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.

I Might Be Wrong
Give Up The Ghost

Little By Little
Street Spirit (Fade Out)
Everything In Its Right Place
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!
