REM invade London Royal Albert Hall, ICA, Apple Store + Accelerate

REM will make London theirs next week when they invade the UK. Michael Stipe, Peter Buck and Mike Mills will be performing two shows in the Capital alongside The ICA REM day.

Just before the release of their new studio LP 'Accelerate', REM announced they will play Apple Store on London's Regent Street for a selection of lucky competition winners on Wednesday March 26th, 2008. This will follow what is sure to be one of the events of the year - REM's highly anticipated headline performance at The Royal Albert Hall on Monday March 24th.

The ICA have put together a stellar day of REM related events in tribute to the band and their electrifying new album 'Acclerate'. The day will consist of a pre-release playback of the new material, an exclusive screening of Vincent Moon's R.E.M film Six Days, plus a Q&A with Vincent and Michael Stipe.
