Radiohead have warned fans against the dangers of using secondary ticketing agencies.
The band recently announced a series of upcoming shows, with tickets going on sale on Friday (March 18th) morning.
The procedure was chaotic, with fans attempting to purchase tickets for the group's Roundhouse run in London enduring a complex queuing system.
Now Radiohead have tweeted to fans, advising them against using secondary ticketing sites. The statement reads:
