23 February 1975 - Frankfurt, GER [CANCELLED]

article in European Stars And Stripes of 1975.Feb.25
"1,000 Lou Reed fans disappointed"
https://newspaperarchive.com/european-s ... 1975-p-26/

I can't get the full scan [you only get a free trial, after giving payment/credit card info; well no thanks, then I stop].

But from the scrambled OCR text on the linked page I understand:
--Lou Reed's concert was cancelled at the very last minute, when fans were already in the venue [Jahrhunderthalle, Frankfurt]
--cancellation itself had little to do with the riots during the Italian shows 10 days earlier, but as Barbara Fulk [Wilkinson, see VU photo thread] stated: "Lou went for five nights straight without sleep. He was so exhausted we let him pass out rather than let him go on."
--a big part of the audience were soldiers from near by US bases in Germany
--support act was String Driven Thing, a progressive folk rock band from Scotland
--instead of Lou Reed's show, Doug Yule performed with assistance of the support act

The Munich venue is spelled Deutsches Museum.

There is a poster for a Lou Reed concert in Düsseldorf, Germany on February 24, 1975:

The venue was the Rheinhalle (now called Tonhalle). The Philippshalle (now called Mitsubishi Electric Halle) is an entirely different venue in another part of Düsseldorf.
