R.e.m. (1989)

Sent out to members of the R.E.M. fan club, this facsimile (in the original meaning of the word) set list is bigger than most (8.5 x 11.5) and documents a 1989 show.

Thanks to the spiffy Internets, (specifically an obsessive concert chronology fan site), the venue has been revealed. The site also reports that the Indigo Girls opened the show, and its record of performed songs - see it below the list - indicates that the actual show varied somewhat from the set list in the encores and with the insertion of two songs (“Rotary 10” and “Tired of Singing Trouble”) between “Being the Begin” and “I Believe.”
