I gave up on Michael Stipe so many albums ago, but if there was ever a reason to give R.E.M. another chance, it’s now. The band’s 2008 loud-fast-rock album, “Accelerate,” makes up for boring, introspective and ambient disc they’ve made since “Green.”
The band just added an Oct. 24 gig at Nokia in Grand Prairie you can buy tickets on Tuesday. General public ticket sales begin Aug. 22.
