R.E.M Heading to Prague Again

R.E.M probably like Prague, as this won’t be the first concert; they started to going to Prague since the 90’s. The last concert in Sazka Arena in 2005 attracted 15 000 fans.

R.E.M. is an American rock band formed in 1980 by Michael Stipe (lead vocals), Peter Buck (guitar), Mike Mills (bass guitar), and Bill Berry (drums and percussion). R.E.M. was one of the first popular alternative rock bands, and gained early attention due to Buck’s ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe’s unclear vocals.

rem Following years of underground success, R.E.M. entered the mainstream in 1987 with the hit song “The One I Love”. The group signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1988, and began to espouse political and environmental concerns while playing large arenas worldwide.

By the early 1990s, when alternative rock began to experience broad mainstream success, R.E.M. was viewed as a pioneer of the genre and released its two most commercially successful albums, Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People (1992), which veered from the band’s established sound.

In 2007, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
