Radiohead books New York City gigs, TV appearances
U.K. indie-rock veterans Radiohead are set to play a two-night stand at New York City's Roseland Ballroom Sept. 28-29, and will make some appearances on U.S. television while they're in the city.
Tickets for the Roseland Ballroom gigs go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 26 at Ticketmaster.com. Due to the small venue -- which holds about 3,200 standing-room fans -- some anti-scalping measures are in place for the show. There will be a two-ticket limit per household; all tickets must be picked up at the venue's will call the evening of the event beginning at 6:30 p.m.; and ticket-holders must enter the venue immediately after picking up their tickets.
Radiohead is also scheduled to be the musical guests on the Sept. 24 season premiere of "Saturday Night Live" on NBC-TV, and will appear a one-hour episode of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" to air Sept. 26, featuring multiple songs and interview segments, according to a press release.
"I look forward to meeting the Radioheads and leveraging their anti-corporate indie cred to raise brand awareness for my sponsors," "Colbert Report" host Stephen Colbert said in a statement.
