They might give your their music for free, but tickets for the Head’s love-in at Malahide Castle in Dublin on June 7 next will set you back €70.70 (plus whatever Ticketmaster will charge).

Please note, Radiohead fans and right-on indie types, this is MORE than what Celine Dion is charging for her Croke Park show. It’s called “monetising your fanbase”, folks. You didn’t really expect Radiohead to play nice with their fans, did you? You did? Oh dear. But, as pointed out in this article, it’s the BAND who set the ticket price so you know who to blame.

Tickets go on sale on Friday. Sure, there’s the Christmas present sorted for your dopey, grumpy younger brother.
