DETROIT (CBS Detroit) All the Radiohead fans who thought they were left out in the cold have something to warm their hearts: A new batch of tickets is available for Monday night’s show.

Tickets that cost $69.50 are now available at Ticketmaster for the previously sold-out show.

“The Radiohead tour has loaded in their amazing production and based on sightlines we are pleased to announce that a block of great lower bowl seats are now available for purchase for tonight’s concert,” the band said in a press release.

The alternative band is breaking their long streak of avoiding the Motor City with a 7:30 p.m. performance at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

It will be their first performance in the area in nearly 15 years.

The Detroit News reported Radiohead’s last Detroit concert was Aug. 15, 1997, at the Fillmore Detroit. The band continued to tour after that, hitting cities as close by as Cleveland and Chicago — but not Detroit.

Did we do something to offend? The band stayed mum. But some pundits said they couldn’t find a venue the right size to suit, that they like to play outdoors but found DTE Energy Music Theatre too sponsor-driven.

This time around, Radiohead is supporting the album “The King of Limbs.”
