Thanks to Brendan and Karl from the excellent Analogue magazine for this out-take from an interview done today with Radiohead’s Phil Selway

Analogue: Tickets for your gig in Dublin in Malahide Castle went on sale this morning and are very expensive, it’s €70.70, and there’s been some discussion of how you can justify the fair way of releasing your album and then charge that much for a tour gig?

Phil: Right, and what’s been the general response on that?

Analogue: Well I mean it is the most expensive gig of the tour and there have been arguments that you’re pricing out some fans, people who may have bought the discbox, big fans or students, who don’t have that much money to come to a gig.

Phil: Right.

Analogue: Do you have any reaction to that?

Phil: Eh, well whenever we’ve looked at ticket prices and set them, we’ve wanted to make them as fair as possible so I would hope that we’ve pitched it right on this one, make it as fair as possible on the price. You know we’ve never really set out to max, as they say, our tour revenue so I think we’ve always put out reasonably priced tickets. That’s as much as I can say really.
