long time radiohead fan here, and this will be my first bonnaroo. after hearing how legendary the '06 show was for years and years, i'm extremely excited to see them here. i was lucky enough to see them at night 2 of their NYC gigs last september and it was undoubtedly the best concert i have ever seen... possibly just because they're my favorite band and i was second row center, but also definitely because they are an amazing band live.
from what i've read, they're planning on playing sets heavy on the new stuff but also songs that mix in well with TKOL, so don't expect them to be playing all the classics this time around.
Right, but sometimes bands take a different approach to their festival shows. Some bands are more inclined to do a "Greatest Hits"-type show because the demographic is different from their normal shows, even if they are supporting an album. Metallica's set was like this, although they also went in the direction of throwing in a lot of rare cuts from across their discography. But then some bands will treat it just like a normal show, and stick to their tour setlist.
Metallica's '08 set was the same type of set that they had played during other shows of that period. I just checked. We did get an extended encore with a few more rare songs, but the bulk of the setlist was the same as most other shows.

Im SO excited for the Coachella show for so many reasons. To see what kind of setlist they're playing, what kind of stage set-up they have, how they use Clive for the non-KoL songs, lights, etc. That's like my most anticipated show of the next few months and Im not even going lol
