The first time I saw Radiohead play live was in 2008 at Berlin’s Wuhlheide. I was actually based in Bonn that summer, but flew into the Hauptstadt just in time to head straight to the venue with all my stuff, see a fantastic show, eat some pizza afterwards, sleep for few hours, and then take an early morning flight back to Bonn.
And four years later: same band, same city, same venue. But thankfully, this second time around was a little more relaxed. I got to enjoy the show as a Berliner, and Radiohead did not disappoint!
We saw the first of the two shows Radiohead played at Wuhlheide on this tour (15,000 in attendance), and they performed a great mix of both new and old songs. (Check out the setlist here.) The whole show had a really great energy, and even though the temperatures were chilly, everyone in attendance was in a fabulous mood.
The light show also made for fantastic colorful photos! (See more of them here.)
And as always, we couldn’t resist recording a few of our favorite songs. Wierd Fishes from In Rainbows…
And There There from Hail to the Thief…
Are you a Radiohead fan? Have you seen them play live? What did you think?
