R.E.M. have announced that they will play five shows in Dublin this Summer, rehearsing new material before they enter the studio to record their fourteenth studio album.

Michael Stipe, Peter Buck and Mike Mills will be practising their new songs at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre for five nights starting from June 30.

Speaking about the shows in the city, Michael Stipe said: “Returning to Dublin for our live rehearsal this summer provides the great start we need for our next albums work. I intend to hit the ground running.”

Mike Mills adds: “I’ve seen so many great shows at the Olympia, from The Waterboys to Lou Reed, and am thrilled to play at this wonderful venue, and in front of some of the best fans in the world, too.”

The new album is the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2004’s “Around The Sun.” As previously reported, production duties will be performed by Jacknife Lee, whose previous credits include U2’s “How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.”

R.E.M. play the Olympia Theatre on June 30, and July 1, 3, 4 and 5.

Tickets are available from the Olympia Theatre box office from today (March 31) and online at here
