Lou Reed: Berlin in Sydney  

Old Grumpy's going to Sydney in December/January for a stage show of his best album. Bob Ezrin and Julian Schnabel are involved. From the NME:

Lou Reed is to get ready for the stage version of his seminal 1973 album Berlin.

In December the singer will fly to Australia to help premiere the stage show.

Following the dates in December, the production is set to run seven times throught mid January 2007 in Sydney at the St.Ann's Warehouse.

The production is being directed by Berlin producer Bob Ezrin.

Reed is due to be joined on stage by Antony Hegarty from Antony & the Johnsons, singer Sharon Jones, Fernando Saunders and Rob Wasserman.

Artistic Director of St Ann's Susan Feldman said:

"I have been wanting to produce Berlin ever since a cousin of mine first handed it to me on a cassette about ten years ago.

"It's been gratifying to engage Lou and some of his closest collaborators - Bob Ezrin, Julian Schnabel, Hal Willner - in what's sure to be a labor of love and an important part of rock history. Berlin is a sad song about people on the edge, that, at its highest moments, achieves a shimmering elegance."

Berlin the stageshow will be performed on:

Sydney, St.Ann's Warehouse (December 14 -17)
Sydney, St. Ann's Warehouse (January 18-20)

Official press release from Lou's website.

...so Lou's doing Berlin, Numan's doing Telekon - if we're talkin' best albums here, when in hell is Bowie gonna trot out Diamond Dogs?

Interesting; why would Lou want Bob Ezrin and Hal Willner on board?

And why was I under the impression that Bob Ezrin was dead?

Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said I'd like to smash every tooth in your head . . .

In reply to:

Not me. I'm almost certainly going to be out of the country at the time. Just my luck...

I wonder if you had Ezrin confused with Michael Kamen, who passed away last year. They were both Pink Floyd collaborators, Ezrin producing 'The Wall' and Kamen orchestrating it and also producing for 'The Final Cut'.

Most interesting since Mr. Reed is playing the Fox Theatre in Redwood (Deadwood) City, CA on Nov. 7. Most astounding since RC is about 20 miles south of San Fran, with no shows in SF. I haven't found any details on this performance yet but get a feeling it's a warm up for Oz.

It is my opinion and I am unanimous in this, because it is my opinion, which is, in fact, mine.

I went and queued up at the State Theatre this morning and was the second person in and got a ticket 2nd row, centre, for the 20th. They opened the box office 10 minutes before the tickets went on sale online at 9:00am and already the front row was unavailable. Obviously saving them for VIPs. I wonder if I'll be sitting behind anyone famous? Last time (but one) I was at the State was for Elvis Costello a couple of years ago and I was sitting near H.G. Nelson! Yeeeeees, welcome back.

When I saw Reed last year I stood in rain for an hour before the ticket agency opened its doors in order to get frontrow tickets. That's exactly what I got but afterwards some fucking wanker decided to add five extra rows of vip places between me and the stage.
Fucking nice...

Culture, alienation, boredom and despair
