Last night R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” as the musical guest. The appearance wasn’t to perform new R.E.M. material but rather to promote the upcoming, sold-out, David Bowie tribute concerts taking place at The Radio City Music Hall in New York this week. Stipe performed a beautifully stripped down, minimal, piano-accompanied version of Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold the World.”
The Radio City Music Hall concert on Friday, April 1 will be available to stream from the comfort of your own home, for a donation to a non-profit. For more information head over here. In the meantime enjoy Michael Stipe’s performance above.
