Just got an email from Robert Wilonsky that will be shiny, happy news for R.E.M. fans and Old 97's fans alike. According to R.E.M.'s Web site, the band will perform at Nokia Theater in Grand Prairie October 24, with support from hometown heroes the Old 97's.

Tickets go on sale to the general public a week from today on Friday, August 22. Fan Club and Online Fan Community sales will be next Monday and Tuesday, August 18 and 19.--Jesse Hughey

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
