Pavarotti? : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

I heard that R.E.M. have confirmed to take part in Pavarotti&Friends concert next year. Have any of you guys hear anything about that? If they're coming to Europe next year, maybe they'll play some other festivals, too? I surely hope so.

I hope so to, but i haven't heard anything about it. But i guess that there could well be some kind of promotion tour for the new album, which will be out next year. I hope they do some festivals, they were magical at glastonbury last year.

Yeah Meg. I'm the source of that information about Pavarotti & friends: I wrote it 4 the site of Jordan Macuseck. according to Il Corriere della Sera, the best Italian Newspaper, R.E.M. was contacted by Nicoletta Mantovani, manager of Pavarotti and they said "Yes" 4 the next year show. That's all. Hope this help.
