I had lawn seats on the hill. Pretty far back, but the sound and lights were still incredible.

Being able to lay back and look at the stars during Pyramid Song and Videotape was worth it.

I don't believe it for a second, but this is supposedly what my view will look like for Sunday:

I dunno, the preview from the venue site before I went was pretty accurate.

When did you get your tickets anyway? I don't remember you being around much during the ticketmaster frenzy a few months back.

I got them the 2nd week of April. There wasn't a huge demand for tix at the time, but the venue ended up being pretty packed.

Plus, I knew I was gonna go for lawn seats because it was all I could afford. If it had been GAs, I would've been more fervent in my search.

$40 for t-shirts? Apparently they're just like every other capitalist pig band. We all know it doesn't cost them more than $5 to print a shirt.

That's sad to hear.

i agree 40 dollars is absurd... but after spending last weekend perusing through some markets in berlin, we couldn't find shirts for much under 30 euro. was utterly shocked by that. a MARKET. that's usually where you go to find good deals and 5 dollar shirts. not 30 euro.

and to be fair, it's at concerts that bands have their best chance at making money. as i've said in countless download-related threads, this is where bands need to "capitalise".

pun fully intended.

This is normally the case, but I don't think Radiohead is a struggling band anymore. Their cut of the In Rainbows profits was much larger than most bands get, and aren't they selling out mid-size venues all across the world still?

They don't have any more of an excuse than U2 does, especially as they're the ones that are supposed to be the anti-corporate rockers.

Maybe the t-shirts are expensive because you Americans got such bloody cheap tickets

Went to the show in Atlanta last night. Was in the pit, about 10 feet away from Ed.

Radiohead is still fantastic, and I really enjoyed the set. The stage, lights, setup was the best I have seen from them. Really cool lights, and video.

My highlights:
The Gloaming is awesome live, and was very pleasantly suprised they brought that back. Loved it on the last tour but thought I would never see it again.

All I Need - really cool, and actually liked it as the opener. really slow for the opening song. just wish, they would launch into a hard song (myxomatosis?) right after it. the transition to there there is terrible and really pretty boring. there there was still very good, but an odd combo to start the show.

National Anthem and Idioteque back to back was killer. Two of their best live songs, still awesome.

Bangers and Mash awesome live. Really liked Thom playing the drums.

You and Whose Army (not one of my favorites on the album) but great show live. Thom is great, and makes this song go live. Much like the last tour. Little bit of a flaming lips rip off as far as the tongue and cheek nature of the performance, but great none the less.

Talk Show Host was the one huge suprise, and better than ever. One of my favorite radiohead live tracks and really glad to see they didn't retire it.

The only ones I didn't like (still good but not great): 15 step falls flat live, and reckoner is just ok.

The only serious misstep of the whole evening is house of cards as the closer. awful choice to close the show, seemed like music for you just to leave to and not even stay to watch it. i like the song fine, but it really is weak as a closer.

That really is an amazing set, near-perfect. The only essential quality missing is Karma Police and I Might Be Wrong.

I can imagine House Of Cards being an awkward closer, I adore the song and can't wait until they come to Melbourne, but it just makes no sense as a closer.....

How is Wierd Fishies live?

for those interested, the 05-05 show from West Palm is up on Giglinkdump:

http://www.ronaldvdberg.nl/giglinkdump/

It's an audience recording and I won't vouch for the quality...
