I also feel that there was a lack of momentum in the gig. They built up a mood and then threw it away again. Also, coming back on for the last encore in front of all those people who had paid all that money and sitting down at the moody solo piano rather than picking up the distorted electric guitar seemed wilful at best and egomaniacal at worst. Almost no communication with the audience didn't help. Big sense of distance between band and crowd. That was the sixth or seventh time I have seen Radiohead, and the first one I haven't enjoyed as much.

just why is everyone disappointed with the setlist? it was awesome some of these songs havent been played at big gigs before, everything radiohead touch seems to turn to gold, so just because you havent got into these songs yet, you should still enjoy them.. few twats just go there to sing karma police and no surprises (which btw i was hoping for but wasnt disappointed)

the only let down, is how much better the second days setlist was. more anthems were played and the setlist is more varied. however, we got the tourist and planet telex, and that for me just makes ours better for me :) cant get over how good they actually were

this is the first time i've seen radiohead, mostly by default(alcohol),but as i suspected they are the greatest band on the planet, overwhelming and trust me i've seen almost all the a thousand years time people will be studying the genius we've got to see. yippee to us!

Very, very disappointing due to the weak setlist. Too many slow songs and the period from Wierd Fishes through Dullars and Cents to Faust Arp simply dragged all the momentum away. From then on it was difficult to enjoy the show - no hits, few fan favourites, nothing. There is a fine line between leaving your audience wanting more and leaving them wanting their money back, and I'm afraid I fall into the latter.

I wasnt particularly impressed with the gig. I think it was the sight of a champagne bar on entry and also the number of middle class rug carrying folk that just suprised me.

first radiohead show and it was amazing slightly disappointed with the setlist and crowd was expecting some kind of mass epiphany but in any case it was fantastic

I also just got home from the gig. It was pretty mind blowing! Easily a great gig, though I don't think they were loud enough. The levels were perfectly blended with each other but the overall volume should have been lifted... that would have made it better for me, still Airbag was AMAZING and my personal favourite of the night was either All I Need or There There!
