Lou Reed has a new dvd out Aug 1st-details below-


On 9th August 2009 in Chicago, Illinois, Lou Reed assembled a never-before-featured cast of musicians into a band which essentially tore the house down at Lollapalooza

The band included Lou stalwarts Rob Wasserman (bass), Tony ‘Thunder’ Smith (drums), Mike Rathke (guitar), plus the Lou’s recent sideman, Steve Hunter (who played on Lou Reed’s ‘Berlin’), Kevin Hearn (keyboards), Ulrich Krieger (sax) and Sarth Calhoun (electronics, fingerboard continuum, processing).

This historic Lou Reed set at Lollapalooza includes the classics Walk on the Wild Side and Sweet Jane, plus rare gems including Senselessly Cruel, Waves of Fear and Mad.

Lou’s performance also features a 15-minute mid-set section of instrumental noise performed by Lou's Metal Machine Trio, adding an extra bit of intensity to the proceedings.

This Lou Reed performance has been hailed as one of the greatest ever at Lollapalooza.
