Anu is short for Anuran which means frog in Latin. It's a nickname--one of many--and many friends call me that, so it' more than just a screen name and not quite a real name. (pronounced Ah-new)
Cool! Haha I guess the combination of an avatar that looked like Bono dressed up like an Indian god and your name Anu (which is actually an Indian name too) made me wonder if you're Indian. I guess not.

$25 was for both tickets together, but it's still outrageous.

I hope you didn't have lawn tickets when they were touring for Around the Sun. It would have been so easy to just lean back...and fall asleep.

At least the Reveal tour only had one crappy album's worth of songs on display.

There's no way this is going to top seeing the fan club-only show at a smaller theatre in Los Angeles for In Time, or two Monster shows back to back outside of Chicago, one of them from like 15th row, where they were testing material for Hi-Fi, but whatever. I'm excited to see some old nuggets I haven't seen before.

Right: "Anu" has a bazillion or more meanings, many of them mythopoetic!

My wife used to be a Hindu and has traveled to India, but she's of European descent and was born in Edmonton, Alberta.

Back on topic: I actually think this would be a fun lawn show if people dance. Do people still dance at REM shows?

Today's on sale date for most of the US tour is also the 28th anniversary of the band's first ever gig.

Those shows sound extremely badass.

I had orchestra seats for the Around the Sun tour. "Get Up" and "Maps and Legends" fucking tore that place up. God damn what a good show that was, regardless of the weak ATS material.

Hopefully what this show lacks in proximity, it will make up for in rocking-my-balls-off-ness.

I'm really tempted here. I've only been to one show at the Mann Center, and it was Rufus Wainwright and awesome. I believe this show is either in the middle of exams or my wedding, so it's not a plausible thing, really.

Yep they do. I saw them on the ATS show and even here, our boring town in Australia, in a vast concrete arena, everyone got up for the first song, and remained standing!!! Shocking, I know

And that was 3 years ago, when they celebrated their 25th anniversary in one of our pubs, where I often drink, but where I wasn't that particular night

Sing for the Submarine is the one song I can't get into yet. It seems misplaced to me.

The Buck guitar on Living Well, however

Gotta say Hollow Man is the current fav for me. Catchiest thing they've written since, What's The Frequency Kenneth for my money...

only got to see them once (the tour that supported their best of Warner) as they cancelled Monster tour over here twice and they didn't bother showing up during their other tours

REM rules
The Monster tour was the first concert ticket I ever bought. The show was cancelled though because a tornado ripped a hole in the roof of the Tallahassee civic center a few days before the show and they didn't reschedule.

With the refunded money I bought F.S.U.opology instead. Good times.

Are you talking about a board game?

It's sad to think that concert tickets used to be that cheap.
