R.E.M. TO TOUR NORTH AMERICA

Some great news today that R.E.M. will tour North America this May and June in support of Accelerate , their new record, set to be released on April 1st. R.E.M. have always been exciting in concert and I have been fortunate to see the band on every major tour since 1983. This time out the band will be joined on the tour by playlist stalwarts, Modest Mouse and The National in Canada and the United States. Early reviews of the new record have been very good, check out their website for a song preview Supernatural Superserious.

Thank you for alerting me to this touring trifecta of awesomeness. I just caught the National a few months ago and they were one of the best shows I've seen in a loooooog time.
