REM are playing tonight in London. You can listen online.
So they play the EXACT same setlist as SXSW, except adding Losing My Religion.

C'mon R.E.M.! switch things up a little bit. You only have 15 albums worth of back catalogue to choose from

At least U2 fans wait till the 3rd show to bitch about setlists. So REM have done 2 similar setlists and they weren't even back to back? Yeah they suck.

And the real tour hasn't even started yet, either. Can't really judge from two one-off performances...

That's also the impression I'm having.

Actually...

43:48 Murmur
38:47 Reckoning
39:40 Fables Of The Reconstruction
38:16 Lifes Rich Pageant
39:46 Document

34:30 Accelerate

I definitely overestimated the lengths of the others, but that's still a full four minutes shorter than any other album.

there's a good article on stipe in the new spin.. if it hasn't already been mentioned in this thread.. but probably has..

anyway.. it's interesting to read about how he felt about the last album.

He can't fucking believe that he wrote a song called 'electron blue' and he seriously considered suicide because of it.

COLBERT REPORT GUEST APPEARANCE NEXT WEEK!
The band may or may not get the chance to go mano-a-mano with Stephen Colbert, after all, it wouldn't be fair since they outnumber him 3 to 1, but R.E.M. will most certainly be on the CR next Wednesday, April 2nd, the day after the domestic release of ACCELERATE. The Colbert Report airs M-F, 11:30PM ET. Visit The Colbert Report for more information about the show.

Stipe also talks about the disappointment with Around the Sun in the Pitchfork interview.

http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/articl...-interview-rem

He does not mention the lame attempt to recreate the magic of Radio Song on The Outsiders, or the failure of The Final Straw to end the war in Iraq, however.
