    Does anyone know how many tickets were sold / how many people were there? This felt like a festival size-wise.

    I was well pleased with the set list. I couldn't give a shit about the OK Computer-ish stuff so it was ideal for me. They played pretty much every song I wanted to hear and the closing two were perfect. Well pleased. Nice one to the crowd down the front who actually knew how to enjoy a show aswell. Nice seeing you all.

    Lets be fair - Tuesday was still very good. But I was very jealous when I heard Paranoid Android, My Iron Lung, Lucky etc had been played on the Wednesday. I was definitely disappointed they didn't play PA, which I thought was a given to be honest. But then again, I can't think of too many songs on Tuesday that I didn't really like. I could def have done without the Gloaming though. I reckon they were just 2-3 song selections away from giving us an awesome set on Tuesday - maybe Paranoid Android instead of The Gloaming, and something by Radiohead instead of Cymbal Rush

    Lmao. Yea I've got a strange obbsessive complusive urge to see it tick over to 1,000. If it doesn't I may have to create some accounts and make sure it does.

    Yeah it's pretty good. Sarah is a big favourite of mine, shame she didn't play it. The version on the b-side of What's A Girl To Do is particularly good.

    She's only done one so it shouldn't be too hard a choice. It's a great one though.

    i dont really know what to do now. I just seem to walk around my house. I can't really talk to my friends, espcially those who didn't go - they just don't understand my condition. Yesterday I woke up sucking on lemons.

    Ed's OK. He's got his tamborine, guitar, and electronic goodies for Idioteque. also he gets to do the backup singing :D

    Wednesday night was great, but I definitely think the setlist was clearly SO much better on the Tuesday there's just no argument, I can't understand why people are knocking it - Pyramid Song, You And Whose Army, Airbag, How to Disappear Completely, The Gloaming, and Just were all amazing, and they played Climbing Up The Walls!, Planet Telex!!, Thom Yorke did Cymbal Rush!!! from The Eraser, and best of all they played THE TOURIST!!!! Have you any idea how rare that spellbinding song is to hear live! Of the 6 times I've seen Radiohead it's the first time they haven't played Karma Police and Paranoid Android, I don't blame them, they must be sick of playing them, whereas Planet Telex and the Tourist really deserve an airing. These people who complain and want more "hits", just stay at home and listen to your EMI Greatest Hits CD. In contrast on Wednesday The Bends sounded slow and tired (i could swear they played it 5/10 bpm slower than usual), and Myxamtosis and Optimist didn't sound on the same level as the rest of the set. Neither night comes close to Oxford in 2001 though! By the way did anyone else feel really sorry for poor Ed, it seems like Thom hardly let's him do anything these days, he's made to stand around most of the time while Tom and Jonny play seven instruments between them, poor guy!

    Actually, I though the Tuesday setlist was pretty good. They played all my favourites on the night (Climbing Up The Walls is my all time favourite - I would have been gutted if they hadn't played that) and I went away pretty happy, particularly as they played a lot of IR tracks. Still, setlists are never going to please everyone.

    Sorry, I don't like the Foo Fighters or Muse. Can't quite see how that follows from me preferring the set list of the second night, but anyway...upon reflection, there was some great Kid A/Amnesiac era stuff that I had neglected to remember in the initial feelings of disappointment. Great stuff! And hey, I can finally cross Radiohead off the list of bands I need to see. :)

    don't be sad, tuesday people, you got Pyramid Song and Planet Telex and Climbing Up The Walls and You and Whose Army and How To Disappear completely, none of which us wednesday folk got!

    Those people bitching about the lack of "hits" can go and see the Foo Fighters, Muse or some other commercial bollocks. This was a fantastic set.

    Andover, they played Idioteque both nights. I'm so glad I went to both because I was really disappointed after the show on Tuesday, I thought there wasn't any atmosphere and the band didn't perform like I've seen them perform before. Shame really that there was such a big difference in quality but Tuesday was still a good night.
