Radiohead plays Haiti benefit; raises $572,754

on January 25, 2010, 9:03am

“Radiohead For Haiti” was name of the concert on display at Hollywood’s Music Box Theater last night (Jan. 24). For Radiohead, this meant a special one-off concert, in between recording, where fortunate fans were greeted by a mix of old and new favorites — as well as the yet-to-be-released “Lotus Flower”. For Haiti, this meant the indie benefit concerts of all indie benefit concerts, where adoring Radiohead fans willingly threw out $475 a ticket (minimum), via online auction, for a chance to see this special one-off concert. In the end, the evening raised $572,754!, for Haiti relief efforts, which Thom Yorke announced during the second encore with a stunned “fuck me!,” URB and TFB report.
