UPDATE: Radiohead forced to cancel Tokyo event

By Danielle Demetriou, in Tokyo 18 Feb 2011

"Radiohead brought foward the release of their new album after being forced to cancel an event in Tokyo because of police fears over crowd safety.

An enigmatic tweet posted by Radiohead which spread rapidly around the world has resulted in the cancellation of an event in Tokyo's due to the high volume of fans expected to attend.

The message, written in Japanese and posted on Twitter by the popular British band, read simply: “Hachiko Square Shibuya, 59 minutes 18 Friday.”


Somehow, I knew that this would happen. Well, to make up for all of this confusion, in addition to the moved-up release of their new album "The King of Limbs", Radiohead also posted a new music video called "Lotus Flower":


  1. Awesome! Thank you for posting this.

  2. You're welcome. I wonder what this will be.

  3. Well, according to the below NME article, the band will not be making a live appearance tomorrow in Tokyo:

    "...Hachiko Square boasts huge screens overlooking it, making some kind of broadcast there from the band a possibility."
