So Michael Stipe was hanging around a barbershop in Dublin last night...

Hi Michael!

HEY, REM FANS! It’s the end of the world as you know it (sorry) – Michael Stipe is in Dublin.

The singer turned up unannounced to a gig at the hairdresser-cum-music venue Abner Brown’s Barbershop in Rathmines last night.

Look at him, he’s only delighted to be papped:

There’s no word yet on what Stipe is doing in these parts, but he does appear to be checking out the local music scene. Dublin-based bands, on your guard.
