Did you get your Radiohead tickets?

by Jonathan on September 26, 2011


Both shows at New York’s Roseland Ballroom went on sale this morning at 10 AM and we’ve been reading many reports that it was pretty much impossible for anyone to get tickets. Of course, it’s to be expected that Radiohead would sell out quickly, especially at a smaller venue like the Roseland. Currently, Ticketmaster says “Tickets Not Available” for both shows, but that doesn’t mean that additional tickets couldn’t become available later. We don’t know that for sure, though.

Also, please be very wary of getting tickets through scalpers. All tickets must be picked up at the Roseland will call office right before the shows and be under the name of the person who purchased them. If someone says they have tickets they can sell you, it’s most likely a scam.

Were you able to get tickets? Sound off in the comments.

  • Hey Jason,

    We reported about the NYC shows last week. Not sure what you are talking about.

    “purposely bad reporting on GP’s part for their own non-existent gain.”

    What does this even mean?

  • Test Specimen

    It is companies who bought every tickets and reselled them for like 1000$ on their website.

  • Wubiwy01

    Definitely not rigged.  Sometimes people just don’t get tickets.  Turns out, there are more than 1500 radiohead fans.

    thats a really good point. except that they posted notice of the shows on the 19th. close though.

    you must be the same dude from the w.a.s.t.e. thread – well, enjoy – it’s gonna be a great first show

  • jose

    there’s actually no seats, except for the tables in VIP – it’ll be standing room only

  • Radiovolta

    looking at the wiki for roseland it holds 3,500 people standing so I’d assume something around there.. but who knows how many were sold at the presale, companies, and whatnot

    This is whole thing is do dumb. The Roseland only can legally allow 3,000 people into the venue; I’m sure that at least 30,000 tried to get tickets this morning. Do the math. Some got lucky, some didn’t. End of story.

    At 10:05 am tix were selling on EBay for over$1000. So there you have it. Hopefully ill get to see them on tour next year.

    Eli Jace, you are a like-minded person who knows how to enjoy a show respectfully. I wish everyone were like you.

    Ticketmaster is so rigged, especially given the merger with LiveNation and the fact that ticketsnow.com is owned by Ticketmaster so there’s no incentive to attack scalping when it’s profiting from it. Scalpers use these things called bots that send out hundreds of signals to buy tickets at a time. It’s so corrupt and this is why monopoly is anti-capitalistic and unfair.

    Yet more evidence that Obama’s a corporate prick who should be sent to the Hague and never see his kids grow up.

    Hello my name is Pete I’m from Connecticut ….. I got two tickets from ticketmaster….. I honestly don’t know how I got so lucky .. But I have been following and loving this band since Pablo honey, and I’ve been falling in love deeper and deeper with their music ever since, they are seriously the best band in the world right now…..their music gets to parts of my soul that I never knew existed ….. I must have gotten the right operator at the right time …all I could do is be grateful to the holy universe for this opportunity …… I realize how huge this is …..I’m actually counting the minutes and so excited that I can’t sleep…..I just hope I don’t die before the show!!!!!!!! Peace and love everyone…..

    I also didn’t get the tickets.
    I wonder if you guys had seen the screen with tickets at 10am exactly?

    I was sharp at 10:00am on Ticketmaster, the link “Find Tickets” showed up at this time, but when I hit the link the next page showed “Tickets Not Available” (like it is right now). Around 10:10 I was able to choose the number of tickets but of course it was too late.

    Did it happen to you as well? Just wonder if there is any pattern with getting tickets on ticketmaster. Next time I will have to find 5 volunteers to log in with me.

    I was on right at 10:00 on two different computers. I was trying to score two tickets for Thursdays show for me and my boyfriend. After spending three minutes getting the “tickets are unavailable” screen,  I finally changed the quantity of the tickets to 1 and immediately got one. Despite having to go alone, I have never been so amped about any show in my entire life. I will fully appreciate this with everything that I have for all of you true radiohead fans.

    I just picked up three tickets to the Seattle show. They’re nosebleeds for sure, but after reading some of the comments below, I should consider myself very, very lucky I was able to get seats for me and my brothers. 

    And yes, Ticketmaster is very brutal.
