CHICAGO (Reuters) - British art rock sensations Radiohead played a gem-like performance on the Chicago lakefront on Friday, headlining the first night of the three-day Lollapalooza music festival.
"They sound extremely polished," said fan Arynne Gilbert, 28, from Chicago, as the band went through a two-hour, 24-song set that included "Fake Plastic Trees," and "Paranoid Android."

Not to say it's all downhill from here ... but maybe it is, a little. Friday had, in my books, the best lineup of the weekend, and easily the festival's keynote set -- Radiohead, who right now are about halfway through their marquee show. So far, it's been a pretty wide swath of material, mostly from "OK Computer" and beyond, and heavy on stuff from last year's "In Rainbows."( moreeeeCollapse )
