R.E.M. came, saw and conquered the Hollywood Bowl with a staggering set that included most of this year’s Accelerate and old-school classics such as “Pretty Persuasions” and “Fall On Me,” not to mention goosebump-generating takes on “Losing My Religion” and “Ignoreland.” “Ignoreland”! But the crown jewel of the gem-filled set was an acoustic take on Monster‘s “Let Me In,” which found Michael Stipe cutting his voice loose in a way that’s seldom heard. Luckily, someone taped it and now you can hear it as much as you want. More photos and the “Let Me In” MP3 after the jump.
