Lou Reed Gigography - Research Results (1974)

Post by MJG196 » 30 Mar 2020 18:00

Hello, Sally Can't Dance tour!

Everything in RED is a change/addition to the Rock N Roll Animal website. I know that there are other dates posted to various concert databases, but I have only added information that I found proof for through ads, old newspapers, concert stubs, etc. None of the new info was taken from a generic database like setlist.fm.

If you have any questions/additions/changes, then please let me know here!

--review in DeTijd [May.20] - delpher.nl/nl/kranten/view?identifier=ddd:011236596:mpeg21:a0074 - sold out, unpredictable, completely different from earlier concerts, played a.o.Herion [brilliant] - Waiting for the Man - Lady Day - Vicious - White Light White Heat [final song]
--review with picture in Het Parool [May.20] - delpher.nl/nl/kranten/view?identifier=ABCDDD:010837427:mpeg21:a0157 - new outlook, not Frankestein but now with boyish bravery, played a.o.Herion [first song] - Vicious - Lady Day - White Light White Heat - Rock 'n' Roll [as encore]
--review in De Volkskrant [May.21] - delpher.nl/nl/kranten/view?identifier=ABCDDD:010849865:mpeg21:a0131 - completely different presentation, not the sick junkie but now a youthful almost healthy boy, played a.o.Sweet Jane [first song] - Vicious - Heroin - Ride Sally Ride [new] - Sally Can't Dance [new, not impressive] - Lady Day [rattling] - Waiting for the Man [good] - Oh Jim [highlight] - Walk on the Wild Side [better than before] - White Light White Heat [controlled but almost boiling over] - Rock 'n' Roll [encore], not a touching but an almost cozy concert

May.24: Carré, Amsterdam, NL - extra night concert starting at 1:00hr [so actually May.25 very early morning...]
--announcement in Leidsch Dagblad [May.22] - leiden.courant.nu/issue/LD/1974-05-22/edition/0/page/5?query=lou%20reed - extra concert friday night May.24 in Carre, Amsterdam
--métamorphose pictures 1972-74 in De Tijd [May.24] - delpher.nl/nl/kranten/view?identifier=ddd:011236599:mpeg21:a0028 - mentioning Edison Award for Transformer and coming night concert in Carré
--review in De Volkskrant [May.27] - delpher.nl/nl/kranten/view?identifier=ABCDDD:010849869:mpeg21:a0105 - Lou Reed in optimal shape, gone was the joking now a truly artistic performance

Interview:
--with Lou Reed [pictures] in music magazine OOR [vol.4 #11, Jun.05, page 1/21, "Lou Reed - full of life and impressive" by Bert vd Kamp, pictures G.Hanekroot]
not a real interview [was agreed, but cancelled], instead a short talk before the May.24 concert
Q: Do you hate interviews? R: They're pointless, as I never tell the truth.
followed by a general description of the four concerts; a.o.humorful, bad boyish, Reed sometimes changes lyrics, e.g.'Heroin be the death of me... Not a chance...!' in Carré [May.24]
