An upcoming concert will celebrate the 40th anniversary of R.E.M.’s debut EP, Chronic Town. While the show sold out quickly, fans who couldn’t get tickets, or don’t live anywhere near it, will get a chance to experience the once-in-a-lifetime event. 

The concert, set for December 15, will have The Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson leading the house band and special guests, including Darius Rucker, Chris Robinson, John Cameron MitchellFred Armisen and more, performing the five-track EP in its entirety, along with other fan-favorites. Now, fans can enjoy the experience from their couch because the concert, at Atlanta’s Coca-Cola Roxy, will be streamed live on Veeps, with limited tickets available now.

Proceeds from the concert will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
