  1. Wow, your line story sounds traumatic! Ironic that waiting in line overnight for ticket centers to open came up in this convo, cuz my favorite story about waiting all night in line was my friend's story and she was waiting for REM tix. She was actually excited to do it, it was her 1st time, and she and her friend were all ready to camp out with a bunch of REM diehards. But there was a key piece of info she didn't know until she got there... the next morning, REM wasn't the only show going onsale. Ratt tickets were going onsale too!! Remember them, the hair metal band Ratt? They wer
  2. Enjoying this discussion! Heartofglass, I'm getting worried that you haven't checked in yet - everything ok? How did the show go for you?
  3. You're a rockstar for even reading it all, and I'm very glad you enjoyed it! It felt good to write it, especially with last night having been my last Radiohead show this tour and me being all nostalgic already about that, so fun to go back yesterday and write all that out.
  4. Soooooo... I have some great news! Bad news for you if you really are attached to your Kid A cd sleeve... I spent both Philly shows sitting near/in the band's guest section, spoke to several people with AAA passes or who were not only AAA but clearly working for them closely (i.e. just kept coming out doing things for the guests or giving guests passes). Long story short, NO, this is NOT a farewell tour. It may be awhile before we get a new Radiohead album and then another tour, so we should be ready to wait quite a while, but no, this is NO "farewell tour", not doing an REM where
  5. heart of glass, if you were at the show last night, you weren't wearing a yellow shirt and in the GA section were you? Someone passed out and needed medical attention last night and I was worried it was you!
  6. Hi there Sleepy Jack, 1st off maybe we were at the same (or close to same) Great Woods show with REM, because I also saw Luscious Jackson open at Great Woods on Monster (or what tour was that if not Monster?). But I feel like I saw Grant Lee Buffalo too, just can't remember what year that was. 2nd, I'm about to post setlists for both the 2 shows I talked to Peter Buck about, but I should clarify first and give context for why, after seeing about 1,500+ concerts in my life (probably closer to 2,000 now) this show stands out SO MUCH. Sorry, this will be long, but you did ask It's
  7. heartofglass did you go last night or is your show tonight? If you went last night, what did you think and how do you feel today?
  8. helter skelter, I don't know if your theory about this being the band's farewell tour is true or not, but I DO know that you saying that and others agreeing with you has a direct correlation and causation with the OUTRAGEOUS amount of money I spent at the merch tableS!! Yes, that's tableS, because I already covered that the merch tables are different from each other. (No, didn't buy one of everything, just kept seeing new individual items that weren't at other merch stands)
  9. I'm just back from Boston 2 and I'm not sure MY heart was able to handle tonight's show, it was so amazing! Heartofglass you'll have a great time and I'm rooting for you to not need *any* medical attention!
  10. Wow. That is QUITE a story! I am now totally rooting for you, your heart, and your mind (because hopefully your heart will be fine but your mind will be blown) and I hope you have a life-changing (in only positive ways) experience at your Philly show! Your situation also makes my situation for Philly seem silly in comparison. It was already a huge drain on my work and family situation to go to both Boston and then both Philly shows on weeknights (cuz I live in DC), but I bought tix for all 4 shows and figured I'd figure it out later. Then some other important financial/family stuff came
  11. hackd, I was there, not in GA but in row 3 of reserved so with a perfect view of GA. No seats in GA (unless you're sitting with the sound and light crew). Radiohead seems to usually only sell enough tix that it is crowded in front but you can also hang back and have a view of hte stage from maybe midway back on the floor. The back of the floor had plenty of space to move around, though there were people sprinkled everywhere. You only need to get there early if you're intent on being in the very front, in which case if you're only reading this now you're probably too late for that fo
  12. I reject that notion (as applied to Radiohead anyway, cuz current events says that song is actually right...). But I do love that song. But I reject the notion!
  13. Noobs Unite! Start marinating that cd sleeve... it's in your digestive future!
  14. What is a "DAS post"? And for the record, nothing against you but I really hope that a year after this tour ends, we'll all be watching video of you trying to chew and swallow your Kid A cd sleeve, maybe with some ketchup and chasing it back with your drink of choice... Because, of course, without video, you eating the cd sleeve didn't happen. It won't be easy on your tummy but it would be far preferable than all zillion of us crying and trying to cuddle with our Radiohead music collections while in therapy.
  15. Lucky you Sleepy Jack, you saw that combo! I'm full of envy (and happy for you)! Trust me, I was stunned that Peter Buck could recall that specific show. It was 30 yrs earlier, and I KNOW he remembered specifics because some of the specifics he remembered about how the 2 night stand went were exactly what I remember about why the 1st night was one of the less good REM shows I saw, and the 2nd night remains my #1 best REM show and concert ever from a fan perspective. He didn't remember the 2nd show as some stellar outrageously superior REM show the way I did, but he remembered the shows
  16. As a rabid REM fan (seriously, I've seen over 1,000 concerts, and while a Radiohead show is in my top 5 ever, REM is in the #1 spot), I still gotta say... I do NOT see how you think Radiohead is an REM rip off. Good point in reply above about Electioneering. But other than that, no, don't see it at all. Doesn't mean REM didn't influence Radiohead musically, or their members personally; given how early in Radiohead's career they supported REM, and how much REM loved and still loves Radiohead, I'm sure there was some cross-fertilization there. But an REM rip off? Don't see that in a
  17. My most precious piece of Radiohead memorabilia is in storage at the moment, but it's a backstage pass for a non-Radiohead event that was supposed to be for Thom, but when I checked in to get my pass (I was working) the guy in charge of the passes didn't have any blank ones so he looked for a name he thought he could cross out on the ones he had. (This was a LOOOOONG time ago!) He finally finds a name, looks at it like "No idea who this is" and crosses the name out, writes mine over it, and gives it to me. After a night working at the event as people were leaving and some people were hea
  18. So seems like everybody here is all set in terms of those who wanted to go to Boston? I know I'm offering this late, but I didn't even know this board existed (I'm tech-clueless). Well, to all those going to Boston, sounds like we're all in for a fantastic ride!! Hope you enjoy the shows tremendously, I imagine I will!
  19. Wow, I truly TRULY hope you guys are wrong about this being a farewell tour! But in the sad event it turns out to be, you at least are making me feel MUCH better about the fact that the timing of these Boston shows and the Philly shows has become a royal clusterf**k in my life in terms of other adult responsibilities. In a lot of ways, the responsible thing to do would have been to cancel this trip to Boston (I live in DC) and sell the tix and definitely skip Philly. But I've tried to manage the other issues and made peace with the imperfection of the situation, and here I sit in Boston
  20. Hello everyone, I'm brand new here, but not at all brand new to Radiohead (I think I've seen every tour since Pablo Honey). I'm THRILLED to be going to both of this weekend's concerts in Boston, probably the only shows on this leg of the tour that I'll get to see. And from what I read here and what I've heard elsewhere, they are in top form! I bought 2 single tickets to Saturday's show and the friend I was holding the other ticket for can't go now, so I have one single ticket in Loge 11, row 5 available for face value. Not sure if people are looking but feel free to get in touch if y
