So Radiohead are going on tour, which has me incredibly excited. What really worries me though, is the mental image of myself anxiously refreshing a ticketmaster  page trying to get tickets, whilst somewhere in London an entire office of Viagogo staff armed with a book of credit cards each are doing the same.

To calm the nerves of fans, a spokesperson for Radiohead has said: “In an attempt to prevent secondary ticketing for Radiohead shows the group has put a number of measures in place for ticket buyers. These include implementing a paperless ticketing system, limiting the number of tickets per transaction, disallowing name changes after purchase, and requiring photo ID to gain entry to the shows. For more detailed information on these ticket restrictions go to Radiohead.com/tourdates

The UK dates appear to be one show in Manchester, and a couple at the O2, although we can always pray to the gods of rock for some more.
