|In an interview with CBS This Morning in early-December, Michael Stipe proclaimed, "I think I'll sing again." Stipe had only made a few appearances behind the microphone since R.E.M. disbanded in 2011. But at Patti Smith's concert at New York's Webster Hall Monday night, Stipe served as the surprise opening act, delivering his first substantial performance in nearly four years and making his debut as a solo artist. Stipe's six-song set was mixed with R.E.M. songs and unlikely covers.
