Radiohead @ the Hummingbird Centre, Toronto. June 8, 2006.
What do you get with 4th row balcony, a last minute decision to smuggle the camera (no press pass), and no zoom lens? Tiny little men and a lot of pretty sparkling lights. But because it’s not always about what you see but about what you HEAR - how about a GREAT FREAKING SET? Wednesday night got a moodier 'Amnesiac'-heavy selection, while Thursday got a more upbeat frenetic set of ‘hits’ & new stuff. Although the two nights were very different and which was "best" was simply a matter of personal preference, I think the overwhelming opinion was that, as a whole, the two nights complimented eachother perfectly. Anyone fortunate enough to go to both is certainly now walking the earth with a totally blown mind.
I went to Thursday's show, which included: The Gloaming; Bangers ‘n Mash; 15 Step; 2+2=5; Kid A; Fake Plastic Trees (*this is where I died & went to Radioheaven*); Videotape; Arpeggi; Idioteque; Climbing Up The Walls; Down Is The New Up; Karma Police; Nude; House of Cards; Myxomatosis; Spooks; Paranoid Android, Knives Out. (Encore 1) - You And Whose Army?; Bodysnatchers; Just; Let Down. (Encore 2) - There There.
