R.E.M. tour, new album....thoughts?

so, here we come upon another exciting r.e.m. year...the first new single, "leaving new york," will be released sept. 27/8 and the new album, "around the sun," will be released oct 4/5.

tour dates for the upcoming tour were announced less than a week ago, and the fanclub pre-sale has already passed.

me, i couldn't be more excited...rumors have the album "very political" and the first single is supposedly full of piano and very beautiful. as for the tour, i've got 11th row tickets for st. louis, and 6th row and 2nd row tickets for the two chicago shows. all three of these shows are in theaters. some of the dates are arenas, but many are mid-sized theaters with capacities around 4000. very intimate.

anyone else planning on trying to get tickets? any other fanclubbers holding tickets already? any thoughts on the new album?

I really want to see them in SLC. I've still never seen them in concert (one of my friend's brothers screwed us over during the Monster tour and gave the tickets he'd promised us to some other douchebags), and they're a band I've always told myself I'd like to make the goal to see.

I'm really not sure what to expect album-wise with it being self proclaimed 'very political' by the band. Hopefully that doesn't turn out as crappy as it sounds to me right now. I'm sure there will be some really good songs on it. I just really hope they can make another consistant/memorable CD, their last 2 have had a little to desire in that respect (solid albums for the most part, but quite forgettable).

i swear the reason they're playing there is the first line from the minus 5's "forgotten fridays"...

"we went on vacation to boston and thunder bay..."

i'm currently working out a plane ticket back from st. louis so i won't miss more than one day of work...i've been pretty damn excited ever since i ordered my tickets yesterday...or, since they posted the dates, really...

Part of the 'Perfect Square' dvd includes a mini documentary of REM in concert at Stirling Castle in Scotland. In one of the interviews Peter Buck explained that they chose to play at Stirling Castle partly because he grew up in a small town where you didn't have a hope of ever seeing a concert there because no one ever played there....Thunder Bay is that sort of town too.

I'm going to be at the St. Louis show - I'm excited about the venue as well - the Fox theater which is an old ornate oprea type hall - the tickets are only 65 for the best seats - go REM!

44 second clip of the new single, 'Leaving New York'.


Not an obvious first single at all. I'm not sure what this says about the album.
