Reports: Radiohead debut new songs, pull out old faves at tour kickoff in Miami
It has begun. Radiohead kicked off their Spring U.S. tour at American Airlines Arena in Miami on Monday, and the sold-out crowd got their money's worth, with a generous 24-song set that delved deeper into the band's catalog than any fans probably imagined.
Among the highlights: The band debuted two new songs, Cut a Hole (above) and Identikit, and performed the OK Computer-era B-side Meeting In The Aisle for the first time EVER. And they sprinkled in some hits like Karma Police, The National Anthem and There There. Please oh PLEASE save some of that awesomeness for Tampa, Thom!
For some reviews of the Miami gig, check out the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Miami New Times, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Consequence of Sound, and the always-excellent fan site At Ease Web (which also has a setlist).
