I saw them once on the Green tour, just before they made the move up from halls to arenas, and they were stunning. I saw them again on the Up tour, and wished I hadn't.

I saw them at the Rock en Seine Festival last month. It was not so bad, but it's not the kind of band I like to see live, it's too.... you know, mainstream, catchy,...

No, I didn't want to see her show, I was the only one who was laughing when they 've announced the cancellation.

I saw them in '95 (Sonic Youth were opening, only reason I was there) and they were incredibly boring and the exact opposite of energetic. I tried to be open minded, but they really reminded me of what seeing the Stones in '82 must have been like - old guys wearing clothes they look ridiculous in trying to act sexy while sidemen carried them through their own songs. I left after about 5 songs figuring I wouldn't have to deal with parking lot hassles then.

All the REM shows I've seen were in the 80's......and outside of one or two times they were always amazing.

They were still in the process of regrouping after Bill Berry quit, and were probably as close as they've ever been to calling it a day. Their live shows at the time kind of reflected that uncertainty.

Hell, they even had some decent albums in the '80s too. At least at first...

Was that when they were touring Monster? I'd have liked to have seen that tour.
