Lou Reed is to bring his Berlin tour back to Europe for a further twenty shows this Summer.

As part of his AEG promoted European tour, Reed will be performing the controversial 1973 album in its entirety at three venues in the UK, the Edinburgh Playhouse on June 25, Nottingham Opera House on June 26 and London’s Royal Albert Hall on June 30.

As with the two UK 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.
