maybe mine is more discriminating.   :elitist:  but seriously, the gloaming?  it is probably the worst song on any radiohead album and they OPENED with it.  and kid a is useless live.  the new songs are good though.  i enjoyed them more than most of the other stuff.

 :nono: 

You just like a different Radiohead than I do.  And admittedly, last night's show was more for the fans who have seen them: A) more than once; and B) more than once in the last 5 years.  You should have gone to the Tuesday night show from the looks of it.

Gloaming is one of my 5 least favorite songs on any post-Pablo album but when they do it live, Colin is the star and he just makes the song whole.  They did pretty much the same arrangement on their 2003 tour and it made me stop skipping the song when I listen to HTTT.

And I'll take Kid A live over Treefingers or Hunting Bears live any day.

Yeah, Gloaming is amazing live.. I think that Mod should have just stayed home and listened to the songs he wanted to hear on CD and pretended he was at the concert... that setlist is a great setlist, based on live performances.

Say what you want about Treefingers, but don't knock Hunting Bears.

if the band had just sucked that night or i had terrible seats it would have been easier to take.  but the fact that they did SOUND great and PLAYED great made it more heartbreaking when i just could not get into what they were playing.  i was really excited, i had familiarized myself with the new material and had seen enough setlists to have some idea of what they have been playing recently so i was just not prepared for this.  becksparrow is right, i would've been much happier on night one.  i have suffered more radiohead related heartbreak than i can even describe and this was no exception.  :(

I'm not knocking Hunting Bears in and of itself.  It's just not what I want to hear when I see them in concert.  Those 2 songs bring everything to a halt no matter where they're placed in a show.

I really, really want to hear these at the show I'm going to.  Throw in "We Suck Young Blood," "2 + 2 = 5," "How To Disappear Completely," and some requisite Bends/OK Computer faves and I'll be happy.

i've seen them twice. on the HTTT tour my biggest hopes to hear were Big Ideas (the old way), Airbag, Kid A, Myxomatosis and We Suck Young Blood. they play Karma Police and PA at almost every show, so i didn't really care to hear those again. Idioteque is so good that I wouldn't mind hearing it every time I see them.

The presence of one of President Bush's twin daughters at a Radiohead concert at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York last week has frontman Thom Yorke fuming. In a post to Radiohead's blog, "Dead Air Space," Yorke wrote that the concert was interrupted for several fans thanks to six Secret Service Agents, who cleared a path for the first daughter's exit and "manhandled ... some poor soul." Yorke wrote that the incident left the band with a multiple-choice quandary. "I don't know whether we should be A. honored; B. amused; C. bemused; D. ask if she had a valid ticket; E. object belatedly on moral grounds; F. ask again if she had a ticket and question whether this [is] really what our gigs are about; G. don't blame the daughter for the father; H. shut up and smile."

I have no complaints, not even regarding the setlist, which omitted many of the songs that I originally "really want[ed]" to hear.
yeah your setlist was still about 1000 times better than mine.
