R.E.M. begins work on their next record later this spring with producer Jacknife Lee who has produced records for U2, Snow Patrol, and Bloc Party. The five shows in Dublin will showcase songs from these spring recording sessions and, as such, will be a rare opportunity to hear songs before they are released on record. The Olympia dates are the only scheduled shows for R.E.M. in 2007.
