Last night, Radiohead kicked off its U.S. concert tour with one of two performances at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In attendance was one anonymous man whose friend bailed on him at the last minute, leaving him with an extra ticket. Not wanting the ticket to go to waste, he did what any normal person would do: He posted an ad on Craigslist.
In the ad, the man explained that the ticket itself would cost $100. Okay. It was a fair-enough price considering tickets sold out within minutes of going on sale back in March. (Damn you, bots!) But there was also a catch: If you wanted the ticket, you also had to be willing to send a “booty photo” with “something that reads RADIOHEAD above it (or on the tush itself).”
The ad is currently still live on Craigslist, so it’s unclear if anybody actually exchanged a crisp Benjamin Franklin and an image of a toned rear for the ticket in the end. (Or if there ever was a Radiohead ticket to be purchased at all and this wasn’t just some elaborate ruse using Thom Yorke’s name in the pursuit of lewd pics.) If you did buy this ticket, please feel free to drop Select All a line and tell us all about it. (Though we’ll pass on the picture of your ass, thank you very much.)
