From the R.E.M. Timeline:
"Either missing the encore, or this was an edited radio broadcast (most likely). This show was originally thought to have been on 16 November 1982, however that was the date this show was broadcast on the radio."

So it's definitely NOT 16 November 1982!

On the announcement, it states this is the "B Sharp Concert Series," and a Thirsty Ear Production. Thirsty Ear originates out of Norwalk, CT, and was established in the late 70s as an independent marketing company, pioneering the concept of specialized marketing to the yet-unnamed alternative music world in the U.S. So there's hopefully a master somewhere of this, on cassette or LP or whatever they used to distro to radio stations.
