All the tickets have been sent out, and Chicago was the most
I will be at the Chicago show... front row center! Come by and say hello!
R.E.M. has added another tour date, mentioned in the recent Fan Club mailout.
The new show is...
September 8, 1999 at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY.
Patti Smith will open the show!
Reports that Fan Club Tickets are arriving are starting to come in. I (Zim)
do not have mine yet, so don't panic if you haven't seen yours either.
It has also been mentioned that they are arriving certified mail, so you
will either need to be there to sign for them, or you'll have to go pick
them up at your local post office.
This is what was written on a postcard from the fan club the week of Feb 1, 1999...
Best wishes from Peter, Mike, Michael,
R.E.M. will be touring Europe and the United States in Summer '99. TICKETS
will be available through the FAN CLUB for the first time ever. If you are
a member in good standing as of February 1, 1999, you will have an
opportunity to purchase two tickets to one show. Stay tuned for details
and the rest of us in Athens. It's going to be a fun year.
Best wishes from Peter, Mike, Michael,
This is ticket info for Fan Club Members Only. If you were not in the
fan club before February 8, 1999 (yes, they moved the date back a week) you
will need to learn when regular tickets are going on sale for the venue in your
area. This date will most likely be different in each town, so please do not ask
me (Zim) about it. Thanks!
If you are a member, you will be getting a ticket order form in the mail from the
fan club. Here are some major points made on that form:
