18. Airbag
19. Bodysnatchers
20. Cut A Hole (new song)
21. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
———
22. Give Up The Ghost (with a false start)
23. Reckoner
24. Karma Police

They weren’t kidding about the back catalog songs for this tour being of the moodier, TKoL-esque variety. Lots of great stuff though. I’m glad to see that the band evidently loves ‘The Gloaming’ as much as I do, since they’ve continued to play it on both the In Rainbows tour and this one. OK Computer-era b-side ‘Meeting In The Aisle’ is certainly a left-field inclusion, but in a good way. Also, two new songs! Perhaps this is a sign that the turnaround between this record and the next one will be of a reasonable length this time.

If you’re so inclined, you can grab a FLAC audience recording of the whole show from dimeadozen.org. I’ll post some thoughts on that once I have a couple hours to listen.

It’s worth noting that Radiohead have announced precisely zero dates in the northeastern US for this tour, thus far. We’re out of luck unless venturing to Georgia (or Bonnaroo) is a feasible option.
