The members of R.E.M. have paid their dues on the road, and those relatively few but important fans in the groups early days sought out R.E.M. tickets to see the band perform on college campuses and in small clubs across the country. Their rise to success exemplified the potential of grassroots bands that offered an alternative to big-name, corporate music acts that many felt had strayed from the roots of rock and roll. Formed in 1980 in Athens, Georgia, R.E.M. was widely credited with sculpting a sound that marked a return to the essence of rock music. Each successive album and tour brought new fans into the fold, as R.E.M. tickets became a must for people seeking something new. By the end of the decade, sales of R.E.M. tickets would reach new heights as their music penetrated the nations airwaves and grabbed a foothold in the consciousness of mainstream rock fans.
With a simple approach to songwriting and performance that emphasized a natural sound and eschewed trendy synth sounds and trendy production, R.E.M. sounded different than anything else. Their early shows were intimate affairs, and R.E.M. tickets were popular on campus. The band stuck to its guns and stayed on the road, gradually finding new fans eagerly awaiting the chance to buy R.E.M. tickets when their favorite indie band came to town. Critical accolades largely outweighed sales and airplay in the early days. Their first single, "Radio Free Europe" was lauded by the mainstream rock press, but largely ignored by pop radio. The band's EP, "Chronic Town" and their gorgeous full-length album, "Murmur" earned praise in both the U.S. and the UK, but the band's music largely flew below the radar of radio programmers. By staying on tour throughout most of the year, R.E.M. solidified a growing fan base, and R.E.M. tickets slowly grew in popularity as their music reached new ears.
Their fortunes would turn gradually, and with more airplay and bigger records, fans flocked to buy R.E.M. tickets, as the band's music became a more familiar sound on American commercial radio. R.E.M. soldiered on, producing a string of albums that have now become classics; "Reckoning" (1984), "Fables of the Reconstruction" (1985) and "Lifes Rich Pageant" (1986) were easily found in virtually any college dorm room, but the band's persistence would pay off in 1987 with the release of "Document," an album that brought chart success with the single "The One I Love." The band ended the decade with their greatest success yet, the 1988 album "Green" that featured radio and MTV hit, "Stand." R.E.M. had arrived, poised for even greater success with bigger headlining tours and TV appearances that helped spread the word. Their live show was strong, and R.E.M. tickets enjoyed their greatest popularity so far.
R.E.M. recorded two smash albums in a row, "Out of Time" (1991) and "Automatic for the People" (1992), but their unprecedented success was unaccompanied by live performances in support of their masterpieces, so fans would have to wait until the 1995 tour for the opportunity to get R.E.M. tickets. In 1995, R.E.M. toured in support of "Monster," a back-to-rock-basics album that was embraced by fans, successive tours and releases have made them a veteran rock group, and R.E.M tickets are among the biggest sellers.
