Radiohead will perform another free concert on April 1st, this time within the more spacious confines of London's BBC Radio Theatre. Unlike the band's last first-come/first-served show in January — when thousands of fans mobbed the streets trying to get wristbands that would grant them access to a venue that was ultimately deemed too tiny by police, forcing it to a larger location — the BBC will give out tickets either by applying by phone or winning them over the airwaves. "You'd be a fool to miss the concert," said Radio 2 head of music Jeff Smith, making reference to the concert's scheduling on April Fools Day. The gig will serve as a warm-up for Radiohead before they begin the first leg of their U.S. tour in May.
