R.E.M. makes surprise appearance at last show of the Minus 5 tour
REMhq

R.E.M played a blistering version of "Country Feedback" near the end of the Minus Five's show at the Georgia Theatre in Athens tonight. Mike, Michael and Bill joined Peter on stage after a brief intermission in the Minus Five's set and, along with Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin who played percussion, treated the crowd to the "Out of Time" track which has become a live fan favorite over the years. Mike played keyboard while Bill played bass.

Earlier in the night there were some indication that the band might perform as Michael, Mike, and Bill were seen enjoying the show in the audience. After Mike helped out on keyboard on a couple of Minus Five numbers, the crowd seemed to sense an appearance by the band and they weren't disappointed.

The show marked the end of the Minus Five's tour of the US.
