Radiohead was touring behind the album In Rainbows that was released in October of the previous year as a pay-what-you-want-download. It was a ballsy move. Not only did it pay off but advanced overall control of material for all artists.
To be completely honest this is another of those shows I simply do not remember much of. Not because I drank too much but because it is just not that memorable to me. Maybe it is because I did not have the super anticipation of seeing them like I did the first time I saw them a little over 2 years before this for free. Who knows? What I do know is Donna and I were able to get pretty good seats in Section 103 which was on the opposite side of the stage as the masterful maniac Jonny Greenwood. What I also know is my excitement peaked at the end of their first encore when they played 3 of my favorite Radiohead tunes in a row that they had left out last time around starting with “Just.”
