Radiohead Downunder

Radiohead returns downunder after eight years with five arena shows Nov. 9-17 through Chugg Entertainment.

Rumours were the band would headline July’s Splendour In The Grass festival.

“In this era of social media with nothing remaining secret for long,” Chugg said, “Radiohead, however, manage to defy this with their celebrated return being one of the biggest and best kept secrets this year.”

Presale tickets on the band’s website were snapped up in 45 minutes.

Within an hour, the A$135 tickets were being offered online for $425.

Radiohead will do a show in New Zealand before Australia, at Auckland’s Vector Arena Nov. 6. It is Radiohead’s first NZ visit since 1998.
