    Neither I nor the wife were able to get tickets for L.A.

    Not too bothered since we already saw the show last year in November.

    I was so blown away by the show, I don't think I mentioned that Philly 1 I was within view of Tim Reynolds (TR3 and Dave Matthews Band member), and Lars Ulrich of Metallica.  It was BEYOND cool to not only be so totally caught up in the moment of a band and live show that was phenomenal, but to also look around and within a couple of rows of me see 2 musicians I have tons of respect for also rocking out in their ways (like, literally sometimes, or just subtlely jamming others).

    Watching Lars Ulrich air-drum to Phil Selway's drumming will be a fan experience I will not forget for a long while!

    Many kids of band members were also in front of us.  At the end of Night 2, before most of the band was even off the stage, Colin Greenwood ran off the stage and into the audience and swooped up a child who I assume was his son, cute young kid, and carried him backstage while the rest of the band was still leaving.  It was a very sweet moment.
    Lars was at the Thom Yorke solo show in Oakland in December, too. He must be a big fan.

    Lars was actually at the last 4 on this 2018 tour (both Boston and both Philly), so yeah, I'd say a giant fan!

    These shows were really memorable.  I have not been able to stop listening to Radiohead. Man they sounded fantastic on this tour.

    You guys have caused me to go on a Radiohead binge with this thread.  I have put them on the back burner for a few years.  Every time they get put on the front burner, I listening to them over and over. 

    In Rainbows is so addictive.

    I decided the other day that it's time for me to 'rediscover' Radiohead. Apart from a few old favourites here and there, it's been a long time since I've really listened to them. Like many I was a big fan of The Bends and OK Computer, and I saw them live a bunch of times in the 90s, but I pretty much zoned out after Amnesiac.

    The first time I saw them they were supporting James in December 93 in Newport (South Wales) on their 'Laid' tour. I wasn't a big fan of Pablo Honey, but we got in early to get a good spot for James. I remember they opened with The Bends, which was weird because nobody there had really heard it before. It was a pretty good set, but I don't remember much else about it (James were amazing, by the way!)
    The most memorable show for me was in Cardiff in 97, on the OKC tour. Teenage Fanclub and DJ Shadow were supporting them. When TF finished their set, Shadow started almost straight away - he had set up behind us in the mixing desk area so everyone had to turn around to see him. This meant that Radiohead were ready to go as soon as Shadow finished so there wasn't really any break between bands.

    I still picked up their new albums when they came out, more in the hope that I would still like them than anything else, but I just couldn't get into them. I don't think I've ever even heard King Of Limbs (my copy was still sealed when I dug it out at the weekend), and I think I only played Moon Shaped Pool once. Not sure how I'll go with listening to the albums back to back - wish me luck!

    Aside from The King of Limbs, I think their catalog is fantastic. Their music grew along with them (and me) and I've enjoyed being a fan of them for about 25 years now. I hope you enjoy your listening experience!

    Hate to bring this up but RH is nominated for the R&R Hall of Fame again. I shouldn't care but it was a complete joke that they didn't get inducted last year. This is compounded by me being so happy for PJ the year before getting in on their first try - in other words, this "institution" has no consistent logic!

    They should have made it in the first time - I also don't really care, but I guess one should still expect the truly obvious ones to make it in the first time around... but then it didn't happen. I'm not even saying that with a fan bias. It seemed like a very clear choice objectively, but nope.

    They were included in the 2018 nominations, but didn't get in. I guess they must have included the Drill EP, which was released in 1992

    Weren’t they actually eligible last year but they said it should go to LL Cool J or something instead of them?

    They said they wouldn't show if nominated. I'm guessing that hasn't changed. Yann isn't gonna induct someone who has no intention of playing along.

    Then the whole thing is officially a joke (if it wasn't already).

    THIS is the accurate truth.  I know a couple of people who used to be in the select group of nominators and voters, although the process has a public angle to it now.  While I have not spoken to any of the people I know specifically about Radiohead, I've heard a lot about ridiculous factors that went into who did and didn't get in in various years, and I'm positive of 2 things: 

    1. Radiohead was eligible in the last round but was not chosen; and 
    2. Radiohead saying ahead of time that they won't show for an induction ceremony absolutely affected them getting in last year.  

    They are far too widely recognized as game changers and hugely influential on music to not induct them the 1st time around.  There is also a ridiculous number of crazy, nothing-to-do-with-quality-of-music factors that go into who gets in or not.

    Somthing that personally both amused me and annoyed me: Jann Wenner (Rolling Stone's Editor In Chief and co-founder of the Rock Hall of Fame) was against the (EDITED TO CORRECT:) RAMONES getting in!  I'm pretty sure now that I think of it it was the Ramones year he boycotted (along with a few others).  That was the same year Tom Petty and the Talking Heads got in!  But it was still because he didn't think they were a legit influence on rock.

    I thought this year's ceremony was pathetic. In the same year Radiohead was first nominated and denied, Mark Knopfler decides not to show up with the rest of Dire Straits. Did he make up his mind after it was announced Dire Straits would get in or before?

    I just edited my post above because the more I think of it, I'm pretty sure it was the Ramones and not the Clash that Jann Wenner boycotted the ceremony about.  Which was the year before the Clash were inducted, and of course it was Eddie who inducted the Ramones, mohawk and all.  Isaac Hayes also got inducted that year, which was awesome!

    Radiohead should be inducted this year AND issued an apology for not being let in last year - not that they are looking for one...or would accept one!

    The Hall of Fame is a joke. Knowing that they’ll only induct bands who play by their rules hammers home that point for me.

    Knowing that Radiohead feels the way they do about the whole thing only endears me to them more.

    Its a silly organization. Its fun to honor bands and these artists do deserve it, but the concept of it is pretty ridiculous.

    The Hall also openly admitting they fucked up putting the Hall in Cleveland by avoiding not only Cleveland, but the entire midwest in their ceremony is also kind of funny / sad.

    In my quest to find some Radiohead soundboard bootlegs, I came across this great resource online and wanted to pass along. http://essentialradioheadbootlegs.tumblr.com 
    I've only listened to a few shows so far, but the quality is excellent and I recommend checking 'em out!  My faves so far- '06 Bonnaroo and both of the "From the Basement" recordings.  B)

    Great show indeed but he did say that quite awhile ago. They played some outstanding shows this past summer!

    That must have been awesome to see them back then.  Agreed, the Bonnaroo boot sounds incredible!    It’s fun checking other shows out...Utrecht 97 sounds great, too

    @23skidoo- I’ve only found flac files so far through that particular bootleg website
