REM's Michael Stipe Is Bearded And Doing His Best Bowie

    R.E.M. split-up in 2011 and frontman Michael Stipe's public appearances have been way too sporadic for his fans. He's been doing occasional surprise gigs at various places around NYC, growing quite the impressive beard, and can be found supporting Bernie Sanders (and staying angry at Trump for using an R.E.M. song at one of his rallies). Fortunately for us, Michael Stipe made his TV-debut as a solo-artist on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon with a piano-accompanied moving rendition of the 1970 Bowie classic "The Man Who Sold The World." Stipe displayed raw vocals as he got lost in his own passion during the beautiful performance to honor the musical legend who recently passed.

    Stipe's performance on Fallon is just a little preview of what's to come at the David Bowie Tribute concert which takes place this weekend at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Over a dozen fellow artists will join Stipe such as Mumford & Sons, Flaming Lips, Pixies, Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, and more.
