IT'S LIKE SUPPORT ROULETTE: If you're planning on going to see REM on their 'in your face, Bono' world tour next year, you'll have a chance of seeing Bright Eyes or - slightly less excitingly - the Thrills in support. ("Seeing" is a bit of a stretch, of course, as the venues are so huge you're not really likely to "see" anything much). On the other hand, you might get a set from Joseph Arthur or Brainstorm. If you want to check if you're one of the lucky ones, here's the REM dates and supports announced so far:
