dear radiohead,

you are one of the biggest bands of this era (and also my favorite band of all time). you have the power where you can do anything you want. why don't you figure out a way to go around ticketbastard to sell tickets to your FANS and not ticket brokers who are selling at prices like these:



the above aren't even the most astronomical but those are pretty average. i am unbearably sad that you will be playing in my town and i (likely) will not be able to go.

indeed. :(
the only saving grace i might have of seeing them play is that whenever they come in town their lighting technician always comes in our store to get something fixed or pick something up and as a kind gesture he gives out tickets to radiohead shows. i've met him once before and i heard he was in the store the other day, so who knows...

OMG these are evil. As is Ticketmaster. For everyone (maybe me too) who laughed at Pearl Jam when they wanted to challenge that system... Now Tickemaster routinely adds $12+ to the ticketprice, as in my Sonic Youth tickets that started at $25...supposively if i went to a ticketmaster outlet it would be cheaper, but not for a presale, so not if I want a floor general admission and not a balcony seat...so sorry Leigh.

added, yes, try craigslist really. Belle and Sebby tickets were awful on eBay and I scored 1 for cost on Craigslist (Portland) and 1 for slightly too much on eBay (Vancouver) at the last minute.
