Radiohead – West Coast U.S. Tour

14th Jan 12 (Sat) Leave a comment

Got my ticket for Radiohead at Key Arena at Seattle.  Anybody else have luck getting tickets?  If not, good luck on eBay, StubHub or other scalper sites.  The sale method took an even greater step to cut down on scalpers (no physical tickets, no print at home either).  Buyers have to show up with ID & credit card.  Might be interesting at the gates…

Outside of the two weekends at Coachella, here are their West Coast dates:

  • April 9 – Key Arena, Seattle, WA
  • April 11 – HP Pavilion, San Jose, CA
  • April 12 – Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara, CA

So… the first Faith No More reunion tour U.S. date is on the interweb news wire…

They will be playing Saturday, April 17, 2010 at the Coachella Festival in Indio, CA.  I won’t be able to go, but I hope they do a full U.S. tour this spring as well.
