R.E.M. to Tour with Modest Mouse, the National



Dang, dudes.

Nearest stop to St. Louis is Friday, June 6, in Chicago. Guess where you can stalk me that night?

This triple bill is a smart move on the band's part. They can't fill arenas in most markets in the U.S. anymore, but by bringing along two of the most popular rock acts as tour support, this tour is automatically one of the hottest tickets of the spring/early summer now.

R.E.M.'s new album, Accelerate, comes out April 1.
