    Best Radiohead show of the 6 I've seen. Incredible setlist, and while I don't usually go nuts over a rarity for the sake of it being a rarity, "Packt Like Sardines In a Crushd Tin Box" was fucking awesome. Also, while I'm not entirely a fan of "Pyramid Song" on record, it was great live. This light show is incredible. Can't wait to see them at Coachella.

    I was front and center, sounded great, looked awesome....It was a great stage production and setlist, loved that first encore, and loved 'airbag' and 'packt...' ... I can't wait to see them again at Coachella!

    It was great seeing everyone last night. That was by far the largest board-meetup-not-actually-at-Coachella that I've been to. We should have got a group photo!

    I agree Tom, it was really good to see you all and to meet new people. It made me even more excited for Coachella.

    Amazing show, and Thom's voice was spot on! I can't believe there were 3 HTTT songs and both Airbag AND Paranoid. The only song I didn't like was Identikit, which I hadn't heard before. It was great seeing everyone before the show. Sorry I left early from nerves.

    Amy, it was pretty crazy in there, I left at 7 for the same reason, SO MANY PEOPLE!

    Trying to get out of the parking lot was a nightmare too. I imagine that was even more crazy after the show.

    A bit of a long line getting in for floor tickets. I think it was almost a 40 minute wait. I finally got to the floor as the lights went out and they hit the stage. Perfect timing. That floor wasn't even half full. I retreated once I got a bit warm which was after about 5 or 6 songs. I ran into TomAZ and watched a bit of the show with him from just to the left of the sound board. This was my first real Radiohead show and I liked it. I wasn't expecting that much of a stage show but the lights with the buildups and layers of music were pretty intense. As i've stated a million times i'm more of casual Radiohead fan. None of their songs are very personal to me but they sounded exceptional and it's easy to see why they deserve so much praise. I left slightly early, probably about 10:30 or so. Nice seeing those of you I ran into

    Set list was amazing. Definitely some surprises for me. I agree with most, "Packt" was incredible.

    One complaint, which has nothing to do with the band...a venue issue, was being in the back...the sound at times was toooo quiet! Also, seemed a bit muddy at the beginning. Thom's voice was drowned out. They fixed that, thankfully. How was everyone else as far as sound? I was dead center, lower level, but all the way back.

    Also, great seeing everyone pre-show! Can't wait to see you all on the Fields.

    Never in my life did I expect to grab the rail at a Radiohead show. But thanks to the ticket chaos and some dumb luck, I did, and I had a concert experience that I don't think I'll ever top. It was dazzling and emotional for me and the girlfriend, who bonded in part over Radiohead two years ago but couldn't get to see them until last night.

    Highlights for us were making Ed laugh by screaming extra loud during the 15 Step cue, Myxomatosis, PACKT (which they played at my first RH show more than 10 years ago), dancing so hard during Feral->Idioteque that my legs still hurt, the light shows for There There and Lotus Flower, and HTDC/Reckoner during the encores. And the PA closer...

    Thom was completely engaged, in the moment, and enjoying every second. Colin is the greatest living human, and Clive Deamer is god. Only flaw in the show was Jonny messing up Kid A to some extent with too much reverb.

    Finally, I must remark on Supre's uncanny ability to both A.) be at the absolute front of the line and B.) look as if he couldn't care less about being there. Well played.

    Going to Coachella and a couple more of these... Glad I have Separator and Staircase to look forward to!

    only gripe is not getting separator. but a tiny, tiny gripe in comparison to what we got.

    I spent the first 45 minutes of the set up fairly close, within 30 feet (or so) of Ed. I also noticed Thom's voice seemed drowned out and the sound wasn't all that great. After Pyramid Song I needed to get out from where I was so I moved back to the soundboard area and the sound seemed much better.

    Also, I'm curious if others shared this experience..

    It felt to me like the first part of the show was a little flat. Like they were just up there doing their job, doing a decent job of it, but it felt more studied than inspired. But then somewhere along there, they started to get really interested in what they were doing and caught fire so that the second half plus the encores were really great.

    Also, I have significant new respect for "Feral". wow. that bassline's been in my head all morning this morning.

    I wanted the guitar to be louder during Paranoid Android. :-)
    Also, I loved hearing Packt but I couldn't hear that synth bass line well, and that bothered me. My kids got really tired and anxious to leave near the end, so that took a but out of it as well.

    Did anyone see my glow sticks during Idioteque?

    That was me and my kids. And my brother threw a green one between Idioteque and the first encore because he forgot to do it on time. :-P

    Was it right before the first or second encore when Thom came on stage and did a little jig/dance? You could tell he/they were feeling it.

    I also agree with whoever said they felt like they were floating away during the first encore.

    Goddamn what a show. Screaming so hard during Packt and PA... Those are probably my too biggest highlights, along with Pyramid Song. The new songs sound great also.

    Also, my girlfriend and I showed up at 8:30 got right in and on the floor as Bloom started, then snuck up the left side of the floor until we were about 20 feet from the stage. Amazing show... So fucking happy I ended up with floor tickets, felt great to be that close.

    To be honest, I don't understand anyone's want to line up insanely early for this show. Especially since tickets were will call (fiasco). If we wanted, we could have easily gotten up even closer, and we showed up so late... I mean, I understand if you want to be on the rail, but seriously it wasn't hard to get a good spot.

    The encores last night.... Fuck what a night

    Yeah, we walked into the venue 30 minutes before Radiohead came on and we got a fantastic spot.

    But you missed everyone waiting in the wrong line at the gates for WASTE tickets. Then realizing the box office was releasing the tickets then they needed to be wristbanded. Then realizing they needed to enter through other gates.
    Fair to say, the communication wasn't great at the arena. But that wasn't helped by fans deliberately misleading others and sending fans to the wrong gates/lines etc.
