R.E.M., Rocket From The Crypt, Styles Of Beyond, Reverend Horton Heat, Biohazard...

R.E.M. have announced five summer shows in the U.K. In a tour that will include their first indoor shows in the U.K. in more than a decade (not counting private events), they'll play London's Earl's Court on June 22-23, the Nynex Arena in Manchester on July 17 and Stirling Castle in Scotland on July 19-20. Guitarist Peter Buck was quoted in a Warner Bros. press release as saying the band will play "some old stuff, some new stuff, maybe some new, new stuff." They'll be joined by Joey Waronker on drums and multi-instrumentalists Ken Stringfellow and Scott McCaughey.
