  • hope I get them :X

  • I wish that single tickets were sold, but you’re required to purchase 2 tickets. 1 ticket I can afford. 2 I cannot afford. :0(

  • Los Angeles!!?? sucks. come play Chicago. stay at my place; I have an attic filled with lollipops and crisps.

  • And what about the carbon footprint ? Wasn’t Thom in Copenhagen, claiming that nobody were doing anything for the planet ?
    Couldn’t Radiohead have done a show for Haiti in Europe ?
    I don’t understand Thom yorke anymore. His ideas has become as hypocritical and opportunistic as Bono’s !

  • The band is in LA recording… they might as well play a show while they are there. Why would they fly back to Europe for the cause?

  • I Love Living in Los Angeles… sunny shine and Radiohead

  • Gotta love that sunny smog.

  • Ornella: Thom has been in LA for quite sometime. He’s living here as he does his music Super Band thing (hence solo shows in LA) and recording at a private home studio. Like Chicken wrote, why would he go back to Europe? The boys are here. Thom just DJ’d a set at SpaceLand recently.
    Anthony: You’re right! Living in LA can be hard BUT it so rocks!! Can’t wait till tomorrow night!!!!!!!

  • Re: Carbon Footprint,

    How could Thom be in LA and do that BBC radio show the other day in London at the same time? Just saying…

  • Catching a plane a couple of times is hardly going to harm the world. Whereas making a green tour will save alot of emmisions.

  • I bet Radiohead plays Coachella. They have their album coming out soon and they’re playing the benefit show. Thom Yorke has question marks after his name (four, could stand for the other four members of the band.). Also they love to suprise…

  • I’m sure there doing a lot of practical good in the world as far as raising money, but the whole activist musician thing is kind of annoying to me in principle.

  • it’d be great to hear some of the stuff they’re working on. it’s always fun understanding how a song evolved after the first few times. really cool of the guys to do this, wish you all a wonderful time. fuck earthquakes that aren’t created by radiohead.

  • to Justin and Ornella

    How can you too be so idiot???? The footprint problem is something Thom can’t control, what do you prefer: Thom living in Oxford the rest of his life or joining the band here and there to record and play the shows the fans want so bad? And Thom recorded that show with Gilles Peterson two weeks ago! before the band went to LA to record the NEW album. They are doing a show in LA because they are THERE at the moment! Learn to get info before talking sh*t!

  • Sammm – I understand your massive boner for the band, I too wear one with pride. I was simply stating a point. I think the band are doing far more good than harm in the long run. You should learn to open a dialogue before jumping down one’s throat, asshole.

  • Anger i sense in you, radiohead fans.

  • I hope they play new songs! I need new songs!

  • [...] que la banda a  va a tocar horita un show en Los Ángeles recaudando fondos para Haiti, voy a ponerlos alante (a ustedes, lectores good looking) con uno de los mejores bootlegs de [...]

  • has no one made it back from the show yet?……. setlist please :)
