While the band can certainly fill the expanse of an outdoor shed like Tinley's, it seems an odd choice for a group who has built their career on the unexpected. Heck, one could take their Grant Park show in 2001 as the harbinger of a successful outdoor concert festival there. Maybe it's simply not feasible but we'd rather see the band in The United Center or in a series of dates in smaller spaces than from the lawn of a venue that has failed to keep up with the times.
But that's our dreamer's eye at work. We're certain that Radiohead is more than capable of rising to the challenge of delivering a compelling concert no matter what space they perform in. Tickets go on sale through the band's website on March 8.
