Lou Reed
Five years to the day since Lou Reed‘s tragic passing, some of Perth’s best musicians are coming together to pay tribute to the late rock and roll icon. The Lou Reed Celebration Show goes down this Saturday, October 27 at Badlands Bar and will feature three sets including one dedicated to playing, in full, Reed’s acclaimed 1973 album Berlin.

We have two double passes to give away!

The show is the vision of Perth music veteran Greg Dear (The Holy Rollers, The Beautiful Losers) who says we can look forward to a three-hour show celebrating the legacy of Reed’s music with a six-piece band accompanied by a four-piece horn section and backing singers. “Lou’s popular songs and the ones that I assume most people will want to hear are there,” explains Dear. “I wanted to cover the breadth of Lou’s career from The Velvet Underground through to his later work, and also to perform the songs that I think are his best from the various eras.”

To enter simply email us here at with LOU REED in the subject line and tell us your favourite Lou Reed song on the Facebook post. Don’t forget to like the X-Press Facebook page and sign up to the newsletter to be in the running!

Competition closes Friday, October 26 at 5pm. Please only enter if you can attend. You must be a Perth, WA resident and able to attend Badlands Bar this Saturday, October 27.
