Metallica’s Lars Ulrich was one of the many people raving about Radiohead’s Dublin gig last night
High praise from rock music royalty.
Radiohead tend to put on a hell of a show any time they come to Ireland and Tuesday night’s gig at the 3 Arena in Dublin was no different.
A month on from the 20th anniversary of arguably their most iconic record, OK Computer, the Oxford five-piece delivered a varied setlist that included material from almost every album in their substantial back catalogue in a cracking set that lasted for the best part of two and a half hours.
Irish Radiohead fans reserved the biggest cheer for the mention of the Liffey in the final song of the night, ‘How to Disappear Completely’, but the performance was greeted enthusiastically throughout by everyone present, including Lars Ulrich, better known as the drummer with Metallica.
Ulrich travelled to Dublin specifically to see Radiohead in the flesh and he wasn’t disappointed, describing it as ‘insane’ when posting a video of ‘Everything in its Right Place’ on his Twitter account last night.

That track from Kid A was just one of 25 songs the band got through on the night; you can see the setlist in full here.
If Tuesday night’s performance is anything to go by, anyone heading to Glastonbury on Friday is in for a treat.
