Pete Yorn To Open For R.E.M. Next Month

Beginning October 1, in Philadelphia, PA, Pete Yorn will be opening for rock legends R.E.M. He'll be playing six dates in total with R.E.M. as they tour the nation in support of their forthcoming greatest hits package, R.E.M. In Time. Following his stint with Stipe and company, Yorn will continue to bring his boyish good looks and sensitive rock music to the masses with a headlining tour of his own. These dates will take him through the Midwest and Southeast before wrapping on October 28 in Syracuse, NY, just in time for Halloween in NYC.
