I am very biased toward Radiohead. This is a fact that people will have to accept in reading this blog. After years of being a very lazy fan, I finally made the effort to go to a Radiohead show. I’ve already discussed the concert here, but the experience continues to reverberate within me. Thankfully, I’ve finally remembered to include some pictures as I go along in this post.
I had nothing but anticipation as the waiting changed from months and turned to weeks and days. The time was spent running through my Radiohead catalogue, checking setlists from other shows in the tour and analyzing the very nature of the band.
Clearly the hour before the band took stage was surreal. I realized that I would actually see Radiohead on a stage, breathing the same air as me. Grizzly Bear put forth a great effort in trying to entertain (and I do think they’re the next great band that will emerge as being truly spectacular in the next few years), but the true band was to come.
And boy did they show up. Each song resonated with brilliance unrivaled by even those laid down in original album form. The band seemed absolutely alive and in a sense of true joy. The lights were fantastic, the sound was flawless and the setlist was stunning. My only hope is that I can see the band again when they return to America. I now have these photos to help relive the experience. Please enjoy.
