R.E.M. is offering fans a preview of its upcoming 39-song, 2CD Live at the Olympia album with a video of the set’s opening track, Accelerate cut “Living Well is the Best Revenge.” The video is from the bonus DVD that will be packaged with the deluxe version of the live album, due out Oct. 26. The set was culled from five nights of “working rehearsals” in Dublin in 2007 that preceded the recording of last year’s Accelerate.
