i drove 30 hrs straight for the concert and it was worth every minute of the terrible heat and boredom on the way. But radiohead once again blew me away. They are the greatest live show on the planet and that alone made it worth it. Not to mention the pixies, flaming lips, muse etc.

"i've seen them over 10 times through the years and this was really not a very good show. Anyone who claims it was incredible hasn't seen them at their best." very arrogant... nonetheless, it was a great show and finale to their httt tour.

I can't describe how great this weekend was. This was the strongest set I've ever seen them play. Planet Telex! Jonny programmed new sounds for idioteque, myxomatosis was amazing/different. Thom had more energy than usual. As much as I didn't really like creep I love it now, awesome - light show. I wet myself. I wish they would throw in more rarities, but well worth the trip. You can go here to download the show. You have to save as .mp3.

After There There and the build up of 2+2=5 the crowd was nuts. The sun sets, they start in on lucky and the 50,000 sun-stroked delerious screaming fans were spellbound and silenced - it was a unique experience. This is what we have instead of religion? It was the best version of I Might Be Wrong i've heard in person or bootleged. They played National Anthem, Paranoid Andriod then Idioteque; as my brother said, "i think thats when i shit my pants." Greatness is blatant, it's obvious. Radiohead was oozing it from every pore and frankly put every other performance at Coachella into its place. I'd keep babbling but you either know what i'm talking about or haven't seen them live yet. Their studio albums are fantastic but the live performances are on a whole different leve. If a copy of this show is circling let me know @ I'll send you a kidney or something, whatever you want.

being as close as i was to the band was spiritual. people dancing, jumping up and down, and getting into trance like states (the gloaming) was so fun to be a part of. there were times when thom sounded very weird, almost an evil version of himself (i think it was the infection) but nevertheless, i can honestly say i've never been so blown away in my life.

The message is clear, we are listening and waiting for more. Now that someone has woken us up, we are empowered by this music to stay awake. The Coachella show was amazing, the energy released was abnormal, exactly like the band, thank you for hope.

I have been to a lot of shows, and I have even seen Radiohead before (with another favorite of mine, Stephen Malkmus, opening last August) but the Coachella performance was definitely the most powerful and moving performance I have ever seen in my entire life. They were dead on, they played so many great songs, and their stage presence was amazing. Ach! I LOVE RADIOHEAD!

The most important band at the moment.I was in about the 3rd row in the pit and shouted to Collin and he pointed at me!Jonny actually moved to Ed's side from time to time and there were moments where he would just hug the guitar.This is the best dam show i've ever seen.....and i saw Phantom Planet right after. the day was hottttttt.
