Radiohead have announced that they will play a free London gig tonight (Jan 16) at Rough Trade East on Brick Lane.

The band will perform a short set of songs from “In Rainbows”, which recently charted at Number One in the UK and US after its physical release.

The show, where admittance is on a first come first served basis, will begin at 8pm, an hour after the doors of the store are opened.

Each person queuing will receive a number, meaning that those waiting can leave to get refreshments and use the store’s toilets.

Posting on the band’s site, Jonny Greenwood wrote: “For those who can’t get in – and it’s pretty small in there – we’ll have some screens and speakers outside, if we’re allowed. I think we are. And we’ll also webcast it.”
