 Radiohead fans have spoken out about the 'ticket scalping' controversy surrounding the band's current tour.

The group, who released latest album 'The King Of Limbs' last year, announced their first Australian tour in eight years earlier this week,

Australian fans were unable to purchase tickets due to 'scalpers' buying them first and selling them on for vastly inflated prices.

Triple J radio presenter Tom Tilley told The ABC: "Pre-sale tickets went on sale on Tuesday morning. They were snapped up straight away... already that day, people were scalping tickets for $400 and $500 each, when the original ticket price was $130.

"Pretty quickly, people [got] really angry. The excitement they had about the tour turned to rage."

Meanwhile, Radiohead have announced ticket details about their forthcoming UK tour.

The band are set to tour the UK later this year to promote latest album 'The King Of Limbs'.

Although no dates have been released, Radiohead have confirmed that that they are joining AIF’s Ticket Trust ethical exchange for their UK tour. All tickets sold via their w.a.s.t.e. fan club will be exchangeable at face value, via The Ticket Trust.

The move is a bid to enable more Radiohead fans to see the band rather than pay for at inflated prices from the secondary ticket sites.
