You people see Radiohead 12 times in 4 weeks then complain about every fucking set list. Radiohead gets rave reviews, people say they are life-changing shows, say it was the best bonnaroo set in years, people I know say they never liked them but after seeing them live they are becoming obsessed. But in here you people say every single show is awful, then you all go and see them twice more next week.
This is pretty much true:

Maybe there should be 2 Radiohead threads -- one for the Supres and MuseRadios who see 60% of their dates on a tour, and one for those who are limited to 2 shows a tour and don't know what "The Amazing Sounds of Orgy" sounds like from memory.
Omar: having a strong opinion is fine. Me suggesting that it's hyperbolic of you to declare a show of theirs to have sucked isn't all that incendiary. Have your strong opinions, and I'll have my relatively mild opinion about your opinion. That's one of the great things about this country.
How is some fanboy who sees a bunch of Radiohead shows on a tour and complains about the setlist ruining my experience at the 1-2 Radiohead shows I will see? If you get upset that someone doesn't like a band you like or what that band is doing, grow some thicker skin. Or just make fun of them.
For your health
I have seen Radiohead nearly 100 times over the last 20 years or so. Some shows are more memorable than others for various reasons. Isn't that strange?

I was at the DC show a couple of weeks ago. It was a great show, my 2nd time seeing them (with the first being in 2008). I'm not a big fan of the new album, but some of the newer songs did sound great live. The National Anthem slayed, as usual. I have no complaints at all about the setlist, I knew what to expect. Would love to see them again sometime soon.
