Beloved British band Radiohead is coming to Toronto this summer, but it seems like barely anybody in the city has managed to get a ticket.
ROLE CALL: Did a single human person get floor seats to Radiohead in Toronto?

Tickets for the ‘Creep’ band’s back to back shows on July 19 and 20 at the Air Canada Centre went up for sale at 10 a.m. this morning. Just minutes later, Ticketmaster was informing guests that they were all sold out.
Is everyone else trying to get Radiohead tickets in Toronto seeing this too? Seven minutes and counting: pic.twitter.com/wgoQdUyBUi

Many people were experiencing server crashes, with tickets in their shopping cart only to have Mastercard leave them hanging.
.@Ticketmaster broke my heart. After securing tickets to Radiohead in Toronto and about to check out, I got an error message telling me to phone customer service. When I phone customer service, I get a busy signal. These issues are unacceptable.

People were also furious to see that tickets sold during fan pre-sales were already being hawked on StubHub for ridiculously jacked up prices.

This is the first time the masterminds behind OK Computer will hit Toronto since 2012 – when one of their drum techs were killed during a stage collapse at Downsview Park – and people are super bummed to miss out on the performance.

Alas, it seems the bots have struck again.
