the last time they played it was at their home show in Oxford after 'amnesiac' if i'm not mistaken. do you think they hate their home crowd?

either way i guess they loved us or hated us just as much as their home crowd and either way it's pretty fucking cool that they played it.

The setlist, in order, was this:

01 2+2=5
02 sit down. stand up
03 paranoid android
04 kid a
05 backdrifts
06 morning bell
07 my iron lung
08 where i end and you begin
09 the gloaming
10 sail to the moon
11 climbimg up the walls
12 creep
13 like spinning plates
14 go to sleep
15 scatterbrain
16 the national anthem
17 there there

18 lucky
19 a punch-up at a wedding
20 airbag
21 everything in its right place

22 no surprises
23 idioteque

It's weird. Creep wasn't even played as the last song, like normal. And it was played at the concert before this in Japan. It might just be a regular set inclusion to this tour. They barely played it before, but they must have changed their feelings on it. And yeah, High and Dry is a song they never play anymore, as well as Let Down.

I hope the set is this good in Columbia. Though it's kind of hard to be 'bad.'

great.


finally There There pulled out as opener in favor of the MUCh better 2+2=5 (There There is my least favorite Radiohead song ever, what a weak melody going nowhere high)

after three years not anymore the Paranoid Android/Idioteque/Everything cliché



less Hail to the Thief songs for Kid A/ Amnesiac ones, which is a very good thing.
Climbing Up The Walls and Airbag back again (not played much on this tour)




Sit Down. Stand Up at the beginning instead at the end sounds sweet
Idioteque as closing must be astonishingly powerful

good in: Kid A
bad in: Wedding



overall, great to see them change again.
can't wait for the 15th of November


correct order setlist:

01 2+2=5
02 sit down. stand up
03 paranoid android
04 kid a
05 backdrifts
06 morning bell
07 my iron lung
08 where i end and you begin
09 the gloaming
10 sail to the moon
11 climbimg up the walls
12 creep
13 like spinning plates
14 go to sleep
15 scatterbrain
16 the national anthem
17 there there

encore #1:
18 lucky
19 a punch-up at a wedding
20 airbag
21 everything in its right place

encore #1:
22 no surprises
23 idioteque

Oh. I never leave my house so I don't know what they play. I was just going by what I remember other people on here saying before.

Actually, on a sattelite tv concert that I watched maybe a month ago, they played both Let Down and High and Dry.

i wasn't a big fan of 'punchup' but they play it very, very well live. and yea, kid a was awesome. i thought that thom would have some sort of weird effect on his voice but he just belted it out, it was awesome.

hearing android more towards the beginning was really cool.

idioteque was a little bit of a let down for a closer. i think they shortened it from the last time i saw them (2 years ago today).

um, yea. it was fucking great.

Why won't they play Creep? Is it one of those "fuck that, our most popular song will never be played again" things?

That's BS.. you pay your $60 you should see the most wanted songs.

pay attention to the thread. they played it didn't they. they just didn't like the song because for years and years thats all anyone called out and wanted them to play. they stopped playing it so people stopped calling it out. now they are playing it again some. big deal. sounds like a smart plan on their part to me.

Wasn't Pearl Jam's best charting single Last Kiss? They don't play that all that often.

Jeremy doesn't make it into a lot of shows either, and that did pretty well too.

As for Last Kiss, it was their most bought single <i>because it wasn't available on any other album.</i> It's far from their most played, requested or wellknown songs - those are on the albums.

And yes, they do play it.

I definitely heard it on the radio more than any of their songs since Better Man or Corduroy or any of those....

don't forget that not only was it played on dad-rock and alt-scrunge stations, but was also embraced by top 40 stations.

I meant highest radio chart, not sales. It's their only single to have gone top 5, which would make it their most popular song, correct?

And by my count from the Sky I Scrape, "Jeremy" was played 20 times on a 50+ date U.S. tour, and "Last Kiss" 10.

You said if you went to see the Foo Fighters and they didn't play "Everlong" you'd be irked. Well, it stands to reason that more than half the Pearl Jam crowds were unhappy because the biggest 'hit' wasn't played.

Just saying Pearl Jam is lauded for playing sets that don't have to cater to the hits ("Evenflow" and "Corduroy" notwithstanding) so it shouldn't matter if Radiohead doesn't play "Creep" if they're playing good sets that people are into.
