The legendary Lou Reed is touring Europe in June performing his classic 1973 'Berlin' album with a 30-piece ensemble including a string section, horn section, a children's choir and his core rock band.

To coincide with this ultra rare tour, SonyBMG will release a limited edition digitally remastered tour edition of ‘Berlin’ in special digipack packaging. The "Berlin Tour Edition" will include original artwork and liner notes, and will be a one-off manufacturing run only.

Reed will be performing three 'Berlin' concerts in the UK - Manchester International Festival on Friday 29th June, London Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July. For further details about the UK and European tour dates, please click here.

Apparently this is the only time Lou Reed will tour the 'Berlin' album in all its entirety with a 30-piece orchestra including string section, horn section, children's choir and his core rock and roll band. Tickets for his London shows are exchanging hands for £1,000. Bob Ezrin, the original producer of the 'Berlin' album, will be conducting the orchestra. Can't wait to see Lou on June 30th in London. Berlin is one of the greatest classic rock albums of all time. Outside of Coney Island Baby, Street Hassle and New York, Berlin is a gem.
