The definitive tribute to one of the biggest bands in rock music – R.E.M are back at The Bungalow tomorrow night. Stipe have performed the songs of R.E.M. to thousands of people worldwide. R.E.M. built a towering back catalogue that reached from the addictive highs of Shiny Happy People down to the reflective darkness of Everybody Hurts, covering all else in between.

Platinum Al had this high praise for Stipe. “Where this band succeeds is in the accuracy of the sound … the lead singer looks the part, his voice is a fairly uncanny likeness of Michael Stipe’s …the other musicians also create a brilliant rendition of the songs, fully convincing and delivered with confidence.” And finally – this is what the lead singer of R.E.M said about Stipe.

“These guys are awesome!!” – MICHAEL STIPE – R.E.M. You can get tickets on the door from 7pm.
