Tribute to R.E.M.
Murmur recreates the power and passion of R.E.M.’s live performances with precise musical detail. Though still great friends, the founding members of R.E.M. have made it quite clear that they will never tour again. Murmur’s mission is to bring audiences as close as possible to the profound experience of R.E.M. live. Often thought of as the founders of the alternative rock genre, R.E.M.’s influence on modern music is undeniable and they are widely seen as one of the most important alt-rock bands of all time. When asked about R.E.M., Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain said, “I don’t know how that band does what they do. God, they’re the greatest.”
