I've just returned from the Atlanta show. I'm still totally buzzed. All I can say is wow! They're still one of the best live bands out there.
We had third row center seats! It was great to see the reaction of the people in the first few rows as they got to their seats. They were all truely excited to be so close. They were all real fans. No trendy types who are only there to be seen.
I've never had so many things thrown at me during a show! The drummer for the opening band (Now It's Overhead, they were really good) threw his drumsticks, which my friend deflected from hitting me in the face. Mills was throwing picks and Michael threw his hat and harmonica to the people behind and infront of us. After the show, the song lyrics were thrown at us by the crew. I now have Mr. Stipe's stage lyrics for Man on the Moon.

I can't remember the entire set list so I stole this from someone else (it may not be in order):

Get Up
Begin the Begin
These Days
Animal
Boy in the Well
Driver 8
High Speed Train
Drive
So Central Rain
Outsiders
I wanted to be wrong
Losing My Religion
Final Straw
Imitation of Life
Walk Unafraid
The One I love
Life and How to Live it

Encore:
NightSwimming ~with cello and oboe. The oboist was so nervous but she did a great job.
What's the Frequency Kenneth
Leaving New York
Permanent Vacation
I'm Gonna DJ
Man on the Moon

We also saw Bill Berry hanging out on Mills' side of the stage. We were hoping for a brief reunion of sorts, but it was not to be. He remained off to the side all evening, enjoying the GREAT show...

Driver 8 and So Central Rain!!! OMG I would love to see those songs in a set again. They are truely awesome in concert. Mike Mills is a sweet heart, I had met him in 1985. Due to prior commitments I will not see them this time around BILL BERRY! That would of been spectacular if he would of jumped on atage and jammed with them! Oh well, maybe soon. Thank you so much for sharing! ((((((S))))))) - got your email photos!!!! TY!!! Take Care~ANGIE~

Wow you're so lucky!!! Stipe's stage lyrics. I would frame them if I were you!!!

Yes we liked Now It's Overhead quite a bit too. Just my style . . . mellow and smoldering

REM started with Get Up! What a surprise! I really liked how they dusted off some of the older songs for these concerts. It made a nice contrast to the newer songs from Around the Sun. Yeah too bad Bill didn't join them

Driver 8, one of those songs that eternally sticks in my head.

And the train conductor says take a break driver 8
Driver 8 take a break
We've been on this shift too long. . .


Yes Mike is the sweetest! Some of the fans did get to meet the band afterwards but unfortunately we couldn't stay.

You're welcome A!

Wow. Hope you're right!

I'm still trying to score REM tickets for Denver next month. I was away when they went on sale and didn't hear about it.
It's a pretty small venue, too.

OMG, REM just scheduled a show in Albuquerque so I don't have to try to get Denver tickets and make the road trip. If I hadn't been checking daily for Denver tickets I would not have known about this. Tickets go on sale Saturday.

And it's a very small theatre!!

I must've been at the same show as Elvis, at the Taft Theater in Cincinnati. That was the most amazing show. It was right up there next to U2 in Columbus in 2001 as the best show I've ever seen. I really think REM's move into theatres is a very good thing. So what if they can't sell out arenas? The intimacy the other night in Cincinnati was amazing. I love the new songs too.

already happened, at the show in raleigh, nc on last year's tour. stipe mentioned a "mr. william berry" was in the audience. during the encore, the man himself got onstage, exchanged hugs, and added backing vocals during radio free europe. afterwards, he assumed his rightful place behind the drums. the crowd went abso-fucking-lutely insane, as the band tore into permanent vacation. he got a huge ovation, exchanged more hugs with the guys, then left the stage. the band finished up (of course) with it's the end of the world as we know it (and i feel fine). show over.

oh yes, i was there, and it was one of the greatest concert experiences in my life.

(yes, im gloating)
