REM by Stipe

REM BY STIPE at The Fleece Fri 1 September 2017 from 07:00 pm

Stipe  have been around since 1996 and was originally called 'Driver8' then 'Stipe'. Formed by Richard Southern, the original line-up gigged mainly in the North of England and Scotland. Over the next few years Richard also fronted Midlands based "Monster" playing many gigs throughout the U.K and Europe . Honing and perfecting Michael Stipe's very individual stage persona.
 
In 2002, Richard decided it was time for a new version of the band called 'Stipe'.
This line-up debuted on January 1st 2003, and over the next few years built up an enviable reputation as an authentic and entertaining tribute, playing all over the UK with regular visits to Ireland and also Europe including Malta, Italy and Sicily. During this time the band's web site became the most popular on search engines Google and MSN, and the vast majority of venues - from small clubs to huge festivals - have made regular return bookings.


In 2014 the lineup was refreshed bringing back some of the original members, along with new talent, to produce the strongest and most authentic sounding REM Tribute.

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email gigs@thefleece.co.uk for more details.
