What about security? What time does everything kick off? Are tickets still available? While there is parking available in the Point Village, gig goers are encouraged to leave their cars at home and take the Luas, the 151 bus that operates every 10 minutes during rush hour or to walk. Absolutely not. Doors are at 6.30pm and support comes from Johnny Greenwood’s side project Junun with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and the Indian ensemble the Rajasthan Express. As The Irish Times reported in November when the tickets went on sale, Radiohead took a strong anti-tout stance with the Dublin show, with the name of the purchaser on each ticket, and photo ID will be checked on the door to make sure it matches the name on the ticket. Radiohead are expected onstage at 8.30pm.

What are they likely to play? They will kick things off at 7.20pm. Here’s a setlist from their recent show at Beekse Bergen in the Netherlands on Sunday night, as a taster.
It’s 20 years since the release of OK Computer so considering the generous set lists from previous tour dates with two encores, maybe they’re tipping on the nostalgic side of things by giving fans plenty to savour. Radiohead confirmed as Glastonbury 2017 headliners

Arcade Fire live review: They finally Wake Up when Here Comes the Night Radiohead, in case you didn’t know, are playing a very sold out show in the 3Arena on Tuesday. They released A Moon Shaped Pool, their ninth studio album, last March and since then they’ve covered most of the festival circuit and are making a strong effort to mix in as much of the new music with the crowd favourites. Tickets sold out in just under 10 minutes and they haven’t played Ireland since 2008 on their In Rainbows tour, so Irish fans are frothing at the bit for a bitta Radiohead.
