Radiohead ao vivo no dia 11 de setembro de 2001: “I hope President Bush won’t start World War III”

, por Alexandre Matias

Enquanto a manhã da terça-feira que assistiu ao atentado terrorista da história (que completa dez anos domingo que vem) terminava em Nova York, em Berlim, na Alemanha, a noite começava com um show do Radiohead, em plena turnê do disco Kid A. O texto abaixo saiu de um post do site de fãs da banda, o At Ease Web, e foi escrito na época:

“I’ve just returned from Radiohead’s show in Berlin. The band did play after the airplanes hit the World Trade Center. At first, Thom didn’t mention what was going on, except for: “What can you say after a day like today. I guess, there is nothing to say”. A couple of songs later Thom said that he was trying not to say anything and apologized for being mute. He then realized that the crowd was probably not aware of what went on in the USA, so Thom & Ed tried to explain the situation. But, I guess that for the people who didn’t know (and I think that a lot of people didn’t have a clue), really couldn’t comprehend those facts. Before ‘You and whose army’ Thom said: “I guess this one is for the Bush administration”. The band ended the show with Street Spirit with the words: “I hope President Bush won’t start World War III”.

Eis o setlist daquele show:

“National Anthem”
“Hunting Bears”
“Morning Bell”
“My Iron Lung”
