25th feb, im tempted! ive been waiting to see a solo show for a while! might wait for sumthin closer to home though
*texts mrs ccb*
any idea when tickets go on sale?
google search said 12pm today
+ a £40 tank of petrol
= can't afford
Will go but I can't really afford it, £35 a throw!
which is why im tempted ,i might hold out tho in hope he does a few more this year at some point
did you get the £35.00 price from?
have it as not on sale yet...
Went on at 11:55 and got through but there weren't 2 tickets left, then it was sold out. Thom is in demand.
paid through the nose though :(
but still - thom yorke! in a small-ish venue! quite close to where i live! i'm very happy.
there goes meals for two weeks but how exciting...
i haven;t had any seetickets reference yet. Has anyone else?
but standing tickets are now sold out
got through then realised am already gigging that night ;-(
move your band to first on, that gives you a chance to get there for some of it...
£35 for a solo show though, Mr Yorke what are your overheads for dragging yourself and a guitar along and are ticket profits going somewhere worthwhile?
"he’ll be playing a one-off benefit show for Tony Juniper (who was the head of Friends of the Earth) who’s aiming to be the first MP from the Green party in Parliament"
looking for a ticket for this?
may have a spare. will know tomorrow.
I have to get an 11pm train home from the gig and would hate to have to leave early
hoping it finishes reasonably early.
have dropped the venue an email to enquire.
Thom Yorke's set is due to finish approximately 10:15pm, but will most likely do an encore after that. The venue curfew is 11pm for the gig tomorrow.
if you're heading towards kings lynn.
if you see a tall guy on the platform with a fold-up bike, say hi!

Such a respectful crowd too, I am London based, and all in all once of the most amazing live things I've seen. Mainly guitars, grand piano based but also used a loop station to build a few tracks.
Worth missing the last train and having to get a cab home to London? For sure.
how much was that?
Was a pretty perfect set, although I read he soundchecked Fog which would have topped things off nicely, more than exceeded any expectations.
Was £100 to my house in North London, there was 4 of us so not too bad, plus quicker than train.
Videotape was my highlight, always loved that song but last night it just blew me away.
The whole set was great from start to finish, had to leave part way through Atoms for Peace which was gutting
would have been the cherry on a cherry-packed cake.
Lovely atmosphere, kinda village hall like. He was in a surprisingly loose and playful mood. I still find it strange when people clap along to Harrowdown Hill - I mean, I know it has that funky bassline but it IS about a man's tragic suicide.
Airbag. Astonishing. I would have gone just for that.
in a bit of a train panic, but saw plenty to make it worthwhile.
highlights for me included 'like spinning plates' (always loved the solo version but never seen live in the flesh), 'arpeggi', 'cymbal rush' and 'pyramid song', but obviously getting to hear the new stuff was amazing.
'lotus flower' is so beautiful. i was surprised to hear him tackle 'these are my twisted words' on just an acoustic guitar. real shame i missed 'airbag' and 'atoms for peace'. would have loved to hear 'present tense', but i'm not complaining!
actually, if i was going to complain, i'd do so about the person in front of my who kept doing the worse shat-my-pants farts, and the cnut near me who was telling everyone how to enjoy themselves.
bloody good show, in short. respect to the train-missers. i was there on my own, though, so felt more of a need to secure my travel home!
totally exceeded my expectations in terms of the breadth of material covered and how well the more glitchy electronic material worked stripped down to just vocals and piano / guitar.
managed to stay just about til the end, left as soon as he finished "true love waits", ran to unlock my bike, pelted it hown hills road to the station and made it onto the train with 30 seconds to spare (last train left at 23.08 not 23.11 as i thought, so just about got there by the skin of my teeth!)
in fact the loudest noise was the sound of people's feet shuffling on the sticky floor! the corn exchange is a good venue for this as the bar is in a separate room to the concert hall.
excpet for the cunt security making all the blokes put their bags int he cloak room, but letting the girls put there's in. Sexism.
Had a pretty poor view (too many tall people!) but the setlist was amazing. Give up the Ghost is one of the best things Ive heard for a while and seeing thom in such an intimate and relaxed atmosphere was great.
Had to literally run to the station after true love waits and just about made it. Dont understand why they didnt move everything 30mins forward so if finished at half 10?? Especially with the long wait between doors and support.
Oh and wasnt Pete Um one of the funniest things you've ever seen :D That song at the end where he stared at the audience while wearing bright green glasses for 5 minutes to the background of alien noises had me in stitches, intentional or not haha
