Lou Reed will release a live DVD of his historic performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago in 2009. The forthcoming European tour in July features virtually the same band as showcased the live DVD. The Lollapalooza DVD will be released worldwide in July 2011 by Sister Ray Enterprises. Songs performed on the DVD include Sweet Jane, Senselessly Cruel, Waves of Fear, and Paranoia Key of E, to name but a few.
Reed will perform two UK concerts including the Hop Farm Music Festival (July 2), and a special one-off London concert at the HMV Apollo Hammersmith (July 4). Other artists to perform the Hop Farm Music Festival include Morrissey, Iggy & the Stooges and Patti Smith.
At the London Hammersmith concert, and throughout the tour, Lou will perform songs from his vast catalogue of albums including The Raven, New York, the Blue Mask and Transformer. Reed will also perform three French dates - Le Grand Rex in Paris (July 5), Les Vieilles Charrues Festival, Carhaix (July 17), and Lyon's Les Nuits de Fourviere Festival (July 26).
