Until this evening, Radiohead was the only of my favourite bands I had yet to see perform live. 10 weeks ago, my wife and I moved from Tennessee, USA to Glasgow. Within a few days of our arrival, I found out that Radiohead was scheduled to play the SECC, but that it was already sold out. To make a long but joyous story shorter, I was able to get tickets at the last minute from a chap who couldn't use them, and hence (to quote my wife) our 'dream came true'! It was a simply wonderful night and I couldn't be happier with my first (but surely not last) experience of seeing this revolutionary band in concert--we coaxed 2 encores! The whole night was one giant 'highlight', but my personal weepy moments included 'Paranoid Android', 'Fake Plastic Trees', 'How to Disappear Completely', 'My Iron Lung', 'Just', every sound created by Johnny Greenwood, and Thom's dancing and laughter. I'm glad he's found a happy place. It makes me happy, too.

First let me say the boys done good . . . The SECC however does not have great acoustics and requires a bit more thought sound-wise. Thom's guitar volume on big opener "There There" was too low, and "Myxomatosis" was a furry mess lacking articulation. The band should possibly invest some of their hard earned bucks in a better sound engineer.

Few bands I have seen put as much effort into their live work as Radiohead and two hours barely does them justice . . . so many great songs, so little time. I would have been happy if they only played "HTTT" in its entirety, but of course some songs had to go . . . so into room 101 went "I Will" and "We Suck Young Blood" to make way for "My Iron Lung" and "Fake Plastic Trees", lovely as they are.

All in all a pretty fine night out.

As the band strolled on stage to a mass of beats and loops the 10000 strong crowd went into hysteria. As the first beats of There There began to ring out it was clear why this band receive so much adulation north of the border.

They played a set mainly consisting of the new album. Unlike most bands Radiohead's songs actually sound better live and none more so than Fake Plastic Trees. After 5 or 6 songs, heavily dominated by Hail to the Thief, the fisrt strum of Thom's acoustic was met with an ocean of applause.
From this point onwards the entire crowd was in the hand of this surprisingly charismatic frontman. Very rarely standing still, Thom seemed at ease on such a stage. He clearly revelled in his new found freedom on stage that songs such as I Might Be Wrong and Idioteque seem to allow him. His playful gestures to the crowd inceased as the show went on.
The only criticism I can make was that two encores could still not produce Street Spirit. However this only serves to underline the magnitude of the band that 10000 people trooped out of the SECC without noticing. They were safe in the knowledge they had experienced a band at their energetic best.

Fucking unbleivable. This was my first Radiohead gig and it exceeded ALL expectations. Already trying to find out the next time that I can go see them.

The band were incredible-really full of energy and the music...words cannot describe, seriously HTTT sounds amazin live, and of course all the old classics like "No Surprises" (thank you Thom Yorke) "Paranoid Android" "Fake Plastic Trees" and "Karma Police", which had the whole crowd singin along-played to perfection. Didnt play "Talk Show Host", "Street Spirit" or "Exit Music" which I really wanted to hear but they have so many classics guess it'd be impossible to play them all.

They seemed really into it and were smiling and laughing along with the crowd, as well as Thom getting a chord wrong and then singin "We have to learn from our mistakes!" which was so cool. And Thom's dancing? Total class!! :)

Highlights were def "Idioteque", "I Might Be Wrong" (was right down at the front and being 3 yards away from the stage more than made up for the lack of oxygen), "Myxamatosis", "The National Anthem", "Sit Down Stand Up", "Everything in It's Right Place" and Thom winking at me (I swear he did lol!!) in fact the entire night was a highlight, without sounding over the top the only word i can think of to describe the gig is euphoric. Can safely say I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
