Radiohead Coachella Stage, Indio CA April 14
Published Apr 18, 2012During the months leading up to Radiohead's headlining performance at Coachella, there were plenty of questions surrounding the band. Many critics and fans were saying that the group had lost their touch and that their most recent shows were too reliant on the quartet's newer material. Luckily the band's Saturday night set had something for everyone, from OK Computer anthem "Karma Police," to skittering groove of "Lotus Flower" from last year's King of Limbs. They even treated fans to a handful of new/non-album songs like "The Daily Mail," a piano ballad which allowed Thom Yorke's voice to wash over the thousands who had made the journey to see the band. The frontman didn't speak too much, other than cracking the occasional joke, but seemed pretty content to be there. After singing a few lines from Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush," Radiohead broke into "Everything in Its Right Place," before being cheered back for two encores.
