Local troubadour Erik Husman – of Erik Husman and the Golden Rule – was lucky enough this week to be able to stop in and take in Radiohead’s sold out Tuesday night show at 1st Bank Center, and was also gracious enough to write DenverThread a review of what will, no doubt, stand as one of the year’s standout shows. Enjoy!
Red Rocks Amphitheater, August 26, 2003, was the last time I saw Radiohead live, blissfully unaware that it would be nearly eight and a half years before I would see the visionary band return to Colorado (I realize a biased voice in music journalism is certainly frowned upon, but this band really has got it all together).
Fast forward to Tuesday night at the 1st Bank Center. Waiting in line, the typical banter helped me to realize that I wasn’t the only one who hadn’t seen the band live for a while, and was ready to see what they had to offer. And that was a lot of “The King of Limbs.” The band played every song on TKOL, and added a couple new tunes as well.
