notes: This show was recorded for the German TV show ‘Rockpalast’ for WDR and it’s well worth finding a copy of it to see Stipe’s blonde hair, some great cover songs and the hilarious moment when Stipe goes out into the crowd during ‘We Walk’ and pats a big bearded guy on the head.

Notes from Mat: Awhile back somebody gave me a bunch of old REM shows. Unfortunately they mostly didn’t include any text files or other information other than show dates. Also they tend to be low bit rates. I’m not 100% positive I have the correct date on this one as all info I found online lists a bunch of songs that aren’t included in my download. However I am definitely in the camp of any REM is good REM so I’m happy to share.

  1. I love these REM shows. This was the first tour I saw them. I felt like I caught them on the way up. We got to the show 30 min. before it started and got 11th row on the floor. I lost interest after Life’s Rich Pageant.
