The Sundance Channel next week will re-air the R.E.M. concert documentary “This Is Not a Show: Live at the Olympia in Dublin,” which was included on DVD in the deluxe editions of the band’s recent live album, Live at the Olympia, and premiered on the cable network in late December.
The 56-minute film, directed by Vincent Moon and Jeremiah, will show twice on March 1 and once on March 7. The documentary was filmed during five nights of “working rehearsals” that Michael Stipe and Co. held at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre during June and July of 2007 to road-test new songs prior to recording their hard-rocking Accelerate album, which came out the following year.
