R.E.M.’s Final Encore (and an Early Concert from Germany)

They weren’t quite The Beatles, and they didn’t go out in the same style. (Catch The Beatles’ rooftop gig here.) But R.E.M. gave us 30 good years (ok, maybe 15), and, after calling it quits earlier this week, we thought it worthwhile to present their final live moments. So here it goes: R.E.M.’s final encore played in Mexico City back in November, 2008. It’s a 36 minute set that features “Supernatural Superserious,” “Losing My Religion,” “I Believe,” “Country Feedback,” “Life and How to Live It,” and “Man on the Moon.”

Thanks to @opedr for the great find and, for good measure, we’re throwing in a vintage R.E.M. concert recorded in Germany in 1985 from the Fables of the Reconstruction tour. These were good old days.
