The crowd was even worse where I was sitting - granted, I was shunted off to the side of the amphitheater. But the people next to me were using binocs despite the fact that we were in section 115 - about as far away as the box seats. Cunts.
Anyhow, the more I reflect on this concert, the more it seems the polar opposite of my experience at the Jun 25 Vic Park show. No moshing, no drunken singalongs competing with Thom. A good balance of tracks from all their albums - I appreciated the emphasis on Kid A - as opposed to Vic Park's stew of singles, rockers and tracks from IR.
This was Radiohead on top form, and they managed to hit every song I was praying they would play. There are only two songs I need to see them play live still: Fake Plastic Trees and Just. Those can wait for another show. I am ridiculously happy with what I got.
