I think we need some statistics on who cares. I'm thinking somewhere around 2-3%

Yeah, I'm with you. Who the fuck cares?


Mao- At that 2003 show at the Garden, all I can tell you is when I looked around the place, it "appeared" to be full. Maybe a lot of people received free tickets and they weren't counted.


I'll just reiterate that I was fortunate to see them live three times and they were awesome each time.

6/22/95- MSG
10/4/03- MSG
6/14/08- Jones Beach

I saw REM three times. I don't really remember what songs they played or if the shows were any good, but I'd LOVE to tell y'all what the attendance was and what the box office receipts were.

I got to see them once in 1995. Great show! Any fans on here see them in the 1980s?

There's no way it's that high.

Spot on. We saw Duran, Gabriel, Dep Mode and R.E.M. [03 + 08] there and well over 13k, the SECC in Glasgow holds 9-10k and looked like fucking nightclub compared to MSG.

I'm pretty sure I've walked into some sort of silly argument, and am better off not reading all 400 posts. Confirm or deny?

I was eating dinner in Westport, Ireland, and the radio station started playing a whole set of REM songs. "How nice," I thought. "isn't Irish radio grand?". Then I went back to my hotel and saw on TV that they had broken up.

Woe.

Many, many great memories of loving their music throughout the years. Did not get to see them until the Monster tour, saw them 5 times in total. Best show was in Chicago, 1999. Had amazing seats, shared with a dear friend who had loved them for as long. I had.

Thanks for the awesomeness, guys.

What was the point of the tour statistics? Just random "if anyone's randomly interested"?

Discounting the last five or so pages, I've had fun with this thread in spite of everything. But you're better off not reading all 400 posts because there are very few, if any circumstances in which sorting through 400 posts on an online forum would benefit your life in some way. 40, sure. Once it crosses into triple digits though, you can count on some moronic argument to have popped up along the way, perhaps several.

Nice to see you around, Cori. Hope you're having a blast, Ireland treated me very, very well.
