Velvet Underground Reunion


The Velvet Underground is reuniting! Well — sort of. Velvet alums Lou Reed, drummer Maureen “Moe” Tucker, and bassist Doug Yule are getting together at the New York Public Library on December 8th at 7 p.m. to “talk about the band’s history and legacy” with Rolling Stone’s David Fricke. No musical performance is planned. It’s already sold out, but NYPL says that there still may be some tickets available at the door. Could be worth a drive up to Manhattan.

Perhaps this is a precursor to some sort of reunion performances or tour? They’d certainly have to get John Cale involved, and they’d have to find a replacement for guitarist Sterling Morrison, who died in 1995. Maybe Dean Wareham would do it? Stay tuned…
