Concert - REM at Stirling Castle:
19 July 1999

||My favourite group came to Stirling Castle (about
2 miles from my house)! I had already seen them last time
they toured Scotland in 1994.
||I went with my friend Peter (another huge REM
fan). We both have all their studio albums (approx. 13). It
was pouring rain the whole way through the concert, and the
queue for getting in stretched at least a mile downhill!!
||Feeder were the warm up band. They played quite a good set.
They weren't as well known as they are nowadays.
||Then on came REM to thunderous applause. They sang about
a 15 song set, then came back on for four encores. The light
show (as you can see from the photos) was spectacular. They
played most of my favourite REM songs such as "The One
I Love", "Find the River" and "It's the
End of the World as we Know it (and I feel fine)".
||Afterwards, we found a pub on the way downhill that was
playing REM Music, so we stayed there till closing time and
met lots of other people from the concert!!

Concert - REM at Murrayfield Stadium:
27 July 1995
||REM were also the first band I ever saw in Concert.
I had just left my YT job, and had thankfully paid for the
tickets in advance, or else I would have not been able to
afford to go. I wasn't as big an REM fan back in 1995, although
I still thought they were a great group. Cranberries were
the support group, and they were brilliant. Also supporting
were a group called Spearhead.
||Anyway, we were not allowed to take any pictures,
so I only managed to take one photo of this concert! Here
is that photo, and also the ticket I bought for the event.
