Lou Reed Signs Worldwide Recording Deal With Sanctuary Records and Lou Reed Two Rare UK Concerts in April 2005.
Lou Reed has announced his full 2005 European Tour Dates, including three newly added dates in Finland. The legendary musician, whose career has spanned four decades - from his very first album "The Velvet Underground and Nico," (see here) will be performing two rare concerts in the UK during his European visit. UK dates include Leicester De Montfort Hall on Thursday April 21st, and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on Friday April 22nd.
Over the last 40 years as composer, poet, lyricist, musician, vocalist and sound pioneer, Lou Reed has constantly pushed the envelope with his art - and through his lack of compromise transformed many seemingly impossible barriers. In the process he has created not just one, but many of the greatest albums and songs of all time, straight through to his top 10 single success with the dance remix of Satellite Of Love in the UK in 2004. Recently, Lou Reed signed an exclusive worldwide recording deal with Sanctuary Records Group
Over the years he has recorded some of the most outstanding rock'n'roll albums including "Berlin," "Street Hassle," "New York," "The Blue Mask," "Coney Island Baby," "Transformer," "The Bells," "Rock'n'Roll Heart," and "Sally Can't Dance".
His most recent album releases include "The Raven," "Animal Serenade," and "NYC Man: Lou Reed - The Collection" (see here). "Emotion In Action," a double book edition of Reed's photographs was published in October 2003 by 7L and Gerhard Steidl.
