Radiohead @ Roseland Ballroom - 9/29/11 (photo by parkeryoung)

Not counting song order, the Radiohead setlist from last night (Thursday, 9/29) was almost identical to Wednesday's. I think the most notable difference is that Wednesday they played "Street Spirit" and Thursday got "Like Spinning Plates". Thursday also got 21 songs instead of just 20. Their extra was "Supercollider" which was just released this year on a single. Pictures coming HERE. The full Thursday setlist below...

Roseland Ballroom 9/29/2011 Set List:
01 - Bloom
02 - Little By Little
03 - Staircase
04 - The National Anthem
05 - Feral
06 - Subterranean Homesick Alien
07 - Like Spinning Plates
08 - All I Need
09 - True Love Waits / Everything In Its Right Place
10 - 15 Step
11 - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
12 - Lotus Flower
13 - Codex
14 - The Daily Mail
15 - Morning Mr. Magpie
16 - Reckoner

17 - Give Up The Ghost
18 - Myxomatosis
19 - Bodysnatchers

20 - Supercollider
21 - Nude

(thx FPT)

there's nothing bamboozling about that setlist. I would still have bought a ticket if they published that setlist in advance

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 12:42 AM

went last night. same setlist give or take one or two and order was switched up. dont know what the haters are sippin on i thought it was a great selection, obviously they were gonna play new stuff and the older stuff they chose turned out to be fun and random. honestly given these guys' catalogue they could choose 20 songs at random and i'd be happy to see those songs played

I would've been so pissed if tonight was actually a better set list than wednesday night. After all, I paid half my month's rent to go last night. and i live in such a cool neighborhood! I would have felt like such a jackass!

what a miserable group of negative morons most of you are. truly. i feel sort of bad that you don't and will never feel joy... oh, that's right, you don't actually like music. instead you spend most of your time wasting other people's time with useless and completely not-humorous (in the least) comments about bands you have never seen live.

i was thrilled with the performance tonight as well as last night. tonight more.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 1:28 AM

If you were in attendance, you can attest to the fact that the King Of Limbs material is EXCELLENT live. I never really warmed up to the studio versions, but tonight's performance of those songs has completely won me over. These tunes are going to be live staples for the next decade. They rock on stage.

Well, now I guess I'm less upset about only going on Wednesday night. I probably like "Spinning Plates" more than "Street Spirit," but fucking hell: "Street Spirit" is still Street Fuckin' Spirit." Shocked they brought back "Myxo" and "SubHomAl" again, but, of course, if you are only doing two shows why rehearse 40 different songs when 24 will get the job done?

Just went thru the comments from N1 and tonight's (so far) and I just don't get it! I'm sitting here in Idaho wishing I could see RH for the first time. I've always known of them, but only in the past year have I gotten to truly love nearly every song they've written. I don't understand the "greedy little pigs" (DMB - my other fave)that can't be thankful for what they got. BTW, bands usually play all the new songs from their latest album. Since the venue is small, I'd expect a different crowd for N2 would warrant the new songs again.

Posted by Meg | September 30, 2011 2:03 AM

this set list sucks. the selection of songs from the old albums minus reckoner is snoozeville. if you are looking for a mellow radiohead show, then maybe this hits the spot, but who wants to go to a mellow radiohead show.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 2:04 AM

Your idea of "Mellow" includes "Myxomatosis," "15 Step," and "The National Anthem"?

Get real! No way. No way. Mr. sittin' in chairs. No way.

i thought it was great. they sounded fantastic. you will hate on the setlist if you weren't there.p.s. i spotted Danger Mouse in vip. anybody else?

i really HATE to sound like a hipster but i was at the show tonight and i was thoroughly disappointed..not by the band but by the crowd. when they played national anthem, homesick alien, spinning plates, AND TRUE LOVE WAITS there was no reaction from the crowd. i think during TLW my friend and i were the only individuals in the building that were cheering. are you kidding me?? in some cases they didn't even applaud for the songs from in rainbows. i could not believe what i was witnessing. i would go as far as to say that 90% of the crowd tonight only knew KOL and nothing else. yes, this is the world we live in. good night and good luck

My radiohead experience...

10:00am Monday morning- double clicks and captcha codes had me frowning. NO DICE.
1:00pm Monday afternoon- called up all my friends to see if anyone scored tickets. NO DICE
10:00pm Monday night- went out drinking Jamesons to kill the pain. Met some floozy chic with a neck tattoo, brought her home, tapped that ass.

9:00am Tuesday morning- woke up, told the floozy to leave.
9:20am Tuesday morning- hungover!
1:00pm Tuesday afternoon- ate some food (hummus) and started planning on new radiohead ticket tactics.
5:00pm Tuesday afternoon- browsed craigslist. All tickets in the 500 dollar range and probably scams.
10:00pm Tuesday night- went out and drank Jamesons to kill the pain. Met some floozy but she was annoying me with her coked-up chit chat so I stumbled home alone singing Karma police.

2:00pm Wednesday Afternoon- woke up and thought hard of creative ticket scoring Tactics.
3:00pm Wednesday afternnon- called Roseland. Told them I am a detective and need tickets to do spy work for a very important client. They denied me.
9:00pm Wednesday Night- went to some dive bar in Bushwick and met some french girl on vacation. She was hot, but had bad wine breath and hairy armpits. Called a cab and puked out the window on the way home.

Thursday (time unknown)- woke up. Decided to go to roseland and scope the joint out. Noticed a small door in the back.
Thursday 8:00pm- snuck into little side door and ROCKED OUT to an amazing concert!

TRUE LOVE WAITS?!? seriously, for the person who went tonight and commented that no one was getting into it, that truly ANGERS me to the point of rage. That song is so rare for even the intro to be played live. This band has Literally saved my life several times, and i figure ill have to wait like the majority of diehard fans till the 2012 tour, but kids, scalpers, hipsters going only cause its 'trendy' to like the band...None of these things should be associated with rhead. I miss the days of only having to battle fellow diehard nerds for tickets.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 3:32 AM

Show was fantastic tonight. Only complaint I have is that the crowd was wayyyy to talkative during the quiet songs, too the point of distraction. Up front, it was mostly diehards, one chick knew all the lyrics to supercollider.

Radiohead was enjoying themselves tonight, and therefore everybody had a good time.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 4:09 AM

So much for that second encore on Wed being a "surprise" or unplanned. Unless they were, oh my, surprised again on Thursday.

Kind of agree with the crowd not being that engaged, but then again I was somewhere in the middle in front of the sound board.

Do you think all of those celebs had trouble battling ticketmaster?

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 7:19 AM

I'm no hatter and if had some extra money I would go. But really, after seen the setlist, I'm pretty relieved I did not went. See Radiohead playing nothing or just one or two from Ok, Bends, Kid A, Pablo Honey and Hail TTT....

If wanted to listen ONE song from Hail for sure would not be Myxomatosis... nothing from Bends, nothing from Pablo Honey. That's pretty fuck it up from them. But I guess a real die hard fan, as the other guy said, would love any setlist 'cos I can't think of a worse than that.

That shows that Radiohead is in a position to release any shitty record ( I mean, In Ranbows was awesome but KOL!?!? WTF!) and in gigs didn't play any song that made people fall for them in the first place and even them people will say the show was worth it pay 100 or 1.000, that KOL is beautiful...I guess, with Radiohead, people can be a little blind to say the least

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 7:29 AM

God you hatred that went should have sold you ticket. First time I couldn't get a ticket to a fullset NYC radiohead show since the mid 90's. They are always amazing live and from watching the clips it looks like these shows were too. I love they do new material if you want old stuff you should have seen them before. While studio wise their last few albums aren't as good. But those songs live are excellent they have become a true live band.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 7:35 AM

Uneven to say the least...the horrible KOL on It's entirely. The shitty new singles, half of In Rainbows and like 1/3 of the show for the other SIX records? WTF!

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 7:36 AM

I saw them o In Rainbows. And I'm glad I did. I know they are a great live band but I'm a fan of their earlier stuff, even thought, I liked In Rainbows....anyway, I guess the last tour was the last chance to see Radiohead playing older stuff, glad I made It. Would be even better in in a tour like Kid A or Ok Computer but whatever

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 7:53 AM

Loved last night's show. Got there a little late and at that point I'm guessing they had about 20 unclaimed tickets left at the table. Sucks for everyone who couldn't get in - really enjoyed the melodic new stuff live.

Posted by Funderburgh | September 30, 2011 8:35 AM

Last night was my 10th time seeing Radiohead and easily the worst show so far....this was specifically due to the crowd. FUCK YOU!!!

1. SOOOO many people talking during the ENTIRE show! Yes RH fans who desperately and unsuccessfully tried to get in tonight, these fucking morons got YOUR tickets!! Talking during loud songs, talking during quiet piano songs, just never shutting the fuck up!! From drunken slobs on the floor to overpriviledged assholes in VIP...yap yap yapping the whole night long!

2. To the fat sweaty disgusting middle-aged woman who can't handle her liquor and looks like Tony Soprano's sister....stay the FUCK home!! Literally screaming "Thooooom" and then letting me know that's the singer's name.

3. Multiple couples making out all night long. Pay attention to the show assholes!!!!!

4. The sea of iPhones was totally distracting and obstructing. Take a pic, ok...but endless assholes holding a phone over their head and video and entire song???! No one cares about your shitty YouTube video!!!! Fuckers!!!!!

Needless to say, the crowd ruined the show for me! Going to a show should be fun yet my main emotions last night were anger and disappointment. How many times can I tell the same person to SFTU or put their phone away? RH is my favorite band and I doubt anyone standing near me last night knew more than a few songs, just wanting to be there so they could tell their friends about how amazing it was. The scalpers didn't get the tix last night but the fucktard idiots with money to burn certainly did. Oh well, can't win 'em all! At least I got ATP this weekend!

Set list aside (which of course was "disappointing" if you came of age listening to The Bends and OK Computer), Thursday night was incredibly solid. They absolutely killed it. From someone who typically hates the news stuff (until its not new any longer), I was pleasantly surprised.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 8:55 AM

8:36 - I feel your pain. I've been going to shows in NYC since 1987, and I avoid overpacked GA shows where possible (which is why I'm not so disappointed about missing these 2 shows.. I'll wait until the arena/shed tour next year).
It seems like the douche-quotient has grown exponentially since then. Either it has, or my tolerance for douchiness has worn thin.

Wednesday vs. Thursday was like two different bands. Could have just been my environs, which were much more chill back by the soundboard rather than fighting the crowd up front, but Thursday sounded much, much tighter. They had it dialed in. The band was not as playful as on Wednesday but there were no false starts, etc. The jam going into the National Anthem was amazing. They even ventured away from the set list that was on the soundboard ("Like Spinning Plates", et al were not planned)...
Setlist: 3-4/10
Execution: 8/10

I'd love to know who the woman was taking video clips of the first 60 seconds of every fucking song on her phone.
I'm going to stand in front of you at the next concert and just hold my hand in the air so you can watch it while some band plays.

Band was great last night. Second drummer was great last night. I did not expect Feral to be on the setlist, or a viable live selection, but he helped make it happen.

Crowd was apparently bussed in from a TGI Fridays, which must have some satanic deal with ticketmaster.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 9:46 AM

Sitting through the two DJs and that other band was painful. Would have enjoyed Radiohead show much more were it not for that. Radiohead themselves were as strong as ever (have seen them multiple tours over last decade) in my opinion

Great, solid, enthusiastic performance for an underwhelming setlist. Glad I went. Glad I didn't pay $500 to do so.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 10:05 AM

I have to agree with everyone who is saying the crowd sucked! I was a bit to the right behind the soundboard and yes, during the quiet passages there was so much talking it was hard to hear the band!!! Unfortunately that is what we have to deal with as New Yorkers. Never in any other city have i experienced such FOMO that people will shell out $80 or more to just "be at the place to be" with no care or concern for what that event is! It really is sad as it tempered my experience (and from the posts on this board tons of other peoples). Shame that actual fans who would have appreciated this show immensely were shut out by these jackasses.

Also, how did all the bro's and dudes wind up in the VIP section? I thought Radiohead and their camp carefully controlled this aspect of the show so the could keep the Limp Bizkiters away from Scar Jo, Daniel Craig and their other celebrity friends.

For you celebrity train spotters Nick Zinner was there as well.

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 10:09 AM

I got there at 7 and stood in the same spot for over 3 hours and then these bros pushed there way in front of all of us and almost started a fight and then they almost got in a fight with each other (I think I overheard one of them complaining that there just wasn't enough stuff from OK Computer being played) and then they started yelling at each other during and in between songs but its OK! Bc they bro-hugged it out when "Reckoner" came on and everyone was all like "awwwww."

Luckily, I wasn't the one that missed "True Love Waits"...

Posted by Anonymous | September 30, 2011 10:11 AM

This was my second time seeing Radiohead, and I have to admit that I had high expectations (probably too high, really, but I saw them during their 2008 IR tour. Also, THIS was the setlist when I saw them -- a veritable Radiohead fan wet dream:

I don't want to be a hater, because it wasn't a bad concert. But seriously, the set list ruined it! No Separator? Really? That was a HUGE disappointment. And they managed to play all the songs from KOL that I dislike/are the least accessible. I'm definitely glad that I didn't get tickets to both shows. When they start touring in 2012, I'm not sure if I'll go yet because this concert was such a letdown. Oh well. Ultimately, I don't regret going. As a Midwestern girl at heart, it was cool to see all the celebs in the balcony too (Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, ScarJo, Wayne Coyne, Olivia Wilde, Edward Norton, Ellen Page -- I think, Will Ferrell, and Danger Mouse -- dude needs to smile once in a while).

And a huge shout out to the very generous group of strangers who "shared the wealth" with me during the show. I am grateful!

@2:25. You did notice that I said that I didn't regret going, and I didn't say that the show sucked unlike a lot of people here, nor did I insult the crowd. I think it's okay to be critical when you pay money for something that doesn't live up to your expectations. Pardon me for being a critical consumer who uses her brain.

And worst of all worlds is a cynical, elitist jerk who thinks that he or she is better than Midwesterners and New Yorkers. You are worse than anyone who posted a negative review, and make me fear for humanity.
