The Velvet's legend performs his 1973 opera

TAGS:

Lou Reed performed his landmark album, “Berlin” at the Edinburgh Playhouse last night (June 25).

As part of his AEG promoted European tour, Reed will be performing the controversial 1973 album in its entirety at two more UK shows: the Nottingham Opera House on tonight (June 26) and London’s Royal Albert Hall on June 30.

As with the two shows last year, he will again be performing with a 30-piece ensemble, including his regular touring band, a string and horn section and a children’s choir.

“Lou Reed’s Berlin”, a film directed by Julian Schnabel, is also due for release July 25.
