22 aout 2008, San Francisco, Outside Lands festival
Cette nuit c’était l’Outside Lands festival, près de San Francisco.
Le concert était apparement phénoménal – "simplement magique, comme quelque chose qui n’est pas entièrement de ce monde", d’après LiveDaily. Voilà un extrait de leur article:
Up next on the big stage, it’s a bird, it’s a plane… it’s the Thom Yorke Superfriends Party! Early technical glitches plague Radiohead‘s first handful of songs (including a couple minutes of total silence, which prompts Yorke to wonder who spilled their beer on the power cord), but the remainder of the set is sensational.
It would be easy to take Radiohead for granted at this point. They are sort of everywhere, in a psychic sense, and they belong utterly to this generation. They are our Beatles. Twenty years from now you will realize this and it will make you smack your head that you didn’t pay better attention when you had the chance.
Friday night in San Francisco, with the gorgeous strains of "Airbag" rising up to meet the mysterious fog blowing in from the ocean, up and over the enormous stage, and into the first nighttime concert ever held in Golden Gate Park, they were simply magic, like something that doesn’t fully belong to this planet.
Yes, they’re that good.
