Tickets for the band’s London gigs are now going for £1,000 on secondary ticket sites.
Thom Yorke has said he’s “fucked off” after thousands of Radiohead fans were left struggling to buy tickets for the band’s Roundhouse shows this morning (March 18).
There were 9,900 tickets available across the band’s three-night residency at the London venue from May 26-28, but many were left empty-handed after waiting in a queue on the band’s website.

“I’m as fucked off as you are, and am only human,” Yorke wrote on Twitter. It’s not clear exactly what he’s referring to – there have been complaints from fans online about both missing out on tickets and the £65 cost of tickets – but there are already tickets being resold on Stubhub for £1,000.

Radiohead your £65 Roundhouse cost is balls. Underworld are there for £35. James Morrison £29. Policia £18. I'm not funding your LED screens

As well as three nights at the Roundhouse, Radiohead are touring the world this summer with dates across Europe and the USA. The band are widely expected to be releasing their next studio album this year.
