Radiohead, in case you didn’t know, are playing a very sold out show in the 3Arena on Tuesday. Tickets sold out in just under 10 minutes and they haven’t played Ireland since 2008 on their In Rainbows tour, so Irish fans are frothing at the bit for a bitta Radiohead.
They released A Moon Shaped Pool, their ninth studio album, last March and since then they’ve covered most of the festival circuit and are making a strong effort to mix in as much of the new music with the crowd favourites.
It’s 20 years since the release of OK Computer so considering the generous set lists from previous tour dates with two encores, maybe they’re tipping on the nostalgic side of things by giving fans plenty to savour.
Are tickets still available? Absolutely not. As The Irish Times reported in November when the tickets went on sale, Radiohead took a strong anti-tout stance with the Dublin show, with the name of the purchaser on each ticket, and photo ID will be checked on the door to make sure it matches the name on the ticket.
What time does everything kick off? Doors are at 6.30pm and support comes from Johnny Greenwood’s side project Junun with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur and the Indian ensemble the Rajasthan Express. They will kick things off at 7.20pm. Radiohead are expected onstage at 8.30pm.
How do I get there? While there is parking available in the Point Village, gig goers are encouraged to leave their cars at home and take the Luas, the 151 bus that operates every 10 minutes during rush hour or to walk.
What about security? Bags will be checked upon entry and anything that may be deemed as a weapon – like bottles, cans, selfie sticks, large umbrellas, iPads/tablets, video cameras, professional cameras (lens 35mm or more), audio recording devices, Go-Pro, large posters (A3+), large flags on poles, belt chains, laser pointers – are prohibited.
