On this day…

R.E.M. 1986

On this day in 1986, R.E.M. performed at the University Of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. During the song “Seven Chinese Brothers,” someone from the audience jumped up on stage and tried to grab Peter Buck’s guitar. He was unsuccessful, but he managed to escape back into the crowd. Peter immediately tore off his guitar and jumped in after him. From the stage Mike Mills yelled: “If anybody sees that guy, grab him and bring him backstage after the show.” And Michael Stipe commented: “So the Republicans won in this state, huh?” After a few minutes, Peter made his way back on stage and the crowd cheered. He re-tuned his guitar, and the band started into the Velvet Underground song “Femme Fatale.” Today we have a live recording of R.E.M. performing “Femme Fatale.”
