Next month, Radiohead are going on a North American tour. On the calendar are shows in Canada, Ohio, Boston and Philadelphia, as well as a three-night residency at the mother of all residency-friendly venues, Madison Square Garden in New York City. The band is partnering with actor Edward Norton (Fight Club, so many Wes Anderson movies) for a sweepstakes offering a chance to see, and meet, the lot of them at the Madison Square Garden show on July 10. One entry is $10, and the contest is a fundraising effort for the American Civil Liberties Union.
The winner will receive two VIP tickets to the show, a backstage meet-and-greet with the band, Edward Norton and their friends, two nights at the Standard hotel in Manhattan and $1,000 for when you get hungry. You can enter with a $10 donation to the ACLU by way of Crowdrise. Norton and the band first held a contest of this nature in 2016, the same year Radiohead put out their most recent album, A Moon Shaped Pool.
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke recently debuted a new song, “The Axe,” live during a show in Italy while on his solo European tour. Watch that go down here. His most recent solo work was 2014’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, but rumors have been swirling that more solo material is on its way. Find all of Radiohead’s tour dates here.
For more information about the ACLU and their social efforts, visit the organization’s website. Again, you can enter Radiohead and Norton’s sweepstakes by donating via Crowdrise.
Since the likelihood of winning a high-volume contest is slim, and since it’s even unlikelier that you’re already planning to see Radiohead during their brief tour, below you can listen to recordings from a Radiohead concert circa 1995 via the Paste vault.
