. Everything in Its Right Place
  16. Myxomatosis
  17. Idioteque
  18. Let Down
  19. Present Tense
  20. Paranoid Android
  21. Nude
  22. Bodysnatchers
  23. Bloom
  24. Street Spirit (Fade Out)
Enjoy this awesome quality video from a superfan on Youtube. I'd sure love a full recording of this show if anyone's got one...
