Radiohead

If you were there, how long did you wait to get inside to see Radiohead play their first of two shows at Roseland Ballroom in NYC last night? I arrived at 8:00 and made it in around 9:00. The line for will call check in (all tickets were will call) wrapped around the entire square block. The end of the line was all the way back at the venue, and had apparently been that way since doors opened. If you didn't have a ticket in advance, did you manage to get in? Lots of people were walking up and down the line with signs explaining why they deserved to get your extra if you had one.

Four Tet was on when I finally got through the doors, but without a good spot, and with all the loud crowd noise, it was hard to focus on the opener. Roseland was packed. Radiohead, complete with 2nd bald drummer, took the stage a bit after 10 and played till after midnight. The concert itself was as special as (any Radiohead fan) expected, but my highlight was definitely the second of two encores which did not seem planned. Nobody in the giant venue (relatively speaking) was ready for the band to leave after they finished with "Morning Mr. Magpie" from the new "King of Limbs" album. The club toyed with turning the house lights back on, house music came on, and the crew even seemed to be breaking down. It could have been an act to make an encore seem real for once. Regardless, it worked and the boys returned to the stage, now all dressed down and in black, to the loudest cheers yet. And this time they closed the night off right, with the one-two punch that was "Street Spirit" and "Nude."

Earlier in the set they played a bit of "The One I Love" which was a nice little tribute to the recently-departed R.E.M. The full setlist is below.

Though I can hardly understand Thom when he speaks, he seemed in a good mood. He asked if we saw the movie "Inside Job" and then I think he said something about nothing being different. He mentioned it was nice to not be sitting around a TV studio, a reference to the fact that their NYC vacation so far has included appearances on both SNL and the Colbert Report. The merch included special t-shirts made just for the shows (pics below).

Radiohead do it again at Roseland tonight (9/29). More pictures, some great videos, and the setlist from last night, below...

Posted by Anonymous | September 29, 2011 3:28 AM

This show isn't my first but will remain the most memorable due to the circumstances ie first NYC show in years, Subterranean having been played, etc. Whatever about the haters, haters gonna hate. I showed up at 7 and went towards the front of the line because I'm not a sucker. Massive lolz at anyone who went to the end of the line. Cool integrity bro.

No Bends, one from Hail to the thief, one from Ok Computer and a bunch os the pretty shitty new stuff. At least they played decent songs from In Rainbows. Other than that...better lucky tomorrow!

Radiohead have become a parody of themselves... trying to make "OK Computer" over and over, only more boring.

I should have bought some tickets to scalp. Radiohead fans are fucking morons, and nobody should feel guilty about ripping them off.

Like the other times I have seen them, the band was happy up on stage smiling and giving thumbs ups to each other, jokes with the crowd, they looked like they genuinely were enjoying themselves. The crowd was happy too - even Philip Seymour Hoffman I spotted - the whole time. Hate all you want, people enjoyed it and the band did too. If you don't like it then you don't like it but people do enjoy it and that is just fine.

and, before you assume I paid a ton of money, I did not. A ticket through a friend through WASTE

I wish I was there, but I couldn't get tickets. It's so weird having one of my favorite bands playing only a few blocks from my apt and being unable to go. I guess next week's Portishead show will make up for it though.

Baseball was fantastic last night. Epic collapse by the Sox. Loved it.

One other thought, Radiohead on The Colbert Report was very entertaining.

Posted by Dan | September 29, 2011 9:59 AM

Only time I have ever seen a decent gig at the Roseland was when Strummer played there (then again, he was killer at the St. Ann's Warehouse too).

If you did not see Radiohead at Liberty State Park in 2000, you missed out.

"In 2000, I spent 18 months traveling through China and SE Asia, having this greatest time of my life. Sorry friend, YOU missed out!!"

10:15am =

White person travelling can be broken into two categories – First World and Third World.

First world is Europe and Japan, and man, this travel is not only beloved but absolutely essential in their development as white people.

Every white person takes at least one trip to Europe between the ages of 17-29. During this time they are likely to wear a back pack, stay at a hostel, meet someone from Ireland/Sweden/Italy with whom they have a memorable experience, get drunk, see some old churches and ride a train.

What’s amazing is that all white people have pretty much the same experience, but all of them believe theirs to be the first of its kind. So much so that they return to North America with ideas of writing novels and screenplays about their experience.

Upon returning home, they will also find an affinity for a particular beer or liquor from a country they visited. They use this as an excuse to mention their travels when at a bar. “Oh, I’ll have a Czechznlishiyush Pilsner. You see, that was my favorite beer when I was travelling through Slovenia and the Czech republic.”

The second type of white person travel is Third World. This is when they venture to Thailand, Africa or South America. Some do it so that they can one up the white people who only go to Europe.

But like with Europe, white people like to believe they are the first white people to make this trip. As such, they should be recognized as special and important individuals.

That’s right, by going to a country, riding around on a bus or train, staying at a hotel or hostel and eating – they are doing something important for the world.

If a white person shows up in your country, you can make them feel fantastic by saying how you’ve never seen a white person before, and that you are amazed by their iPod – “a device that plays many songs? impossible!”

They might give it to you, then you can sell it for profit. Repeat as necessary."

Ok. Straight forward and honest. I would like to get head/laid by one of those super hot girls you always see on the subway and say, "IS THAT SOMEONE FAMOUS? WTF? SHES THE MOST RAVISHING CREATURE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. "
Is that too much to ask? I'm not ugly.
Give me that, and the ticket for tomorrow's show THURSDAY 9/29 is yours. It's that simple.

Is Radiohead worth that to you? (I know you're nodding) We both know you've done it for free (clearly less that $800.00)

MUST INCLUDE PICS. WOMEN ONLY.

3. The setlist is amazing and what's more amazing is that they were able to perform their new songs from King of the Limbs live, I thought that was impossible.
4. This is one of the greatest bands of our century, whether you like it or not.
5. Baseball is only watched in America, there is no such thing as World baseball.

Hmm, perhaps I should listen to Radiohead on my iPod and spend the evening inhaling hummus farts on the crowded L train. Sounds like a similar experience, except I won't have to wait in line an hour to do it.

11:53 because it could make sense for them to do it, considering the equipment would not need to travel far, and Mogwai canceled long enough in advance to make arrangements, having said that, I am sure some BV user has a doctorate in visa law and will explain how they can't play the dates.

I have no hopes for them to be there, but one never knows and I would not be disappointed if they didn't show.

@1208 let's see

-Blatant VISA issues
-They have never, ever played ATP before
-New Jersey sucks, and Radiohead have publicly acknowledged this
-Radiohead have made solid announcements that these are the only 2 shows until 2012
-IF Radiohead were playing ATP this weekend, there is absolutely NO reason why they wouldn't announce their performance. No one benefits at all from a "surprise" performance by Radiohead except people who already purchased tickets; it's anti-profit.

Great show (if you love KOL, which I do), but not anything mindblowing.

^ I'm kinda curious as to how you crammed 18 months into 1 year. Can you elaborate? Do you have a time machine? A wormhole? What's the story?

Great show last night. The REM intro to EIIRP was a classy move. Can't believe they did Subterranean Homesick Alien, so great to see live. Also cool to see some setlist changes, such as Reckoner as a set closer and EIIRP mid-set instead of set closer/encore. Love that we earned the 2nd encore.

Hoping to find a way in tonight but if not, NBC comedies & Always Sunny will suffice. Fully expect them to still focus more on the newer material - Separator should be debuted tonight - but switch up the order, and a lot of the non-KOL stuff will be sub'd out for other non-KOL stuff. Paranoid Android for sure tonight.

radiohead will not be playing atp because atp extended public enemy's set to make up for mogwai cancelling. and atp is strict about ending on time, so no radiohead after portishead.

anyone else completely bummed out about sunday's lineup now that mogwai is gone? on top of not getting radiohead tickets, this has been one shitty week for concerts..

That's old. Here's the updated cards, adjusted 2 days after the post you've linked.

http://www.atpfestival.com/assets/timecards/index.html

Posted by Anonymous | September 29, 2011 12:59 PM

In a recent interview with Q magazine the Beady Eye frontman said he had never heard d Radiohead's 1997 album 'OK Computer' and says he doesn't agree with it being voted one of the 'greatest albums' of all time.

''I've never even heard 'OK Computer', but anything by Radiohead doesn't make much sense to me,'' he said. ''Everyone's going on about Radiohead pushing things forward, but the only thing they’re famous for really is songs like 'Creep' innit?''

As previously reported on Gigwise, Gallagher also accused Radiohead of copying The Beatles.

Adding: ''I mean we've all written songs like 'Creep', y'know, them classic songs. 'Karma Police' is alright, but it's The Beatles, innit?"

Posted by Anonymous | September 29, 2011 1:01 PM

And I wouldn't say that anyone "expects" Radiohead at ATP, simply that there's a very minimal chance (based on being in town, being close to Geoff Barrow, etc).

Like, if another random arena band came out on Saturday/Sunday in Asbury, the reaction would be "wtf, didn't see this coming".

If Radiohead came out, the reaction would be "what? I mean, I knew it COULD happen, but it just seemed impossible!"

but...wouldnt it be more valuable NOT to announce atp ahead of all this incredible/ridiculous hype? i mean every major news site (even effing cnbc?) is reporting everything radiohead.

im sure if they waited until tomorrow to announce, they'd still get massive last minute ticket sales...

but again...i doubt that they'll play.

Dear Huge Fan,
There are a finite amount seats available in any given venue. Those seats were purchased by folks that got there quicker than you. Ticketmaster didn't screw you. Ticketmaster would have screwed you with the fees they would have charged had you actually been able to purchase tickets.

If anything, Radiohead screwed you by playing too small a venue. I hate Ticketmaster too, but it seems you're being a little reckless with the blame there.

Radiohead is playing ATP on Sunday for anyone doubting it. I can't describe the details of how I'm involved, but yeah, we've known since Monday that it will be happening. They were originally going to just show up for the Ocropolis set (well, at least Jonny and Phil) and not perform together, but after the Mogwai cancellation there were no conflicts, which allowed for a full set. It will be a shortened one-hour set, but a set nonetheless.

tons of merch after show there were 4 colors of shirts and 4 colors of prints, shirts were 40 and prints were 20. Merch Stands accept credit cards. I got there at 530 and was able to stand directly in front of the soundboard. I think it was the best spot in the house for there is a 2-3 inch ledge that allows shorter folk like me an elevated view. Impossible to get drinks/go to bathroom so if you want to get drunk bring in booze or get hammered before. Four Tet played with Rocketnumber9 for 45 minutes and Radiohead was on at 10:14. Tons of people cutting the line so if you feel like a douche you can cut too. The guys sounded great, anyone bad mouthing the king of limbs stuff clearly hasn't seen it live, unless they were at Glastonbury, in which case they wouldn't be bad mouthing it. Pretty cool banter from Tom re Wall St and finally getting out of a TV studio. All in all a great night and well worth the $80 ticket price.

I was screwed because I got all the way to the end and there was a problem with the Visa verification crap that wasn't my fault at all. Happened to a lot of people. That was after I already had a false alarm on the fan pre-sale. I was hoping a fellow fan might empathize with my situation and sell me their extra ticket at face. Didn't happen but can you blame me for trying?

3:27 - Thanks for sticking up for me. I was on the news last night and I was interviewed by a consumer rights blog. Clearly there were enough people in my situation that the media deemed it a story.

@3:27/Tom, As I am not a condo-living yuppie nor a String Cheese Incident fan, I won't be at Brooklyn Bowl anytime soon. But I appreciate the offer.

And "Huge Fan," I am genuinely happy you got to see the show. While my post was of course phrased in a snarky manner (this is BrooklynVegan after all), I have no ill will toward you personally. I do however think your complaint against Ticketmaster is shaky at best. For all of their many flaws, NOT selling you tickets isn't one of them. I have missed out on tickets for the same reason actually.

Perhaps investing in more bandwidth might fix the problem, in which case a valid argument could be made against them, but to simply call it malice just clouds the other valid arguments made against the company, for example ridiculously high service fees and forcing venues into exclusive deals in order to monopolize markets. It's like those kids protesting down on Wall St. Their target is right, but their tenuous grasp of the facts of the situation make all dissent seem petty.

And Tom, you're still a wiener.

""Anywho, I wound up getting in 5 minutes before Radiohead hit the stage. For free"

Righhhttttt. sure you did"

I did the same thing the 2nd night of MSG Theatre in 06. It happens.

@452 no joke. they had a facebook-only presale today, but ended up selling ALL of the tickets through the presale (all 22,000 tickets). they announced that ZERO tickets are going onsale to the general public tmrw; people are shitting cacti.

presale was a 2 ticket limit also so no one is sitting with their friends.

Where the hood, where the hood, where the hood at?
Have that nigga in the cut, where the wood at?
Oh, them niggaz actin up?!? Where the wolves at?
You better BUST THAT if you gon pull that

Man, cats don't know what it's gonna be
messin with a dog like me, D-to-the-M-to-the-X
Last I heard, y'all cowards was havin sex, with the same sex
I show no love......
Empty out, reloaded and throw more slugs
How you gonna explain born in a man?
Even if we squashed the beef, I ain't touchin ya hand
I don't mess with chumps, for those to been to jail
That's the cat with the Kool-Aid on his lips and pumps
I can't deal with brother that think they broads
Only know how to be one way, that's the dog
I know how to get down, know how to bite, bite
Bark very little, but I know how to fight, fight
I know how to chase a cat up in the tree
man, i'll give you cowards the business for messin wot me
ay you crazy!

Where the hood, where the hood, where the hood at?
Have that nigga in the cut, where the wood at?
Oh, them niggaz actin up?!? Where the wolves at?
You better BUST THAT if you gon pull that

Once a song, I come though, guns is drawn
BLAM BLAM, lungs are gone, sons will mourn
From dusk till dawn, nighttime belongs to the dog
On the street passed midnight, look for 'em in the morgue
Don't play with these cats cuz I ain't got nothin to say to these cats
For the mothers that really do love em, please pray for these cats
Cuz I know they all is hardheaded but I ain't got the patience
Don't want me havin no patience turn into more patience
More trips to I.C.U cuz I see you
Tryna get away with things a real wouldn't do
Where my dogs at? (right here) See them niggaz? (right there)
get em boy! (right there) That's how we do... (aiight then)
This is for my dogs, this is for my dogs
yo, where we at baby?!? (creepin through the fog)
From then till now, don't ask me how
Know that we gon roll like them chaps and hit every block on the job

Where the hood, where the hood, where the hood at?
Have that nigga in the cut, where the wood at?
Oh, them niggaz actin up?!? Where the wolves at?
You better BUST THAT if you gon pull that

where the hood at!?

4:54 - For one, people need to stop eating cacti, because that probably hurts coming out. Secondly, there is no accounting for bad taste... 22000 people can be wrong.

@458 there's no doubt that swedish house mafia suck. the situation was just ridiculous.

has MSG ever sold out entirely in a presale?

THEY JUST SOUNDCHECKED "YOU'RE NOT CLEVER", FOLLOWED BY "GET A FUCKING LIFE".

4:59 - Usually pre-sales are only given a designated allotment of the tickets, but sometimes they will just put all the tickets they intended for the public onsale, on sale during the pre-sale.
Nonetheless, I think they buried tons of seats to create a false hype (and maybe to sell to ticket brokers). You'll see tickets releasd again through TM a few days before the show. That happens all of the time **coughcoughLCDcoughcoughStrokes**

22000 can be wrong, but Little Miss Can't Be Wrong.

Many MSG shows sold out instantly in the past. If they have not sold out during a presale, that would be because all tickets are usually not released during a presale. This is like Katy Perry releasing multiple versions of a song to "break" Michael Jackson's record.

@4:26 Really? Shame on BV for not telling us in advance so we could buy all the tickets first and then sell them back to New Jersey and Long Island.

The herbs can dog the setlist...it's f'ing Radiohead, anything they play is special.

Posted by Anonymous | September 29, 2011 8:39 PM

I paid $1500 for a first class ticket to fly in from 3000 miles away. I paid $1100 for two tickets to show on craigslist. I spent $165 on Tshirts and $60 on booze. Zero regrets. Thank U Radiohead. Amazing amazing amazing I think u New Yorkers need a good reality check. The world does not revolve around u and your negativity. Life sucks and you have to pay for it to make it better.

Posted by Anonymous | September 29, 2011 9:23 PM

9:13 - Bragging about how much money you spent, only makes you look like a jackass. Not for nothing, but if you flew in from 3000 miles away, shouldn't you also be bragging about how much you spent on your hotel room?

Thank you again for posting something radiohead here, I see that you are such fans as I do. I love radiohead and never miss an interview that you disclose here. Thanks!

Posted by Roxy | October 4, 2011 9:43 AM

How can anyone who wasn't there judge the shows on the set list? A big part of any show is the two way exchange of energy and emotion between the artist and the audience so if you weren't there or have your head up your arse probably best to concentrate on improving your own life rather than slagging off people who are respectable, successful credible artists.
And if you think they're gonna play pop is dead you're an idiot. They're artists not a fuckin karaoke bar!
Some of you people really are full of shit. Both nights were pretty special and I think that was the general opinion of anyone who was there.
