As we noted over the weekend, the former members of R.E.M. seemed to go out of their way to avoid staging a full reunion Saturday night at Peter Buck’s wedding in Portland, Ore., as all four ex-bandmates took the stage to perform during the reception at the Wonder Ballroom at one point or another — just never all at the same time.
We can now offer up some video of the on-stage festivities courtesy of Vivian Johnson (via The R.E.M. Timeline) in the form of this footage of Buck, Mike Mills and Bill Berry (plus some musical compatriots such as Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin) performing The Clique’s “Superman,” a song popularized, of course, by R.E.M.’s album-closing cover on 1986’s Lifes Rich Pageant.
Check it below — and hit up our original post for more photos of the ex-R.E.M. bandmates in action.
