On Friday November 11th, Lou Reed and Metallica performed a six song live set plus gave an interview for a German radio broadcast. A small group of fans were also invited to view the performance, which was also filmed for a webcast.
In support of their ‘Lulu’ project – a release which has received some atrocious reviews, some of the most negative of either paties career – the band performed a selection of songs from their 2011 record, plus a cover of The Velvet Underground classic ‘White Light/White Heat’.
In its first week of release, ‘Lulu’ sold a mediocre 13,000 copies in the US, placing at #36 on the Billboard chart – exactly the same position it reached on the UK chart. It was a top ten hit in Germany.
