First live show in nine years, and nobody knew what to expect, and everyone was blown away. A truly legendary performance that proved once again that none of the other festivals in America can top Coachella. Sure, they played Lollapalooza and Vegoose in 2007, but by then everyone knew what amazingness to expect.

Perhaps one of the greatest Coachella performances ever. 20 years from now, people will still be talking about this. I feel so privileged for having been there and witnessing it. I had butterflies before they come on, not knowing what the expect. All the lights went off, the crowd was silent, then the Close Encounters music hit, and then curtain pulled up to reveal the robots in a pyramid. I'm still sorta speechless to this day. Unreal.

nothing rivaled this performance until Portishead in 2008. All I could talk about for months on end was how brilliant and mindblowing this show was and i couldn't even get inside the tent.
