RADIOHEAD FIRST US CONCERT NFT AUCTION
Actual Performance Contract from June 22, 1993 Show
at Boston’s Venus de Milo rock club
Too Much Effing Perspective podcast host Alex Hofmann was Radiohead’s Pablo Honey & Creep-era US concert tour manager. It was his job to collect the money from each show. This performance contract even has Alex’s handwritten pencil scribbles from figuring out the ticket sales that night at Boston’s Venus de Milo rock club on June 22, 1993.
Fun information revealed by the contract includes how much the now-legendary band was guaranteed to be paid for the performance; the single-digit ticket price; and that two lucky, but unnamed, local bands got to open this memorable show.
The winning bidder will be invited to be interviewed by Alex and Allen for a future episode of Too Much Effing Perspective and offered the opportunity to attend a Zoom-like virtual recording session with an upcoming guest.
25% of the proceeds from the NFT auction will go to worthy music-related charities including Live Nation/Music Forward Foundation’s Crew Nation, which provides critical support to concert tour roadies whose livelihoods have been impacted by the pandemics.
The auction will open on Thursday, October 28 and end 7 days later on Thursday, November 4.
