(PR) R.E.M. recently made their first-ever appearance on the historic Austin City Limits stage. Almost three decades into their career and just weeks before the release of their 14th studio album Accelerate, on a breezy Texas day amidst the buzz of South by Southwest, R.E.M. gave the intimate audience of 350 a concert experience that Pitchdork called "amazing" and USA Today dubbed "a special treat."

A one-hour special presentation of Austin City Limits featuring R.E.M. will premiere on PBS on Saturday, May 24 (check local listings for exact time and day). The concert features songs from the band's just released new album, as well as classics like "Man on the Moon" and "Losing My Religion." The show will also feature an exclusive interview with R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, Peter Buck and Mike Mills by ACL Producer Terry Lickona.

"Few bands ever achieve the stature of R.E.M. when it comes to breaking new ground, breaking the mold, making an impact that makes a difference," said Lickona. "Their new music is as good as anything they've ever done, and we're thrilled to bring this episode to the PBS audience and beyond."

Austincitylimits.org, the official website of Austin City Limits will begin streaming clips from the episode in mid-May. The site will also feature a gallery of live photos and extended interview footage with the band. When it comes to presenting live music, Austin City Limits embodies its motto of "Great Music. No Limits."
