i'm doing a cover story on radiohead for URB magazine and saw all three shows they played this week (shoreline and both h bowl shows) and tonight's show was easily the best. while i really enjoyed the looseness of the shoreline show (colin later called it a 'rubber-legged' gig), but the 2nd of the bowl shows was probably the best show i've seen them do (i've i seen quite a few at this point!). the only thing i can add to this thread that hasn't already been covered was the outrageous celebrity quotient of both LA shows. thursday was pretty average (biggest celeb sighting: elijah wood, coolest celeb sighting: beck)), but friday was insane. i saw everyone from meg ryan to daryl hannah to the chili peppers to butch vig (who had nothing but praises for the show), dj shadow, paul oakenfold, chris martin & gwyneth paltrow, robert downey jr, haley joel osmond - the list goes on. but the best sighting of the night was seeing alison janney (of the west wing) dancing furiously and singing along to pretty much every song - spoke to her later and it turns out she's a HUGE fan. OK, that's all for now. watch for the dec issue of URB magazine for the full story - i did a really nice interview w/thom in LA - really good stuff! Hope that wasn't too off topic...

Brilliance may be difficult to describe, but we all know it when we see it - one part talent, two parts wisdom and three parts passion. Kuddos to Radiohead - truly a brilliant performance on Friday night. Talent is a flame; genius is a fire. Keep it going. True innovators are inevitably controversial - love that about you guys. Long live Radiohead. Peace.

they should have a balloting system where everyone can vote on what they want to hear. i would have like to have heard street spirit and exit music. or anything from the bends for that matter. i guess that is why you should go to every show you can in the tri-state area.

Didn't see Supergrass (I would have liked to, but, you know..)Found our seats on time and waited dilligently for Radiohead to begin.Wow.Oh My.I kept yelling "CREEP!!!" over and over between songs...and...they played it! So everyone knows now that they played creep because of me... Ha.Really though, excellent excellent show.You guys were there...You know.Couldn't have had a better Birthday present.

Oh and in addition they played no surprises, Idioteque and (not to mention) creep... the songs i wanted to hear the most! Truly, it was such a surprise when they played creep, i totally was joking when i was telling my friend that i knew that they would.XD "The Gloaming" was really a surprise."You and whose army" was delightful, and having a pair of binoculars really helped to see what the band was doing collectively to keep up the energy. That night showed me that seeing a great band live is really the only way to do it at all. FOREVERFOREVERFOREVERFOREVER.

OK, I love radiohead, but this show made me obsessed with radiohead. I can't stop thinking about this show! The multimedia was fantastic and fit very well to each song. Can anyone remember what they did for each song...such as which song had the red footage of Thom with the time stamp on it, etc?

that show was fucking amazing! but now every other concer i ever see is going to suck becuase this one was so superb. it was almost a religious experience to have everyone singing "creep" together. even though the band hates that, it was amazing. simply amazing.

amazing. everything from the light wall to the video synching made for an amzing show. I really felt like I witnessed somethign special last night. The hightlight was Thom playing to the camera on "whose Army" and a not-so-pop Creep with a heavenly wail from Thom. The only song missing for me was "sardines"

The greatest night ever!! I am so lucky to have scored last minute tickets and arriving to a setlist worth flying around the world for. Also would like to thank for their wonderful and unique real time updating. It makes me wish we could send them to ever gigs so that they can update setlists for the next 30 years. heh!!!! ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was the best live show I have ever seen. The band is absolutely amazing and everything they did made me speechless throughout the show. Thom's energy is great.
