Radiohead Fans Offered Make-Up Tickets—in New Jersey
Comments () | Published May 16, 2008

UPDATE: Check out this note from a commenter:

"Someone from Nissan returned my call and offered tickets to a show of my choice at Nissan or two lawn tickets (for my four seated initially purchased) for the NJ show. Upon explaining that I would not accept either option and wanted nothing less than a refund, I was asked for my email address and told that instructions for getting a full refund (including fees -- I specifically asked) would be mailed to me within 48 hours. Though I won’t celebrate until I see the money, I am pretty optimistic."


If you don't live under a rock, you've probably already heard about the disastrous situation that occurred during the Radiohead concert at Nissan Pavilion this past Sunday. Roads were flooded, some fans were denied entrance to the parking lots due to the flooding, and ended up circling for hours—and missed the entire show.

Fans have been using the internet to complain about the situation, and many have suggested demanding refunds from Nissan Pavilion.

We heard from a few readers today that, in attempt to placate people who were turned away from Nissan due to the flooding, that Nissan's offering fans free lawn tickets to an August Radiohead concert—in New Jersey. (Calls to Nissan to confirm this were not returned.) Needless to say, those folks weren't thrilled with the offer.

What about you? Were you denied entrance to Nissan Pavilion last Sunday? Has Nissan contacted you? We want to hear your story. Leave it in the comments. And we'll keep you updated on the New Jersey situation.
