R.E.M. called it quits today, much to the chagrin of the Auburn alums who camped out at Beard-Eaves for two weeks that one time (here’s the setlist), we’re sure….

Yeah, R.E.M. got a little b&w picture of Peter Holsapple (of opening act The dBs), while Whitney Houston got two color pages in that Glom. That’s what music was like in the ’80s, kids. That R.E.M. show was good.
Dave Metcalf says
I still have a Poster I took while camping out for the show…
I experienced that R.E.M. tour at Cameron Indoor Stadium in October 1987: a life-changing event. It was still the 80’s, but the 90’s were coming on strong.
My big brother was a Freshman that year and it was the first I’d heard of REM. What a time.
I was there with room mate in tow…my first REM show…
Jason Sharp says
I’ve got a tape of R.E.M in Auburn. My oldest brother Pudd recorded it in 1987.
