Lou Reed takes Metal Machine Trio on the road
Lou Reed's Metal Machine Trio will embark on a UK and European tour on April 17th, when they perform what is described as “A Night of Deep Noise.”
Featuring Lou Reed (processed & unprocessed guitars & mini continuum), Ulrich Krieger (tenor sax & live-electronics), and Sarth Calhoun (live processing & continuum fingerboard), the Metal Machine Trio concerts, although influenced and inspired by Reed’s seminal 1975 album 'Metal Machine Music', won’t duplicate the original album, but will instead opt for entirely new unique music, noise and soundscapes.
The MM3 European tour dates include Cambridge Junction (April 17), Oxford O2 Academy (April 18), Ether Festival - Royal Festival Hall, London (April 19), La Cigale, Paris (April 21), Domino Festival - Ancienne Belgique, Brussels (April 22), DR Koncerthuset, Copenhagen (April 24), Sentrum Scene, Oslo (April 26), Ole Bull Scene, Bergen (April 27), Festival Alternatilla - Teatre Principal de Palma, Mallorca (April 30).
To coincide with the UK & European tour dates, Lou Reed will release a newly re-mastered edition of the original 1975 'Metal Machine Music' album on 180 gram double gatefold vinyl, Audio DVD & Blu-ray. Each format features a stereo reproduction of the original quadraphonic master, playable on home theatre systems.
