Radiohead Cancels That Secret Show You Never Heard About

By John Ochoa

How many of you guys are going to the surprise Radiohead show tonight!? Oh wait, never mind. It was canceled earlier this week, just in time for you not to hear about it.

On Tuesday, Radiohead was set to announce tonight’s secret show at the Chicago Theater, but Thom Yorke apparently got sick and the gig was axed. The band decided instead to save its energy for Friday’s headlining slot at Lollapalooza.

The Thursday show, which was being organized by the band itself and not Lollapalooza promoters C3 Presents, would have been the official launch of Radiohead’s North American tour with all the show’s proceeds going to charity.

Sucks for die-hard Radiohead fans who can’t wait an extra day, but I’m sure their set will kick ass on Friday.

Stay tuned this weekend as MTV News gives you complete coverage of this year’s Lollapalooza, with news and interviews from all your favorite bands. And if you’re going to the show, help us cover it by uploading your photos and stories to YouRHere.
