Radiohead is setting the record straight: They will not be performing at the Occupy Wall Street protest on Friday.

“We wish the best of luck to the protesters there, but contrary to earlier rumours, we will not be appearing today at #occupywallstreet,” they posted on the band’s Twitter page.

Occupy Wall Street, which had earlier confirmed the supposed show, 보성출장안마 also tweeted that the band would not be playing.

“Radiohead is not coming, we were hoaxed,” organizers wrote. “Please accept our apologies.”

Rumors swirled early Friday that the British band would will perform that afternoon at the protest’s headquarters in downtown New York City’s Zuccotti Park. A spokesman for the band said the reports were untrue.

“We can officially confirm this is NOT happening,” Steve Martin of Nasty Little Man, the firm that represents Radiohead, wrote in an email, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Nasty Little Man also updated its website to deny the reports: ” RADIOHEAD IS NOT PLAYING WALL STREET TODAY nor were they ever confirmed to do so.”

Radiohead has been in the NYC area this week playing two shows at Roseland Ballroom on Wednesday and Thursday. The group also performed Monday on “The Colbert Report.”

Occupy Wall Street has been occupying Zuccotti Park for the past two weeks, protesting against greed and corruption. They’ve received support from filmmaker Michael Moore and actress Susan Sarandon, both of whom have visited the protest.

He recalled the time royal advisers handed him his wedding guest list. “I was given this official list of 777 names – dignitaries, governors, all sorts of people — and not one person I knew,” he told Hardman. William said he looked at it in horror and said there was only one person he could go to: the boss. He told Hardman, “I rang her up the next day and said: ‘Do we need to be doing this?’ And she said, ‘No. Start with your friends first and then go from there.’ And she told me to bin the list. Not to say she doesn’t pull rank on the prince, too. As an officer in a multitude of service branches, he had a choice of which military uniform to wear at the wedding. Except he didn’t. The Queen insisted he wed in his Irish Guards uniform — one of her own regiments. “You don’t always get what you want, put it that way,” William told Hardman, “So you just do as you’re told!” William says he’s in no rush to think about his future and growing role within the Royal Family, let alone the idea that he will one day wear the crown. He says he tries desperately hard not to think about it as he’s flying his Royal Air Force helicopter, and he’s reportedly interested in extending his duty with the Royal Air Force after 2013, when he’s due to leave. CBS News contacted Buckingham Palace Monday about whether, in fact, William has told the Queen he wants to put off his full-time royal duties for now. A spokesman said that’s one option, but it’s a decision that will be made by William — and his grandmother — when the time comes.
