R.E.M. Perform Live For The First Time In Fifteen Years

R.E.M. Perform Live For The First Time In Fifteen Years

R.E.M. played "Losing My Religion" at the Songwriters Hall of Fame gala in New York on Thursday (June 13), performing live for the first time in more than 15 years.

In a recent interview with CBS This Morning, R.E.M. had said it would take a comet for the Georgia foursome - Michael Stipe, Mike Mills, Bill Berry and Peter Buck - to reunite.

Jason Isbell, who inducted R.E.M. into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, said, "The songs they created served a real purpose for kids like me growing up in a small southern town. Somebody out there reluctantly clawing their way into the mainstream who was just as strange and out of place and time as I was. R.E.M. was greater than the sum of its parts. R.E.M. moved like a single instrument."

Isbell also paid tribute to the band by covering "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)."

"Writing songs and having a catalog of work that we're all proud of that is out there for the rest of the world for all time is hands-down the most important aspect of what we did. Second to that is that we managed to do so all those decades and remain friends. And not just friends, dear friends," Stipe said.

"We are four people that very early on decided that we would own our own masters and we would split our royalties and songwriting credits equally," he continued. "All for one and one for all."

The band's last full concert was in November 2008 in Mexico City.

Taylor Swift has revealed when her extensive The Eras Tour will come to an end.

Time magazine's Person Of The Year announced in an emotional speech at the first concert of a three-night stint in Liverpool, England, last Thursday that her record-breaking tour will wind up in December.

"You know, this is actually the 100th show of the tour," Swift says in a video captured by a fan. "That blows my mind. That doesn't feel like a real statistic to me, because this has definitely been the most exhausting, all-encompassing, but most joyful, most rewarding, most wonderful thing that has ever happened in my life, this tour, these moments with you."

"You know, a lot of you were like, 'Well, how are you going to celebrate the 100th show?' And for me, the celebration of the 100th show means this is the very first time I've ever acknowledged to myself and admitted that this tour is going to end in December. Like, that's it," Swift told the audience at Anfield Stadium.

The Eras Tour kicked off at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on March 17, 2023.

More than 50 shows remain in her musical voyage with the final concert scheduled for December 8 at BC Arena in Vancouver, Canada.
