Radiohead deny reports of surprise show at Wall Street protest today

Band were rumoured to be performing in the city's Zuccotti Park this evening

Radiohead have said that rumours that they are set to play a last minute show in New York this afternoon (September 30) as part of the ‘Occupy Wall Street Protest’ are not true.

The band, who played their first formally announced live show on Wednesday (September 28) at the city’s Roseland Ballroom, were strongly rumoured to be performing for the Occupy Wall Street protesters who are currently assembled in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, but an official spokesman has said this will not happen.

The band, who are well known for their support for left-wing causes and for the anti-globalization movement, were said to playing at 4pm local time, which is 9pm UK time, but this will now not happen.

The Oxford band have so far only played two live shows in support of their new album ‘The Kings Of Limbs’, the show earlier this week and earlier this year with a secret show at Glastonbury.

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke confirmed recently that the band would be touring in 2012, saying: “The idea is to go out and play next year on and off during the year.”
