-Voice of Thom Yorke is really superb. He do what he wants and 2 hours life of this quality not a joke
-Sound. I thought that the clean and brilliant sound of Radiohead was mainly a result of studio recording and production work. It is a wrong assumption. Life sound is perfect and if possible better than studio recording. The organization and the sound system was perfect.
-Public and fans. It is difficult to believe than Radiohead is so popular (their music is not so easy). Yesterday there were 60000 attendance to the concert. I never saw so much people all together. I can think that anyway a lot of people was there also because "Monza idays" is becoming an important appointment 80000 tickets sold out today (in this moment Linkin Park are playing, Blink 182, Sum 41 also today. Green Day June 15). Music for all generations (my daughter is there tonight !!!)
At the end I am happy to say "I was there".... and today I am listening to Radiohead again and again!!!
Supporting the few rows above I am just reading to enthusiastics reiew (Rockol and Corriere della sera).

Good performance as usual also with this new revised band.
The sound and melodies are unmistakable and catchy.
Like a good wines also Wire don' t care about years.

There is another interesting video of the re-recording of "Serious" in 2010 (in my opinion probably better than the original one).

1984-1985-1989-1992-2016.........more than 30 years and it seems yesterday. It is always an emotional experience to join THE CURE concerts !!! Yesterday night at Assago Forum it was a great event with 2016 Cure show. More than 2 hours with the complete Cure history from "Three Imaginary boys" to "Lovecats" and of course the evergreen "A Forest". CURE Live shows were always full of music power and also in this 2016 tour there is a sound wall with bass and drums as background for fine guitars lyrics and Robert Smith voice (really not so bad compared to 30 years ago). And As Robert says..."see you again"
It was a wonderful night also because I was really near (pratically on the stage) and Peter demonstrate to be a great professionist of the music world. three elements (Peter + guitar + bass) but enough to fill the ambient with a delicious sound. Nothing to do with dark of gothic movement performance.
Great Peter, waiting for next time!!!

The concert at the end was not bad. 1 and a half hour of music and the audience (average age around 20 y) satisfied also for the announcement of a new album in October.
Different from what I normally listen for but anyway MUSIC.
