The Ultimate Queen Celebration
@MrRobin14669 no sorry – as far as I know this is the only footage of the gig that was ever broadcast
They only played for 20 minutes? 🙁
@MoonchildMindaugas2 no they played for around 90 minutes but this is all that was broadcast
@pmurf242 Oh, I knew something was rotten. Thanks for clarifying 🙂
Still can't believe I'll never see them live again. First saw them on the Green world tour in 89. Last saw them at Hyde Park. Best band ever. Full Stop.
Excellent, thanks for posting this gem!
que fantastica banda ..!
la mejor para mi !
una banda humilde y sin pretender
ser los mejores sin necesidad de pretenderse
en el mundo de la Merkanteria para ser mas que otros.
awesome..but really short version of drive.. no ollie ollie in come free…
ya i know – mtv edited it like this – they actually played the full version on the night
the encore was shown only??
this isnt the encore, its highlights from the full gig. The full setlist was:
set: Living Well Is The Best Revenge / These Days / What's The Frequency, Kenneth? / Begin The Begin / Man-Sized Wreath / Drive / Ignoreland / Hollow Man / Imitation Of Life / Electrolite / The One I Love / Losing My Religion / Fall On Me / Let Me In / Bad Day / Horse To Water / Orange Crush / I'm Gonna DJ
encore: Supernatural Superserious / It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) / Man On The Moon
Everytime l hear Drive l always think it was written tween 2000 and 2008. (BUSHwacked…Tie another one to the racks…) Un/Pre-timely l suppose.Peace
I Believe Stipe & Co. were writing about George H.W. Bush, who was president when "Automatic For the People's" songs were written, just before Clinton took office. "Ignoreland" (from AFTP) was written about the Iranian hostage situation in 1979 that led to a Reagan/Bush Sr. White House, and the Iran Contra (arms for hostages) scandal the administraion facilitated, then the subsequent pardoning of IC's key players during the elder Bush's presidency. Stipe is no friend of conservative governments
Cheers for that info.l must look into "lgnoreland." l usually do look into lyrics to understand song's meanings.l hate it when writers say "take what you want from lyrics" ( NAH.You meant something-so don't hide it,is my motto ) "lgnoreland" l've never really LISTENED to properly.Off to do so right now.Thanks again.Peace
awesome robot-dance for whats the frequency kenneth
Love you, Michael <3
Man on the Moon!!! R.E.M. is the BEST. Amazing songs!
I've been a fan of this extrodinary band form it's indie(I.R.S.) days. Those releases.."Life's Rich Pagent", "Fables of the Reconstruction" "Document" Reckoning" and "Murmer"..(not in that order) five of the most incredible albums ever recorded..Funny..Thing,this gig was recorded on July 10th, 1 day before my birthday(wish I was there) OUTSTANDING!!
This band still puts a smile on my face, and makes me a little sad too cause it reminds me of the "days gone by…." Ha! Good, bad, or ugly……they were Great, GREAT! Im still the same…haven't changed my name….. wow…
your every songs are very very beautiful,i like it all very much,
grande gruppo davvero mitici , li o visti a Milano nel 2010 da brividoooooooooooooooooo peccato si siano sciolti ma la loro musica non morira mai
rapid eye movement . . . Damm U Michael Stipe . . . Now I can't sleep. 😛
"What's The Frequency, Kenneth?"
"What's the frequency, Kenneth?" is your Benzedrine, uh-huhI was brain-dead, locked out, numb, not up to speedI thought I'd pegged you an idiot's dreamTunnel vision from the outsider's screenI never understood the frequency, uh-huhYou wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh
I'd studied your cartoons, radio, music, TV, movies, magazinesRichard said, "Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy"A smile like the cartoon, tooth for a toothYou said that irony was the shackles of youthYou wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huhI never understood the frequency, uh-huh
"What's the frequency, Kenneth?" is your Benzedrine, uh-huhButterfly decal, rear-view mirror, dogging the sceneYou smile like the cartoon, tooth for a toothYou said that irony was the shackles of youthYou wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huhI never understood the frequency, uh-huh
You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huhI couldn't understandYou said that irony was the shackles of youth, uh-huhI couldn't understandYou wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huhI couldn't understandI never understood, don't f*** with me, uh-huh

R.E.M por siempre, por siempre Amén!
Great!!!, the drummer is so so though..
it,s the end of the world as we know it.a masterpiece!!!!
They absolutely smashed end of the world as we know it.
non ascolto più questo tipo di rock , mi piace il rock AOR, ma i REM rimarranno nella storia.. grandi !
Your missed lads. Legends!!
Amazing! Thanks for sharing…
Miss this band so much! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Great quality vid. Thanks for posting this man:-)
Are they really censoring the word 'benzedrine'?? Disappointing.
Going to see Stipe the UK's best REM tribute band next week – can't wait. I was lucky to see REM live about 5 times.
God have musersey for all the men that fired in vet nom and the chemicals they where exposed to please don't forget them.
Call it "art" if you want, but the in and out of focus the entire 21:56 is very nerve racking ¯ಠ_ಠ/¯
I wonder why but Stipe is thoroughly out of tune throughout what's the frequency Kenneth…
This world needs R.E.M.
It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Excellent. Thanks for sharing.
Miss them. Lucky to have seen them twice! Best band ever for me!
What a gig this was . R.E.M. playing for last time in IRELAND . what A DAY. R.E.M. were the best that day.
No other band will ever reach this level of excellence in my lifetime. I don't think anyone even cares about making music this good at this point in history.
Fucking amazing this. Get back together, guys!
Two years away from a re-union. Mark my words. Tick tock tick tock
REM= Remember Every Moment!!! Loved REM.
Men of their word…….Reunion????? Not here….
thanks for sharing, real good.
Huh? Wha? Not oxygen?
What a gig! Thank you R.E.M. for Drive and this unforgettable night
Felt blessed to see them that day
Michael Stipe .2019
Bringing it to 11, 11 years ago. Them, Hendrix, Sex Pistols, Love&Rockets, Queen and Siouxsie & The Banshees were on my bedroom walls in high school and university. How about you?
Love the captions! Hilarious. Regret never seeing these guys. Listened to the hell out of them in high school and college and then when they hit it super big I sort of lost interest. Seemed like they were just played to death on radio and MTV. So I kept seeing the Dead and their remnants, and Phish and all the jam bands and missed out on every seeing these guys live. My loss for sure. They were truly a great band. Auto for the People still slays me to this day. Lyrics like the world has never seen. Thankful for Youtube 🙂
Ireland has the best REM concerts , tanks
he sang the sash my father wore , crowd loved it , and knew all the words , GLORIOUS TWELTH
4 ever and more…….
Comeback album & tour in Germany 2020, please.
Mike has to be the best backup singer ever!
The best. R.E.M.
