R.E.M. News Week Continues As Major North American Tour Set

Three stories in three days – you’d think we were sponsored by R.E.M.. That’s not the case, but when heavies such as the Athens act announce Vote For Change dates, thirteenth album plans, and then plans for a proper tour, all the in same week, it’s just got to be covered. After those five VFC dates, in Philly, Cleveland, Ann Arbor, St. Paul and Orlando, the new dates will kick off, starting with a Greek Theatre date in LA on October 13. Major markets are on the agenda, with locales like Chicago, Toronto, and Seattle actually getting back-to-back shows, before the fall jaunt ends in Denver on November 27.
