On this day in 1995, the “Monster” tour stopped in Salt Lake City, UT. This was also the first performance of the song “Undertow” which ended up as a track on their next album, “New Adventures In Hi-Fi”, which coincidently is the topic of discussion on today’s “R U Talkin R.E.M. Re: Me?” podcast. It comes full circle. Info below provided by remtimeline.com
