Radiohead Kick Off 2008 World Tour

Radiohead kicked off their 2008 world tour at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida last night (May 5).

The band are playing a string of US dates before heading to Europe this summer.

According to Ateaseweb.com, following an hour-long performance by support band Liars, the group took to the stage draped with two Tibetan flags, to play a 24-song set, featuring two encores and saw frontman Thom Yorke joking about the amount of plastic surgery cases he saw while in Miami ahead of the gigs.

"We spent three days at Miami Beach. ******* hell! What’s going on there?" he asked. "Some kind of reconstruction! for once I was proud to white, pale and English."

The band played almost all of new album 'In Rainbows', bizarrely omitting the record's first single 'Jigsaw Falling Into Place'.

There were also rare live outings for the likes of 'Optimistic' (from 2000's 'Kid A') and 'Bulletproof (I Wish I Was)' from 1995's 'The Bends'.

Radiohead played:

01. All I Need

02. Bodysnatchers

03. There There

04. Reckoner

05. The Gloaming

06. Morning Bell

07. Nude

09. 15 Step

10. Arpeggi

11. Idioteque

why would they omit 'Jigsaw Falling Into Place', it's the best song in "in rainbows"????

I sort of wanted to see them too - although I have seen them twice already, in 2000 and 2004- but the ticket was just too expensive! Let us know how it was!

The first show will be hard to top. Somebody in the crowd hit Thom with a shoe (I think) and he called the dude a "bloody skullcap" and walked off the stage for a little bit. That was entertaining. :)

Apparently the set list changes nightly, and I have a hard time believing they won't play "Paranoid Android". I'd love a few more from "The Bends", too.

The issue will be that their set is longer then 1h30 and Rock Werchter is really strict in playing time :(

I hope Paranoid Android doesn't fall out that way!

Right before they played it Thom said "This is a nasty little bugger", so I was pretty sure what was coming. :)

Viaene, this set was right at 2 hours, so I hope they don't have to leave anything out...
