My Dream Radiohead Setlist

Like Spinning Plates…

It’s always a balancing act when attempting to devise a setlist for a band with an expansive catalogue like Radiohead. It only gets harder when you can’t maintain that their best work lies in one era of their music – they’re a band with hits in both halves of their discography.

As such, this article won’t be one of the many that criticise Radiohead for their reluctance to play material from Pablo Honey or The Bends, instead I’ll hopefully construct a setlist that will be mostly agreeable, and draws upon the setlists being played in preparation, for this, the final show of their King of Limbs tour.

Lotus Flower
Bloom
Airbag
Kid A
Pyramid Song
The Daily Mail
I Might Be Wrong
The Gloaming

Encore 2
15 Step
Everything In Its Right Place

Encore 3
Idioteque

I feel this setlist is pretty reasonable and likely for tonight, most Radiohead head shows have had two or three encores, with the show closer being either Idioteque or Everything In Its Right Place. The set I’ve devised draws from their latest material primarly, with five tracks from the King of Limbs, the entire of their Daily Mail EP and four tracks from In Rainbows, their 2007 release.

If they play anything even remotely resembling this tonight I’ll probably die.

There’s a Spotify playlist of the setlist here!

  1. I saw them last night, they were amazing. I wouldnt worry too much about the playlist, the visuals alone will blow you away. Highlights were Paranoid Android, 15 Step, Airbag, There There, Everything in it’s Right Place and Karma Police. Id go again tonight if i could get a ticket without going to a scalper. Thom Yorke’s voice is spot on too. He looped his voice on Give up the Ghost and it was awesome. Enjoy!
