Within minutes as the immensely popular English band started playing in the city, they made the city fall in love with them. This is even more awe-worthy as the city has not had the opportunity to host the band in a long time. In fact, the last encounter of the city and the band was in 2012, when they took the stage in Palace of Auburn Hills. The aura at the Little Caesars Arena was even more compelling, and whoever was present there would bear a witness to it.
Thom Yorke, the lead singer, made the audience fall in love with the magic of the band last Sunday night when he commenced the performance with the ‘Daydreaming’ ballad. Though he interacted a little less with the crowd, his music spoke to the people in a million different languages. The melody and the lights were a perfect match. The video walls displaying pictures of the band in action equally increased the aesthetic appeal. The lead guitarist Ed O’Brien with his backing vocals got the crowd excited even more!
There was a representation of as many as seven of Radiohead’s nine albums. Together, they performed as many as 25 songs and entertained the enormous crowd of music lovers for a little more than two hours. The performances dipped in the colors of the most memorable music the band has made, was a treat to the eyes and the ears—talk about the mirrors and the shooting lights. Last Sunday was one evidence that you call rare, on the band’s 15th anniversary, that the members with their meaningful music and tantalizing performances had a long way to go, as they have been in the past. And although the band has not performed very frequently in the area in the last two decades, after the night people would want a change to that.
