R.E.M. Head to Hollywood Bowl, Announce 2008 Tour Dates

’Superman!’R.E.M. will play the Hollywood Bowl this May. No on-sale date announced yet; the band will be supported by Modest Mouse and The National while on tour.

PICTURED: Bizarre-yet-cool “Superman” promotional 12″ vinyl found in Amoeba dollar bins last weekend (more on those dollar bins TK).

ILL-ADVISED BRAG: The last time I saw R.E.M. they still had four members. Radiohead opened. Bill Berry gave me a virtual hi-five.
