Lou Reed Gigography - Research Results (1976)

Post by MJG196 » 02 Apr 2020 21:00

1976 was a light year of touring for Lou.

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!
