Yeah, well the REM show is in June, and Radiohead should be in August, so I should be able to manage getting to both. I hope so anyway.

Rumor has it (Thom himself confirmed it), Grizzly Bear are supporting the band throughout the tour. Not sure which leg, however.

Bought this last night and I hadn't downloaded anything, so it was all new. (Look, Peter Buck needs the dosh, he's got to pay alimony to 2 ex-wives now ). Anyway, it's made the drive to and from work great, I've been headbanging in the traffic jams to Living Well, Horse to Water and I'm Gonna DJ. And does anyone else reckon Mr Richards has a touch of Bob Mould/Sugar?

Great album

Stephen Colbert is so obviously a huge R.E.M. fan. It makes me love him even more, and I didn't think that was possible.

I hadn't downloaded anything before I had the album. I wasn't really convinced in the beginning, but it's steadily growing on me. Certainly not my favourite REM album, but easily among my top 5. I like most of the lyrics. I just cannot get used to 'I'm gonna DJ" in the end; on the Live in Dublin album, it was kind of funny, but on Accelerate it's pretty annoying.

Still a good album. Can't wait for the concert in July.

Because of timing and finances, I am resigned to the fact that I may not get to catch this first leg as much as I want to.

I cannot buy Chicago tickets this Saturday, and now, my only hope is for a miracle: Atlanta.

I really, really hope they follow up with a fall US tour.

A vicious rumor I just saw on the REM boards: U2 and REM co-headlining a stadium tour in summer 2009.

I just listened to my CD copy. I hadn't listened to the download for several days, so it was cool to listen again.

My top 3 from the album:

Accelerate
Houston
Mr. Richards

I won't hold my breath.

I was listening to a recording of the REM set at SXSW, and I have to say this to Michael Stipe:

Dude. Stop yelling instead of singing on the uptempo songs. It's seriously fucking annoying.

telling Stipe how to sing is like telling Van Gogh how to paint

with the obvious difference that Van Gogh is quite dead
