The band — which mixes up its set list from night to night — played songs from throughout their career Tuesday, including from those albums. OK Computer’s epic "Paranoid Android" fit into an encore slot and was one of many tunes throughout the evening — "All I Need," from 2007’s In Rainbows was another example — that were carried by soaring melodies suitable for singing along with, like the one in "No Surprises," which played like a deceptively gentle resistance anthem as it urged "bring down the government / They don’t speak for us."
Those songs underscored the true secret to Radiohead’s success. Yes, they’re daring, adventurous, dystopian, and, contrary to the "No Surprises" title, actually full of surprises.
But they also make music that’s quite often uncommonly pretty and soothing. The man-bunned and scruffy-bearded Yorke has a gorgeous, floating, unpredictable singing voice and a delivery that is never too on the nose. He’s slippery and elusive, mirroring the songs’ winding rhythms and melodies, which were largely captivating and which only occasionally drifted aimlessly off into the ether.

Radiohead wrapped up their North American tour on Wednesday (8/1) night at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, their second night in a row at the venue. The tour kicked off in Chicago in June, and included a four-night run at NYC's Madison Square Garden as well as multiple nights in Boston, Toronto, Montreal, and Chicago.
Like they have throughout the run of the tour, Radiohead mixed up their setlist for the final two shows of the tour. The setlist for night one skewed heavily towards A Moon Shaped Pool, while night two pulled largely from Kid A, OK Computer, and In Rainbows. See the full setlists from both Philly shows, and watch videos from night two, below.
