R.E.M. was one of the biggest, most recognizable bands in the world. R.E.M. by Stipe are an accomplished, professional and energetic tribute capturing the energy and magic of R.E.M. With a string of peerless albums R.E.M. moved forward from the 80s; one eye on the underground and one eye on the soaring chorus; it’s safe to say we will never see their like again.
The Brindley Theatre show is a one off. R.E.M. by Stipe will perform three sets. Two of those will be live show sets; the hits and the favourites. There is no adequate career-spanning retrospective for R.E.M. so one set will be a live rehearsal and the songs will be chosen by you; the ticket holders. Once you have purchased your ticket, you can place your song request direct with the band here: http://bit.ly/STIPEBRINDLEYREQUESTS The most requested songs will be performed on the night!
Stipe have played the best of the festivals and venues across the UK and Europe including the 100 Club, O2 venues, Isle of Wight Festival and have performed for R.E.M.’s own lead singer who said, “These guys are awesome”. The boys from Athens’ legacy is in good hands.
