Radiohead tour

Radiohead ends their tour with some “true love”

The band played their final show of the North American first-leg tour last night in Santa Barbara, CA. Along with a slightly different setlist from recent shows, the band surprised the audience with the much loved “True Love Waits”, which Thom performed by himself at the start of the first encore. You can see last night’s setlist and reviews here and the night before’s here.

Radiohead will return to the US on July 30 to start their second-leg in Atlanta… But that comes after the much anticipated show in Oxford on July 7. Check the tour dates page for more info.

How did Colin spend his birthday in San Francisco? The SF Chronicle knows!
