So, as we expected, the story about Radiohead performing in Las Vegas on March 1 is untrue. W.A.S.T.E. made a statement this morning concerning the “bogus” show.
It has come to w.a.s.t.e’s attention that tickets for a bogus show on the 1st March 2006 in Las Vegas have been sold over the weekend by Ticketmaster.
There is no such show and we are currently investigating why this has happened. We would recommend that those who have purchased these tickets go back to the seller to organise refunds.
Unfortunately, there have been fans that bought tickets after Ticketmaster telling them that Radiohead were indeed playing Bally’s on March 1. The Bally’s box office had no clue about the show and directed all questions to TM. We are now hearing from some fans that Ticketmaster is REFUSING refunds to this bogus show. Though the concert was advertised to be a Radiohead show on Ticketmaster’s website, it is really for the Jubilee dinner show which, according to TM, is now sold out (probably because everyone was thinking it was Radiohead) and they refuse to do refunds on sold out shows.
We seriously hope that we are misinformed and that Ticketmaster will do the right thing and refund tickets.
UPDATE: This was sent to us by Rooch20: “I just spoke to Ticketmaster and they are investigating this. Everyone will get their money back. They just need to get to the bottom of this and then will contact the people who bought tickets….like me!”
