R.E.M. Live!

R.E.M. Live

R.E.M. Live is a live album from R.E.M., recorded at the Point Theatre, Dublin, on February 26 and February 27, 2005, the closing nights of the winter European leg of the Around The World Tour in support of their thirteenth studio album Around the Sun released in late 2004. It was released in the UK on and in the US a day later as a two-CD audio set and a DVD, then released in February 2008 as a triple vinyl set. The performance was filmed by Blue Leach.

R.E.M. Live features rare performances of "I Took Your Name" from 1994's Monster and "Ascent of Man" from Around The Sun as well as the previously unreleased "I'm Gonna DJ." A studio version of that song would later appear on the band's 2008 effort, Accelerate.

On September 26, 2007, the band launched R.E.M. Live Zine to solicit reviews from fans and promote the album.

On October 12, 2007, the two-CD audio part was leaked onto the Internet with a message to the downloaders encouraging them to buy the official package, not only to get the DVD, but to support releases with lower prices within the music industry such as this triple-disc-set.

The DVD has the option for stereo or digital 5.1 surround sound.
