Mike Mills - REM

They've sold millions of albums around the world and had so many hit songs it's hard to count them all but R.E.M have announced they're coming to Ipswich in July 2005 as part of their World tour.

It's going to be a fantastic night filled with songs like Everybody Hurts, Man on the Moon, Night Swimming, Shinny Happy People and many more classic tracks.

Make sure you don't miss out on this great chance to see a world famous band on your door-step and if the success of Sir Elton John's concert there is anything to go by, the atmosphere will be amazing.

yer that tom myhill was such an ignoramus but the concert ruled

It's over a year ago now. I still remember every second of this amazing concert. Idlewild and the Zutons were fantastic too. The speech at the beginning brought a tear to my eye. Everybody Hurts was brilliant. The highlight for me though was when I heard the first chords of Losing my Religion. The crowd rose to it's feet as one. Brilliant, Awesome, Fantastic, Stunning.

it was great amazing but this idiot tom myhillruined it being stupid

When i went to this brilliant concert they were my fav band! they now support that fact! me and my girlfriend went there together jessamy is kool

Heheh This gig was indeed awesomeand yes anna it IS rare we get these events. I reckon anna is very fit. definatly.

i went to ipswich and have seen rem twice now and excellent both times!! will goagain and again

Brilliant, brilliant! Wow, what a concert!

Tom Myhill
REM were absolutely amazing! Best gig I've ever been to.

I went to the concert last night, but when I bought the tickets I bought them because of the Zutons. I didn't really know many R.E.M. songs just the well-known ones. I was blown away by all of the bands but especially R.E.M. They were amazing. Today I now own their Best Of album so I can really get into them. I felt that the speech at the beginning about the bombs in London was appropriate and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up when they played Everybody Hurts. However, for me, the highlight of the show was the last half an hour, particularly when Stipe came out wearing an ITFC shirt!! Brilliant!

Nige Beedham
I went, simply brilliant, no more to say.

excellent gig! the only downside was micheal stipe wearing an ipswich shirt and chearing on the tractor boys!

I went to last night's concert and REM were a complete class act, with Michael Stipe even donning an Ipswich jersey during the encore. Amazing concert and the Zutons did a fab job as opening act.
