Lou Reed to perform at the Royal Albert Hall

Published: Wednesday 4th of June 2008

One of rock music's most influential veteran performers, Lou Reed, is to perform at the world-famous Royal Albert Hall.

As part of his latest European tour, Reed will perform the entirety of his acclaimed 1973 album Berlin which includes tracks such as Lady Day, Men of Fortune and How Do You Think It Feels.

His European gigs will also include an accompanying 30-piece ensemble consisting of his own band, a string and horn section and a children's choir.

Reed was a member of the groundbreaking rock band The Velvet Underground, who were also famous for their association with pop art pioneer Andy Warhol. His solo albums include Tranformer, the obscure Metal Machine Music and last year's Hudson River Wind Meditations.

The London Pass entitles visitors to a free guided tour of the Royal Albert Hall, in addition to a ten per cent discount on selected items in the venue's shop.
