The One I Love - I'm going to see REM!

YEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

This is indeed my finest hour (currently also listening to REM - Finest Worksong, from Document). While browsing a Dutch newsgroup on Google I saw a posting about REM coming to the Netherlands! They haven't played the Netherlands for 14 years. June 1989 they were the closing act on the Pinkpop festival and that was the last the Netherlands saw of REM. They did plan some dates on their Monster tour, but first Bill Berry suffered an aneurysm and when they continued the tour Michael Stipe got a hernia. They didn't play here during the Up tour and for a long time it seemed the closest we got to see REM was on the Werchter festival in Belgium. But now I saw that post that they're playing the Netherlands again!
Not only that, but they are playing 2 dates. One is in the Heineken Music Hall, with a capacity of about 5,000 persons. The second date is even more special, as it is in the Tivoli club (which holds about 1,000 persons). And the sales started today!
With today being a national holiday (Queen's Day) I suspect not many persons know that the sales started. So at 21:30 I was still able to buy 2 tickets for Tivoli! I'm going to see REM in a small club!!!

SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!

C ya!

Marty

P.S. That's going to be an eventful period. 21 June REM in Tivoli and 1 July Coldplay in Goffert Park, Nijmegen (still have to buy tickets for that last one though...)

I'm not sure, but I think Marty's excited!

I hope I can catch them on this tour, too. I saw them a number of times back in the 80s--most memorably at Madison Square Garden in the 8th row center. I remember my seat distinctly because for about 4 songs we were sitting in 8th row in a further section back and were all bummed out because we thought we had really good seats. Which we did, once we realized our mistake. I remember vividly how excited I was when we ran to our correct 8th row seats and everyone was standing ON the seats and suddenly I felt like Michael Stipe was in my face. It was a good time

And I've been going through all the R.E.M. records ever since martha's shopping spree reignited the R.E.M. spark.

Salome, buy the tickets then!

Search on Ticketservice for R.E.M. (so with the dots) and you might find tickets.

Good luck!

Marty

(Edited: I see Tivoli is already sold out, but there are still tickets for the HMH. I haven't bought those yet, maybe tomorrow. Haven't made up my mind about that show, maybe 1 REM gig is enough for me...)

I have just been reading an old Q magazine with Michael Stipe as the featured artist..fascinating.

I have no opening act, but with a 1,000 persons (max) I don't think we need one. BTW, I thought about it, but I have decided that one REM concert is enough for me. Instead, I'm trying to go to the Coldplay concert on 1 July. I mean, Bruce Springsteen and REM and Coldplay and Rolling Stones, what a summer bill!

C ya!

Marty (who thinks that REM cannot top the Tivoli concert the next day, sorry!)
