As a person who's favorite Radiohead songs are something like (in chronological order):

 
You
Creep
Stop Whispering
Thinking About You
Ripcord
Prove Yourself
LURGEE
Planet Telex
The Bends
High and Dry
FAKE PLASTIC TREES
Just
Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was
Black Star
Sulk
Fade Out (Street Spirit)
Airbag
Paranoid Android
Subterranean Homesick Alien
Karma Police
ELECTIONEERING
No Surprises
How to Disappear Completely
Treefingers
In Limbo
IDIOTEQUE
Motion Picture Soundtrack
15 Step
Weird Fishes (but not Arpeggi)
All I Need
RECKONER
Lotus Flower
CODEX
Give Up the Ghost
Separator


and not the world's greatest Radiohead fan, I'm kind of glad I looked at the setlists for the shows before attending tonight (and I'm not trying to be a dick to those of you who can't attend), because it's not looking like it's going to be chock full of my favorites.

Not sitting there waiting and wondering if they'll play songs I love, I can enjoy more what I'm hearing, ya'dig?

But I am pretty damn excited about going. I haven't been to a concert in a few months, and I do love Caribou's Swim, plus, fuck, I get to watch Thom Yorke dance in person. Does it get better?

Lurgee, Fake Plastic Trees and Electioneering are some of my favourite Radiohead songs as well, but I had long given up on hearing those live.

I just really like old Radiohead a lot, what can I say?

This is likely going to be the first of many times I see them, marrying a big fan and all, so maybe once they reach their old man phase of playing THE HITS I'll be able to get a setlist of the classics. lol.

Not really, no.

My sister's favorite RH record is Pablo Honey. She knew she would not hear any of it, and precious little if any from the next two. But she is very cool, and without ever having gone online and argued with rabid fans about setlists, without even having gone to a lot of concerts or anything, her comment after the show was: "Why would a band want to go back and play all those old songs when they're in such a different place now? They're true artists. They're not a greatest hits band." Then she went back and looked at PH/Bends videos and said, "Wow, they were so angry then. They have a completely different energy now. I love those early songs but Radiohead today are at their absolute best."

Hope you love it.

I really respect them as artists for not pandering to the masses and making Creep, High & Dry, Fake Plastic Trees, Just, Karma Police, No Surprises etc main parts of their setlists. They truly are in a different place now, just as U2 are not the same band as they were when they wrote "Pride", and they certainly don't play that with the same conviction as they did in 1984.

However, I think Fake Plastic Trees is one of the greatest, most beautiful songs ever written, and would LOVE to hear it live.

Furthermore, after watching that Bonnaroo performance, I am absolutely KICKING myself for not just going to the Cleveland concert by myself when my friend had to cancel on me at last minute and I couldn't find a replacement on such short notice. If they ever tour the US again, I absolutely WILL be there, and I don't care if I have to go by myself like a loser.

I went to the Phoenix show alone and sat beside a cute guy who had flown in from LA to also see them alone. I'm pretty sure neither of us felt like losers. But I guess it's weird if you're not used to doing that. I'm sorry your shows have gotten screwed up. I know how that feels.

I used to feel that way, Acrobat, but honestly sometimes I prefer going by myself sometimes.

One of the reviews of the Seattle show I read had a whine about how they didn't play any of their hits.

I was agog. Hits? You mean, uh Creep? The song they haven't played in umpteenity years? I suppose he could have been thinking of Karma Police or even something off The Bends, but my main thought was "what the hell band do you think you're seeing?"
