Radiohead tickets still on sale. Band blame Irish Times.

I’m glad I decided to bet on the greyhounds this weekend rather than on this gig selling out.

As various On The Record readers have been pointing out, there are still plenty of €70.70 tickets available for Radiohead’s big day out at Malahide Castle next summer.

Heeeere’s Caitriona:

Tickets are still available as of 14.10 – more than 5 hours after going on sale. given the crazed ticket-buying pace of other recent gigs, i think the rhetorical answer is no.

Eric points out some rather disturbing data mining:

When you’re about to finish buying these tickets, you’re told that you must consent to submit your personal information to Radiohead’s management in order to buy the tickets. And there’s a broken link to their privacy policy (that doesn’t even open in a new window).

Text from Ticketmaster: “By purchasing this ticket(s) you acc:ept Radiohead’s terms and conditions and consent that your data can be passed to www.radiohead.com and Radiohead’s artist management.

Thom Yorke is believed to be extremely upset about turn of events (he thought the fact that Malahide Castle has a fab model railway museum would swing a sell-out) and has written a letter to the editor. We will print that next week.

And here’s more proof that it really is all about the money.
