The Velvet Underground & Nico - 50 Year Anniversary

Celebrating 50 Years of The Velvet Underground catch THE VELVETS on their UK tour performing Velvet Underground classics from '67-70.

Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrVMWPc86yw

The Velvets are a gathering of UK based musicians/fans of The Velvet Underground. Four talented multi-instrumentalists joined together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the groups’ first album release ‘The Velvet Underground and Nico’.

The two hour show sees THE VELVETS performing classic songs from 1967-1970. Through the pop splendour of ‘Sunday Morning’ and ‘Femme Fatale,’ to the darker decadence of ‘Heroin’ and ‘Venus In Furs’, the band create from a palette of VU sounds, yet add their own, unique lustre finish. Not just a tribute show but more a glorious celebration of The Velvet Underground.

Arguably the most important band of all time! I once gave a lecture on how the Velvets were more important than the Beatles - the latter created the pop music phenomenon, but the Velvets changed the paradigm of music forever mixing classical ability (Cale) with lack of traditional music ability of Reed. This set the stage for all forms of non-traditional based music from punk to industrial to electronic music in general.
