Lou Reed Will Tour ‘From VU to LULU’ This Summer

It is possible that you are one of the people who enjoyed Lou Reed and Metallica’s art-metal album, Lulu, much in the way that it’s possible that you could incur bird flu one day, or perhaps play Ultimate Frisbee while sober. If you’re one of the few, you’ll be excited to know that Lou Reed is embarking on a tour this summer called "From VU to Lulu," which will presumably touch on those songs and the ones in between from his long, long career. It’s European only, for now, but if you start an online petition I’m sure Reed will announce U.S. dates soon enough.

He’ll be without Metallica, unfortunately, but that could be for the best. Instead, you will maybe get to hear "Sister Ray" go right into "The View." And then your head will explode. Here are those dates, via Pitchfork, as well as a video that superimposes Grandpa Simpson’s voice over the Lulu instrumentals for what really should have been.
