Everything was done in seconds
But as expected, everything was sold in minutes or even seconds on the internet, where at 10 h 32, the online ticket agency Fnac showed us we were 14,350 th visitor to connect to this popular concert.
Hence the joy expressed very fast on social networks by fans who managed to win a place for the ancient theatre, to watch the British Band, and the disappointment of thousands of others having to be content with just humming one of the songs of the legendary group as they will not have the pleasure of discovering Radiohead on the stage at Fourvière this year.
