10 years ago today (6/30/07), R.E.M. played a five-night series of shows at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre. Dubbed ‘working rehearsals’ by the band, many songs from their forthcoming album Accelerate were debuted, with many of them still as works in progress. Select songs from the performances would later be on the 2009 live album Live at The Olympia. The album is a two-CD release, and contains a total of 39 songs. In addition, a DVD with a documentary entitled This Is Not a Show directed by Vincent Moon is included. Watch “Harborcoat” from the performances…
