The Foo Fighters at Hangout this year was one of the best sets I've seen all year. When they kick your ass for a couple of hours you realize how many great songs they have. They are really tight, I didn't hear a thing get dropped the whole night. I think they'd kill at Bonnaroo and I certainly hope they're around over Muse, Kanye or a few of the other names I've heard bounced around lately.
01-10-13: The Growlers
04-10-13: NIN, Explosions in the Sky
08-10-13: Gold Panda
13-11-13: Kanye West/Kendrick Lamar
15-11-13: Cut Copy
10-12-13: Monster Magnet
24-01-14: Big Day Out Festival Melbourne
Word is that while it's a novel idea putting Radiohead on a small stage, the sound equipment there isn't really handling the load all that well.
Here's the setlist. They're up through "Separator" at this point:
Lotus Flower 15 Step Magpie Little By Little All I Need Separator Give Up The Ghost Arpeggi Staircase I Might Be Wrong Bloom Reckoner Daily Mail
I'd love to see them on a small stage, though. But I definitely understand the difficulties. I just hope if they do come back to Bonnaroo that they play a really really long set.
I mean, if Radiohead came back, they would most definitely have to be the #1 headliner (unless, inexplicably, Macca or U2 were there the same year) and I imagine they'd get 2.5 hours at the very least for their headlining set.
Didn't they play for 3 hours in '06? I mean, just the 14 songs they just played at Glasto made for a 75-minute set. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Roo gave them 3.5 hours to play with just like Bruce a few years back. Nobody would complain if they did.
BUT, I can't get my hopes up for Radiohead again, so I'm gonna say this is all a moot point and that it's doubtful Radiohead ever comes back.
