UPDATE: Radiohead’s U.S publicist Steve Martin of Nasty Little Man has denied the rumor that Radiohead will be playing at 4PM today on Wall Street. “We can officially confirm this is NOT happening,” he wrote.
It’s just been confirmed that Radiohead will be playing a free concert today on Wall Street. But it’s not for some fat cat banker a-holes who shelled out dough for the publicly anti-corporate band. Rather, the Oxford 5-piece will perform as part of the Occupy Wall Street protest, which has been, well, occupying Wall Street in protest of the fat cat bankers.
The rumor was first leaked by Gawker, and then confirmed by the Occupy Wall Street website. It’s nice to imagine hordes of New Yorkers racing towards lower Manhattan for a change.
Radiohead is planning a busy final week of September in New York City, including appearance on Saturday Night Live and The Colbert Report, along with two intimate concerts taking place at Roseland Ballroom.
