FANS LEFT HIGH AND DRY

Hundreds of fans leave the Roseland Ballroom box office tearful and ticketless...

Tickets for Radiohead‘s show in NEW YORK have sold out within minutes, and initial reports from the ROSELAND BALLROOM suggest hundreds of fans left the venue emotional and ticketless after failing to secure passes for the oversubscribed event.

Tickets for the gig tomorrow evening (October 11) went on sale at the Roseland Ballroom Box Office and Ticketmaster outlets from 9am (ET) this morning (October 10). Hundreds of fans are reported to have assembled outside the Roseland Ballroom, waiting for the chance to buy tickets.

According to reports e-mailed to nme.com, fans were handed a lottery ticket in the queue, and people were drawn out at random. Because tickets were heavily oversubscribed, many fans were left empty-handed.

One fan who contacted nme.com claims people who arrived too late to receive lottery tickets were asked to leave by police.

In addition, Radiohead have confirmed shows at the Sears Theatre in Toronto, Canada on October 17, and a show at the Los Angeles Greek Theatre on October 20. The LA gig will be webcast via the US website www.hollywoodandvine.com.
