Live Webcast of Radiohead's U.S. Finale TONIGHT

Straight from the lips of Colin Greenwood to your ears via Dead Air Space, Radiohead is set to stream their entire performance live across the world tonight, marking the end of a "brilliant tour" (he said it, and we agree.) The band is capping their highly successful U.S. tour in support of In Rainbows with a set in Santa Barbara, California at The Bowl. From the band's official Web site earlier today:

Hello! To celebrate the end of a brilliant tour, we're going to webcast the last show here in America. We'll be playing live in Santa Barbara, at the Bowl. It's one of our favourite places to play; I think we've ended tours there before, once even playing a cover of ' cinnamon girl '. It's not too big, in fact it's very intimate, a small arena with a dirt floor, set in pretty countryside. It should be a special night, for lots of reasons, and we're going to try and share as much of it as we can on the webcast. Nigel, our producer, will be helping out getting it to you, so if it goes wrong....It's live!

Thank you so much to everyone who's come and seen us this year; it has truly been the most special and exciting tour for all of us.

Webcast details to follow...

So many options tonight. Do we watch Barack Obama's history-making speech in Denver, officially accepting the presidential nomination from the Democratic party? Or do we plunk ourselves down in front of a computer, preparing to be blown away at the sheer spectacle of Radiohead (albeit on a 15 inch screen?) And there's always the option of watching the Phillies hammer the Cubbies (at least in my mind...) Stark reccomends a combination of all three. Find a room with a TV, tune into the DNC, take your laptop with you and watch the concert, and follow along with your baseball game of choice by way of ESPN. Hooray! Details on how to watch this ol' Webcast after the jump.
