Radiohead Victoria Park 25th June 2008

Saw Radiohead last night for the 4th time. Bat for Lashes were supporting and were really good.

It was a bit weird at the beginning as it was still light when they came on, and the atmosphere was a bit flat for some reason, but it soon picked up. We seemed to be in the best part of the crowd. It was like 40,000 people standing still and then the hundred or so where we were going mental which was good.

Thom was pretty entertaining too. The crowd were so into it that people weren’t just singing along, they were actually singing the harmonys to some songs. Radiohead fans are pretty sophisticated.

People singing along is one thing. Singing once the band has stopped playing is pretty impressive too, but this crowd was singing once the band had left the stage. 40,000 people singing Karma Police, with no conductor and no instruments is pretty amazing.

Here’s the set list:

01 Reckoner
02 15 Step
03 There There
04 All I Need
05 Lucky
06 Nude
07 Arpeggi
08 Myxomatosis

10 Faust Arp
11 No Surprises
12 Jigsaw Falling Into Place
13 Optimistic
14 Videotape
15 Everything In Its Right Place
16 Idioteque
17 Bodysnatchers

Encore 1:
18 House of Cards
19 The Bends
20 Bangers ‘n Mash
21 My Iron Lung
22 Karma Police

Encore 2
23 Go Slowly
24 2+2=5
25 Paranoid Android

  1. was a awesome gig, the setlist was decent and 25 songs is pretty decent too, amazingly good live, Thom’s vocals are spot on through the entire gig, i just had fun singing to the top of my voice out of tune and dancing in my own little world, hehe. also ladies toilets hmmmmmm.
