  • I thought Thom didn´t like optimistic. How great, I love that song!

  • OMG I hope they keep playing Optimistic!!!

  • Wow, 2X Optimistic, I thought that song was completely dead and forgotten.

  • EXCITED ABOUT OPTIMISTIC! I saw it once before, in the BIG TOP TOUR in 2000, would be psyched if they play this in Milano!

  • I really hope they don’t continue to play Myxamatosis this tour or at least for Toronto. Awful, though catchy, song.

  • just got home from the gig:

    what an
    awesome day:)

  • if they brought back optimistic i wonder what other songs they brought back

  • I don’t get myxomatosis at all. It’s one of the worst radiohead songs in my opinion. maybe i’m missing something.

    I liked their evening set better. It had more OK Computer! (I love Kid A and Amnesiac but Bends/OK Computer songs work much better live.

  • Myxomatosis is greeeeeat!

    Don’t get how you cannot get it…

  • I didn’t realise anyone didn’t like myxomatosis until now! It’s incredibly good.

  • Was the first take of Optimistic not good? I’ve never heard of an encore that is a repeat of a song in the set. Good song though. Big fish eats the little one.

  • I am SO glad that optimistic is back in their live set! But twice is unusual. Meanwhile, isn’t ‘In Rainbows’ called ‘Reckoner’? Does anyone know where to download this?

  • myxomatosis is fantastic. especially in toronto because people pass in the pit out and thom can save them.

  • yes the first take of optomistic went
    wrong so they did it agian. This was
    a recording for radio after all. Oh and
    Sandy, I hope you wernt the d**k h**d
    on the front row of the balcony
    who repeatedly took photos even though
    security kept on asking him not to and
    caused commotion that was spoiling it for
