Synopsis by Mark Deming
After releasing their album Green in 1989, R.E.M. found themselves growing from a well-respected alternative band with a loyal cult following to a group with a platinum album and mainstream success, rolling into large arenas as a headliner for the first time. R.E.M.: Tourfilm captures the group on and off stage for several dates on the Green tour, performing 17 songs, including "Stand," "The One I Love," "Fall on Me," "Finest Worksong," "South Central Rain," "It's the End of the World As We Know It," and "Perfect Circle."
