Yep-looking for Athens ticket info
So, there’s also a Chronic Town anniversary show happening in Athens the night before?
yes at 40 Watt
I’m not seeing any shows listed on their website beyond November 23rd. What is your source for there being a Chronic Town show there in December?
## The Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson Announces Benefit Shows Marking 40th Anniversary Of R.E.M.’s ‘Chronic Town’
The Planned Parenthood benefit shows are set for December 14 and 15 in Athens and Atlanta, Georgia.
Thanks, that’s the first mention I’ve seen of the 40 Watt show. I imagine ticket info will be posted on their website in due time.
I just grabbed a ticket to the Atlanta show on December 15.
this is really cool. I bet Peter and/or Mike hits the stage too. Maybe even Michael…
Bill??? to see him play that beat on Wolves, Lower in person would be incredible.
That would be an interesting show(s). Fred Armisen rocks!
Yeah, I love Fred Armison. Nice to see him involved with something R.E.M.
I live in-between Athens and ATL. I may go to both shows if I get tickets. I’m still a fan after all these years.
If I lived a little closer I’d probably attend at least one of them. For me, just because an artist is no longer active, it doesn’t lessen my fandom.
Yeah if I were closer…I’d be all over it:+1:
I don’t see tickets for 40 watt show. Nothing past Nov 21
According to this podcast with Scott McCaughey, there’s a decent chance of most of R.E.M. playing at this, though most definitely not a reunion!
A little bird told me the 40 Watt show will be officially announced soon. By “official,” I mean via their website. I realize it’s already been mentioned by other sources.
The 40 Watt show is on the Eventbrite site now. Sadly it’s requiring a code (which I very much do not have)….
