ENTER GREEN WORLD TOUR CHALLENGE: POST “GREEN” MEMORIES FROM R.E.M. SHOWS AT REMHQ’s Facebook page For A Chance to Win A Special Green-themed Merchandise Package!

We’re holding a sporting social event to coincide with the upcoming release of the Green 25th Anniversary edition (due out May 13 in some locations, May 14 in others).

The GREEN WORLD TOUR Discussion is for fans who saw the band perform during the 1989-90 Green World Tour:

Did you see R.E.M. perform during the Green Tour in 1989? Where, with whom, when, how, why? Why not post a fascinating account of your favorite moment from the show in the comments section of this post just below? We’ll select our favorite reflection, and the winner takes all! One lucky commenter will receive a Green-themed R.E.M. merchandise package for submitting a Green live show memory. The gift package will be straight from the vaults and mists of time and will relate to the record, tour and reissue of GREEN, c. 1988/1989. It will only take a minute so tee up your favorite story of the band playing live and have at it! We aren’t saying exactly what the winner will receive–partly because we are still finding stuff. It will be cool, we can promise that!

Comment lines are open now, and we will close it off on May 10th so we can announce the winner and post the winning story a few days later. Visit the band’s Facebook page to participate!
