this was my first radiohead concert. the kinetic energy of thom's singing & dancing, the amazing light show, the incredible response of the crowd made for an experience that i couldn't have dreamt of while listening to their music on my headphones. i'm from nyc. so the element of surprise [evidenced by the over-zealous fan who climbed on the stage to dance around thom] was a unique 'ny-only-thing' that i ain't gonna soon forget. btw, the young fan was quickly escorted off the stage by the hard-working security staff, rest assured that the fab-five were unharmed. loved the way ppl cheered after thom sang the very relevant lines, 'bring down the government, they don't, they don't speak for us,' off of 'No Surprises.' not many other bands out there can give you euphoria, ethereal, morose, defiant, & political activism. 'head can do it all & i think they're atkins-friendly too even though thom's a vegan [?]

this show was AMAZING!!!!!!! need i say more? okay, i'll say more. the next show i'll see will have a lot to live up to. honestly. thom has such a great sense of humor - i loved his whole schtick with "you and whose army". and though "creep" hasn't one of my favorite radiohead songs, listening to it live just won me over. i have to say that everything just gelled that night. not only was the band great, but the fans were awesome too. i mean a concert isn't great unless the fans go wild, and i'd have to say that the entire night was an electrifying experience.

great show; not to be a stickler, but correct altered creep lyrics were: 'want a perfect body / so i could - look good next to you' coulda done w a little less HttT

I thought the show was better than anything I could have ever imagined. I don't think it could have been possible for "You and Whose Army" to have been performed any better than it was. I was also amazed that I got to hear "Creep" live because I thought it was something i would never get to hear (by the way the altered lyric was "I want a perfect body/ So I can lie naked next to you." Paranoid Android was incredible as was Street Spirit and Just. "Idiotechque" was mindblowing. I was a little dissapointed by the shortage of songs off Amnesiac but the general mix was great. Radiohead is definately the best live band around and Thom is definately the coolest lead singer.

This show was {flipping through un abridged dictionary for the correct adjective} prodigious. I've seen the band several times before, but had never seen them perform Creep before. I was excited to hear it, but the highlight was definately Street Spirit. That song brings tears to my eyes, and once again, it didn't fail to achieve that goal. Thom's performance of You and Whose Army? was incredible! The eerie faces and creepy grimaces that he made into the camera were one of the most memorable performances of that song that I've ever seen, or of any song that I've ever seen live... and I've been to MANY concerts. The little hairs on my back and the small of my neck are still standing up on end. Amazing show, incredible performances... the flashing "FOREVER" at the end of the show tricked me... I missed part of it (or so I thought) and was under the impression it said "GOODBYE FOREVER FOREVER FOREVER FOREVER... " and I had tears welling in my eyes until I realized I was wrong.

Great show! 2nd time seeing Radiohead live. I agree that the Hail To The Thief material worked really well live, but I think 10 songs (out of 24 total in the show) from that CD was a bit excessive. Yeah, I love the new stuff, but there were so many older songs I would have liked -- so I supposed in my opinion the show could have had a more balanced set list. Still, it was an amazing performance!

show was killer, my first too. setlist was all i'd hoped for although i would've loved to hear some stuff off amnesiac like knives out. i also would've loved to hear iron lung, which is one of my all-time faves. the correct 'altered lyric' to creep was 'i want a perfect i could, look good next to you.' i loved hearing creep no matter what anyone says; loved hearing street spirit; loved hearing lucky. man it was all good. my ideal concert would be them playing almost every singly song they've put out, including b-sides. bottom line: this is the best band together today, the best band since the beatles. they rock, and seeing them live at some point is a must for any fan. an experience i will live with forever!

What an amazing show!!!!! The best way I can describe it, it was a very spiritual experience for me. The music grabbed hold of me, reached in and captivated my soul! I left in awe and craving more. Sadly, they didn't play one of my favorites, True Love Waits. I still felt blessed to have experienced all that was shared with us...

Also my first time seeing the band live, though I've waited many years to do so. In a word: magical. It was a surreal and mind-blowing experience.
