The US rockers play rare instore

R.E.M are to play a rare instore gig the Apple Store in London next week (March 26).

The gig will mark the third anniversary of the iTunes Live From London series, which in the past has featured the likes of Stereophonics, Supergrass and Keane.

R.E.M will be playing exclusive tracks from their new album ‘Accelerate’, which is released the following Monday (March 31).

The show, at the Apple Store on Regent Street, will be performed, recorded and sold exclusively on all 22 iTunes stores worldwide.

This event is not open to the public, but will be held for 450 chosen fan club members and competition winners only.

The show comes just two days after R.E.M play a sold-out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall as part of the ICA’s 60th birthday celebrations, with Foals and The Duke Spirit supporting.
