This week’s “find of the week” is from the early ’90s: a ticket to the National Stadium in Dublin for a preview of the band’s “new album” from 1992 … not a concert but rather a listening party of sorts put together by our friends at Warner Music Ireland the last week in September. Of course that album was “Automatic For The People,” released a few days later on October 5th, 1992.Thanks to Dubliner Rob Dizzle who dug this memento up and sent along to HQ. Here’s a track from that monumental album: New Orleans Instrumental No. 1 http://bit.ly/1yfzHH7
Thanks to good friend Klaus Hoffmann for sending us this laminate from November 6, 1998, for the R.E.M. Fan-Club show at Vienna’s Orpheum. The pass granted fans entry to the venue for the band’s promotional show in support of UP.
