The lightshow was terrific. Especially the 'Rainbow' part they pull out towards the end.
Thom was also energetic & bouncy, which I appreciate, for they have another show tomorrow & didn't hold anything back.
Weird Fishes is an amazing song, and they nail it live. This was the one that got everybody dancing. Or, at the very least, swaying.

I was there, anybody know where to get a recording?

Markus said...

I agree on the light show!! I'm pretty sure they played "Wolf at the door", don't know exactly where in the setlist.

Nicholas said...

They didn't. They only soundchecked it (Wolf at the Door).

my only issue is that they played Videotape at the WRONG time

the lights at national anthem and planet telex were f**k**g amazing. i'm not sure which concert was better, this one or roger waters, but a simply breathtaking live show.

i flew in from Los Angeles to see this show because I couldn't wait till August when they came to the west coast... totally worth it. Radiohead effin rules however, people in Houston don't like to rock out. Nobody was dancing... all zombies. And what's the deal with Queso?

This is the third time my girlfriend and I have seen Radiohead live and, outside of the novelty of seeing them that first time, it never gets old. We flew in from Portland, Maine to see them and the show was phenomenal!!! The ONLY downside were a few of the rude, stuck up, rich retirees working the gates and parking lots at The Woodlands. Wasn't too sure how the setup at the Woodlands was going to work w/ a small "pit" area in front of the stage followed by a hundred rows or so of seats and then the lawn seats but after the show started the place was energized. As if there were any doubt, these guys are arguably the best live band around today.

Set list in Houston compared to dallas were vey similiar here are the differences besides order of the songs.

Set 1 Houston songs played not played in Dallas:
Lucky, Morning Bell, The Gloaming, Where I end and you Begin

Set 1 Dallas songs played not played in Houston:
Bangers and Mash, Dollars and cents, Wolf at the Door

Encore 1 Houston songs played not played in Dallas:
Climbing up the Walls, Planet Telex, Street Spirit (Fade Out)

Encore 1 Dallas songs played not played in Houston:
Exit Music for a Film, The Bends, Fake Plastic Trees

Encore 2 Houston : Idioteque was the last song played here. This was played in the initial set in Dallas that is why 4 songs are different in the first set in Houston and not 3 as such in Dallas.

Encore 2 Dallas : So here Dallas gets an extra song in the encore which is Paranoid Andriod

So in total each city had the same amount of songs played and varied by 7 different tunes.
I thoroughly enjoyed the show in Houston and I am sure Dallas was just as superb. If you liked one better it is more likely based on personal preferance of the variation of different songs played.

In my perspective this was my second time seeing radiohead. the last time was 2004 such i did not mind if i did not here paranoid android or fake plastic trees - don't get me wrong it would have been the shit but so was planet telex and street spirit as the encore 1 closer.
climbing up the walls was amazing also
