Rather than rehearsing in Athens, GA, R.E.M. invited an audience to 5 nights of live rehearsals midway through recording “Accelerate”. Here, Michael explains the concept of the live rehearsals.
These live rehearsals took place in 2007 at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland.
June marks the 10th anniversary. Revisit the 2-CD, 1-DVD “Live At The Olympia” album, available here: https://rem.lnk.to/OlympiaLive
