I have promised to keep you updated with (potential) tour news. Alas, no official confirmation whether R.E.M. intend to tour in support of their latest album Collapse Into Now yet; however, this little snippet is probably gonna launch a landslide of speculation. I’ve scanned this page from the latest issue of NME (15 January 2011).

Dear Mr Peter Buck, if you are reading these lines, allow us remind you that you are the biggest dude in the band; and if you must beat up some bandmates in order to persuade them to tour, you have our blessings!! thumbs up

UPDATE: Oh and while we’re on the subject of Collapse Into Now, this blog features a description of all songs! Obviously if you don’t like spoilers, then stay way from this article.

    Thanks for the scan!!

    Peter as well as Mike really seem to be very confident about the new album, it’s so nice to hear that they are still so excited and passionate about their work and are having fun with what they do – and that makes me anticipate the album even more thumbs up

    The new part we get to hear from Peter about touring: They will be holding a meeting early this year to decide about this?
    Ooooooh, I’m so keeping all my fingers and toes crossed, they don’t get any younger… nail biting

    GUYS, you gotta TOUR, you hear that?! I’m begging you!! praying

    Mike is always excited and happy about touring, so I guess (and hope) that for the meeting, that will make 2 votes for "tour?: [x]YES!" big grin

    Ditto Kirsten! Or, perhaps Peter should employ the UNpretty Persuasion! =rolling on the floor

  3. Linda Says:

    I recall Peter saying once that he had wrestled Michael to the ground …..Now’s the time Pete old boy!

  4. Sergio Says:

    Unfotunately I believe that this time Michael will win

    Michael… or Peter with his Baseball Project…
