Radiohead charging £65 for tickets - not cool.
Thom feeling our pain…all the way to the bank.
OK so they’re one of the biggest bands in the world - they don’t play very often - and they’re very good live. But £65 EACH? REALLY?
To me that’s taking the piss a little bit. 5 years ago at victoria park, the tickets were around £45. They had just released a huge album,for free.So maybe I’ll pay a little on top to see them in return…and it was great.
But when they’ve just released what can only be called the mediochreKing of Limbs, I don’t really fancy paying that kind of money.
Problem is, plenty of people will, so it’s kind of a no-brainer for Radiohead to charge this amount. Plus if they would charge 30, the touts would take over and the natural supply and demand would end up with them making the money, not Radiohead, who might at least give it to charity or something.
By the way, you could go to Bilbao BBK, pay 20 quid more, and see LOADS MORE BANDS. Just sayin’
