Lou Reed tribute show to be held in New York

Late music legend Lou Reed will be remembered at a tribute show in New York City on Sunday (24Nov13). The concert, which will be held at Manhattan’s Bowery Electric, will feature members of The Vaccines, Patti Smith Band guitarist Lenny Kaye, Reed’s former collaborator Shahzad Ismaily and rockers Hollis Brown, who will perform the Velvet Undergound’s 1970 record Loaded in its entirety.
Proceeds from the gig, titled Last Great American Whale: A Concert in Memory of Lou Reed, will go to the Ali Forney Center, a charity which helps the homeless.
Reed died last month (Oct13) at the age of 71.
