Was Lou scheduled to do a tour of the US in early 1977? According to this clipping (taken from the 6 Feb 1977 issue of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, according to newspapers.com), there were def. dates scheduled...and at least one was cancelled.

Did some searching [at newspapers.com] and found that the cancellations started at the end of 1976, details see my reply at Gigography 1976.

Another item I found for the 1977 Gigography is about the Mar.28 concert in Aarhus, DEN

1977.Mar.28 - Vejlby-Risskov Hallen, Aarhus, DEN
article in St. Louis Post-Dispatch of 1977.Mar.29 - p11
https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/140 ... lou%20reed"

Danish Rock Fans Riot After Bottle Is Thrown
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, March 29 (UPI) - Several hundred fans ran wild last night at a concert given by American rock star Lou Reed. Police with dogs were called to restore order. Reed was giving a concert at Aarhus when an empty beer bottle was thrown, nearly hitting him. Reed left the stage and refused to return. Then the fans overturned a stage piano and tried to set fire to the stage. Police were called and a brawl started. Several persons were injured, none seriously.

A recording of the Arhus show has circulated for some time and confirms the bottle throwing incident
