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
