Flooded by Fans, Radiohead Forced to Change Venue


More than the scheduled 200 people turned up at the small venue Radiohead planned to have their first show after releasing 'In Rainbows'.

Radiohead falsely predicted the demand of their first gig after releasing 'In Rainbows'. The band who announced a surprise free gig in a London shop was forced to move the tiny venue to a larger one after legions of fans turned up at the first scene.

The band promised free tickets to their show for the first 200 people turning up at Spitalfields's Rough Trade East Records in London on Wednesday, January 16. When more than the quota showed up and crowded the lane, police officers warned the band's camp to shut it down, but the band anticipated it by moving the show to nearby 93 Feet East venue.

"On the advice of the police and the local council, it was decided to change the venue to the larger one in the interests of public safety and due to the size of the crowd that turned up for the event. Rough Trade and the band apologise for any inconvenience caused," a statement on Radiohead's official site read.

Nme.com who did a live-blogging of the show reported that the band kicked off with '15 Step' and followed it with 'Bodysnatchers', 'Reckoner', 'House of Cards' and a couple of other songs which are taken from 'In Rainbows'. They also played some old materials like 'You and Whose Army?', 'The National Anthem', 'My Iron Lung' and 'The Bends'.
