First time I ever saw Radiohead - what an amazing night. The band was in great mood and played really well. Highlihts for me are: Planet Telex (Much much better then original) Fake Plastic Trees (I nearly cried) True Love Waits/Everything - True love was a great suprise, Everything was amazing! Idiotique - an amazing closer. I'm just sorry that Paranoid Android was left out.

I was blessed to go see Radiohead on monday the 25. I agree that the crowd was not into it because there were not real fans. I loved it from the opening tune till the end. Radiohead is deep and I thank god for this music that I'm allowed to hear and see. This is my 5th time seeing them live and they keep getting better and better. Radiohead is simply beautiful.

Perfect volume, Thom freakin' out (and showing his human side), Johnny being oblivious to the crowd 'cuz he's in a groove, Colin and Phil pairing up as usual, Ed holding it together, TALK SHOW HOST... need I say More?

This show was a once-in-a-life_time type Radiohead show. I can't believe the "it started out slow" posts! Considering the "pre-Talk Show Host" material included Optimistic, There There, and Pyramid Song, which I was afraid we wouldn't hear because they played it Sunday. On top of everything, there was that beautiful Neil Young cover. This show was amazing. I'd seen them with the Pixies at Coachella and when they played The Greek a few years ago. Anyone "Let Down" or not totally amazed with this show needs a reality check.

Hey, another groophugger on here... Monday BLEW AWAY Sunday's show. I was kind of concerned as it started off a little slow, but really picked up at Talk Show Host. Highlights: No Surprises, Fake Plastic Trees, True Love Waits (the small bit of it they did) and Karma Police. This makes the 7th Radiohead show I've been to.

This was my 8th Radiohead show. It's hard to define gradations of the band's performance, it's always pretty close to flawless. I was brought to tears three separate times during the set - Johnny's guitar work on Talk Show Host, Thom's high note at the end of Nude, and the crowd singing along throughout Fake Plastic Trees. I've seen them on Pablo Honey, Kid A, Insomniac, Hail To the Thief, pre-In Rainbows, and now after In Rainbows, and they're consistently excellent. I do have to say that Thom's voice wasn't *perfect* on Optimistic, which worried me, so yeah, they did start a little rough for them. But hell. It's Radiohead. The setlist was absolutely the best of any other show I've seen them do. And we got Talk Show Host. See y'all on my home turf in San Diego tomorrow!

Didn't somebody once sing, "I Hate Mondays" . . . well not anymore! Great show, and yes, I agree the crowd was a bit subdued to begin with. Talk Show Host woke us all up and we were treated to a great mix of music thereafter. I had a hunch a complete Tell Me Why was coming, but did not think we'd see it until Santa Barbara (see Cinnamon Girl closer some years ago). The Idioteque finale was fun and sent a lot of people dancing into the night. More surprises in store for SD or SB? Let's hope so! Oh, loved the red pants on Thom. After seeing them, I was waiting for a cover of Seven Nation Army or for Meg to join Phil on the skins.

Ok, what is up with the downers here. Sunday was just ok and I am a huge fan of them and felt the setlist left me wanting Monday to be different. So I go Monday and they blew me away. the first 6 songs I was in heaven. But when they came back with Talk show host it was epic from there on out. Reckoner opening was great (fave new song) and planet telex was simply unreal to hear. I am head to Chula Vista tomorrow and hoping for Iron Lung, Airbag, and Go to Sleep.... Sunday: 8/10 Monday: 9.5/10 Wednesday: Fly to The Moon!! Fingers crossed....
