Watch Full Video Of Radiohead’s Glorious Headlining Performance At Lollapalooza

first_imgEdit this setlist | More Radiohead setlists Radiohead are currently on a brief U.S. tour in support of their beautiful new album A Moon Shaped Pool. The tour started last week, with the band triumphantly returned to Madison Square Garden after a 13 year absence. They played OK Computer track “Let Down” for the first time in 10 years on night one, then they surprised almost everyone in the room on night two when they played “Creep” for the first time on American soil since 2004. Radiohead’s two nights at MSG were a warm-up for an even bigger performance: a headlining set at Chicago’s Lollapalooza. Their set turned out to be one for the ages, with a career-spanning setlist filled with fan-favorites, relative rarities, and the unique atmosphere that only Radiohead can provide.The band has started every show this summer with the first five tracks from AMSP, but, for the first time this summer, left out tracks 3 and 4 (the groovy “Decks Dark” and the acoustic “Desert Island Disk”), opting instead to skip from the beautiful “Daydreaming” straight into the synth-induced panic attack that is “Ful Stop”. The band kept the energy extremely high, following the new material with some of their most intense songs in “2+2=5”, “Myxomatosis”, “My Iron Lung”, and “Climbing Up The Walls”.  Fan favorites “Pyramid Song”, “The Gloaming”, “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi”, and “There There” all made their way into the set as well, and the band of course included their traditional classics “Everything In It’s Right Place” and “Idioteque towards the end of the set.Radiohead returned for their encore with another version of “Let Down”, now played at all three U.S. shows this summer after the aforementioned 10 year gap. “Paranoid Android” is one of Radiohead’s best live songs, and the epic multi-section tune worked wonders at Lollapalooza. “Nude” is, in contrast, Radiohead’s most delicate song, so pairing these two together, followed by the encore-closing rager of “Bodysnatchers”, shows the band’s diversity.They took one more short encore break before taking the stage one more time, delivering an epic pairing of “Street Spirit (Fade Out)” and “Karma Police” that left the crowd singing into the night’s sky as they exited the massive festival.Radiohead’s set was streamed on Sunday, and thanks to YouTube user MusicFest we can now watch Radiohead’s incredible Lollapalooza set in all of its glory.last_img read more

La Liga president critical of decision to end Ligue 1 season

first_img“In Spain, football is an important economic driver that we need to reactivate like many others. We continue to focus on this reactivation, in a responsible manner and adhering to health recommendations, as soon as possible.”As things stand, Barcelona sits atop La Liga, maintaining a two-point lead over rival Real Madrid through 27 matches.Sevilla and Real Sociedad currently sit in the other two Champions League spots, with Getafe, Atletico Madrid and Valencia all within five points of third place. La Liga president Javier Tebas on Tuesday criticized France’s decision to end the Ligue 1 season, comparing matches behind closed doors to working on an assembly line or fishing boat as Spanish football moves closer to a return.Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced Tuesday that professional athletes, including footballers, may return to a limited form of training as soon as May 4. The return to training is the first of what Sanchez sees as four phases, with the second being a step up in training at performances centers.At the third step, outdoor activities with fewer than 400 attendees can begin before the final phase: a return to “the new standard.”With Sanchez’s statement, the Spanish government made it clear that it believes the La Liga season can still be finished, despite the recent cancellations of France’s Ligue 1 and the Netherlands’ Eredivisie.Tebas was critical of France’s decision to end its season altogether because of the coronavirus pandemic, saying that giving up on the season was not a wise economic or social decision.He says he wants the Primera Division to get back to play while taking all the precautions necessary to make sure players and staff are safe.”I do not understand why there would more danger in playing football behind closed doors, with all precautionary measures, than working on an assembly line, being on a fishing boat on the high seas, etc.,” Tebas said in a statement.”If important economic sectors cannot restart, in a safe and controlled manner, they could end up disappearing. That could happen to professional football.”In other countries, teams are already training, that’s the example to follow.last_img read more
