"So who here doesn’t know about it?" he asks apprehensively after finishing a breathless Pyramid Song from the Amnesiac album.

"Everybody knows what I’m talking about?" There’s silence for a response.

"Dunno what I’m talking about? You don’t know about the aeroplanes in America? You don’t know…" his voice trails and someone shouts out "shit" with the force of a fullstop.

"Somebody tell ‘em," retorts Yorke with no anger.

"I’ll tell ya. Well I can’t remember it all now… two… two jets... two ahhh… three… I dunno I’ve lost count… four jets? How many?" he turns to guitarist Ed O’Brien who tells him it is four.

"Four jets," Yorke continues, "One crashed into the Pentagon. Two crashed into the World Trade Centre. One got shot out the sky by the Americans…" he turns to O’Brien, "You’re saying it crashed as well?"

The crowd has taken all this quietly and now someone hollers "bullshit" much like the legendary "Judas" exclamation that got Dylan going in ’66 at the Manchester Free Trade Hall. But tonight there’s a great sadness in Radiohead’s performance.

"So… that’s why, y’know, things are a little mute tonight," Yorke apologises.
