Radiohead's unique worldwide event that took place at record stores around the globe on Friday faced tragedy in Istanbul, when the Velvet Indieground hosting the listening party came under attack. According to Turkish news outlet soL, 20 attackers stormed the event and were angry over the drinking of alcohol during Ramadan.

Radiohead has since spoken out about the attack in a statement: "“Our hearts go out to those attacked tonight at Velvet IndieGround in Istanbul. We hope that someday we will be able to look back on such acts of violent intolerance as things of the ancient past. For now, we can only offer our fans in Istanbul our love and support."
