    Not a REM fan. But I have seen them headline festivals a few times and they do bring it for the masses and I enjoyed it. I think they deserve to headline a Coachella, so make it sooner rather than later.

    So yeah, approved for Coachella consumption.

    A huge bonus. This is a headliner that won't draw "that" crowd that we've heard so much about post-Coachella.

    I said some things here that might spark an argument. I edited it so I could keep it out of this thread. But yeah, sort of TCHY.

    I'm really surprised they've never been at Coachella. They would fit in perfectly, and they can't be that hard to book, can they? I'd love to see it.

    I saw REM in 1985 and they were really great.

    I saw REM in 2003 and they were pretty boring.

    But yeah they are an obvious fit for Coachella.

    I would love this, I have not had the chance to see them live yet. Then if they get Tori Amos maybe they will do something together since they are friends. Maybe the song they made together that was never released, lol wishful thinking.

    You know... I'm not the biggest R.E.M. fan, but I must commend the OP for his creativity. You're the first person to post a relevant headliner request that hasn't been regurgitated over and over again. I applaud you.

    R.E.M. would be a totally legit headliner at Coachella worthy of the Saturday closing spot.

    Really? I saw them at Sasquatch 08 and was extremely impressed. My fiancee, who actually didn't like REM at all at the tim and was only there because I wanted to see them, loved the performance.

    I was blown away by them in 2003. Amazing performance and stellar setlist.

    Setlist when I saw them...

    set: Begin The Begin / So Fast, So Numb / Imitation Of Life / Drive / Animal / Fall On Me / Bad Day / The One I Love / (Don't Go Back To) Rockville / The Great Beyond / Orange Crush / Daysleeper / Electrolite / Losing My Religion / Find The River / She Just Wants To Be / Walk Unafraid / Man On The Moon
    encore: Everybody Hurts / Finest Worksong / Nightswimming / Final Straw / It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
    Wow. All that was missing were At My Most Beautiful (which got played in SF and Vegas) and E-Bow the Letter (which was played in Vancouver with Thom Yorke).
    10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater (?), 10/18 Culture Collide, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale, 11/7 Warpaint @ Echoplex, 11/12 Blonde Redhead @ Fonda

    What the hell is wrong with you?? Their performance was stellar, and I was watching from way back on the lawn.

    I've kicked myself for not seeing R.E.M. the day before Radiohead in 2003, BUT I did have the privilege of witnessing Micheal Stipe sing the chorus of Karma Police during Radiohead's encore.

    lurv 'Nightswimming'. Something about this band...the americana and Stipe's unique perspectives. Fave song off the latest album is 'Houston'.

    APPROVED

    Paul made a big mistake when he had the chance to book REM (instead of Jack Johnson) in 2009.

    Let's hope REM is available for 2011. Their new album (post-Accelerate and Live at the Olympia Theatre) is due out the first quarter of 2011, so the timing would be perfect.

    Here's to hoping Coachella will announce R.E.M. as a headliner months before the official lineup is announced, just like Sasquatch announced Pavement in the Fall of 2009 as one of their headliners for 2010.

    If anyone is on eMusic, this is a good deal. Downloaded it a few months ago and it was like ten or so credits for thirty-nine tracks.
