Tickets for Radiohead's return to Dublin for their first concert since 2008 sold out within minutes of going on sale at 9:00 this morning.

Thousands of fans were left disappointed as some 10,000 tickets for their appearance at the 3arena on June 20th were snapped up.

Soon after the tickets were released they started to appear on the (often highly lucrative) resale market.

 

On viagogo.ie tickets, which were available this morning from €61.45, have fetched in excess of €400 - and are listed for up to €663.

According to the reading of page views on the site - there are plenty of music fans still chasing tickets with 2,244 punters listed as viewing the page at the time of writing.

However - purchasers of re-sold tickets may be disappointed (and out of pocket) as the band has introduced anti-tout measures which will see the names of ticket purchasers being printed on tickets - concertgoers will be asked to present ID to show that they are the rightful ticket holder.

The band is touring off the back of its critically acclaimed 9th studio album A Moon Shaped Pool.
