[ # ] R.E.M.’s first public performance since 2007
June 14th, 2024 under Michael Stipe

R.E.M. was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame yesterday, and all four founding members were there to accept the honor.

If you are going to have Michael Stipe, Mike Mills, Bill Berry, and Peter Buck in the room together, then we better hear them perform. And that is what they did. The band, who disbanded in 2011, sang their hit Losing My Religion.

It was the first time they publically played together since 2007. That reunion performance with Berry was for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

We are running out of inductions to trick them into performing, so we are going to need a tactic to get them to perform more often, even though they told CBS Mornings that those days are over.

I don’t know why they are. Stipe’s voice is still as haunting as ever,` and the band still sounds great. So why not hit the road to delight us? I bet it would do the same for them.

And as a side note, am I the only one who wishes they had done a different song? Losing My Religion is one of my least favorite songs from them, and it is all about me wanting to hear them sing Stand.
