Radiohead Auctions Off Seat for Haiti in Small Theatre Show
On January 24 in Los Angeles, Radiohead will be playing a benefit gig to raise money for relief efforts to help the earthquake ravaged Haiti.
The show will take place at The Fonda’s Music Box Theatre, according to the website for the band. The capacity of The Fonda is around 1,300, which is a much smaller venue than the ones that typically the band plays in.
The band’s announcement states that tickets are going to be sold via an auction in order to raise the most amount of money possible.
The auction is currently underway and will run until Saturday January 23 at 11 a.m. PST. There is additional information available on the auction page for Ticketmaster.
The minimum bid, as of Thursday, was $225 for general admission tickets.
Ticketmaster states that all show proceeds, including fees for the tickets, will go to benefit the Oxfam America-Haiti Earthquake Response Fund, which is an international development and relief organization that seeks to create lasting solutions for injustice, hunger and poverty.
In terms of what could be expected from the show, Philip Selway, Radiohead’s drummer, wrote on their website that they were currently recording so the audience would be catching them on the fly, but if fans were up for that, they were too.
