Catch 22 Promotions presents Stipe – The Definitive R.E.M. tribute, 03/05/19, Zephyr Lounge Leamington Spa.
R.E.M. remain one of the world’s most enigmatic stadium rock bands. With a string of peerless albums running through the 80s and 90s; one eye on the underground and one eye on the soaring chorus; it’s safe to say we will never see their like again.
Whether it’s laying major festivals or appearing on the One Show, performing for Michael Stipe himself, Stipe are the definitive R.E.M. tribute – a complete 6 piece band, and encyclopaedic knowledge of the back catalogue, the boys from Athens’ legacy is in good hands.
Supporting will be The Swaps and Shanade.
The Swaps – Swoopy melodies, unexpected turns, boogaloo drive and waltz-time swing, the band deliver disco blues, folk-pop turbulence and Delta honk to an increasingly infatuated population – live and on local and national radio.
Shanade is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter with a powerful, soulful voice, known for her captivating performances. Her music pairs classic song-writing and heartfelt lyrics with a gutsy modern sound.
14+ show, under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
