Radiohead hit back at claims UK tour is too expensive

Nearly £50 a ticket will ensure 'quality' say band's management

Radiohead’s management have hit back at suggestions their 2008 tour is too expensive.

Tickets for the band’s UK tour are around £42.50, more than some tickets for Prince’s residency at the O2 Arena in London last summer.

However one of the band’s managers Bryce Edge has claimed that the tickets are being sold at a fair price.

“We don’t want to go on tour and lose money,” he told The Times. “It is expensive to put on the quality show people expect. It is a comparable price to artists of a similar stature.”
