The Velvet Underground Lyrics
The Velvet Underground lyrics were written in a period when the flower power era was drawing to a close. Indeed, the legendary American avant-garde rock band was officially active from 1965 - 1973! The legendary band was conceived when the Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter-guitarist Lou Reed joined forces with the Welsh composer John Cale, who had immersed himself in experimental rock and focused on long, drawn-out drones. Lou Reed, of course, went on to become a revered solo artist, releasing hits like "Walk On the Wild Side" and "Perfect Day"! VU recorded the Reed-penned track “The Ostrich” in 1964, acquired manager Andy Warhol in 1965 and started contributing to his Factory-related Exploding Plastic Inevitable Events. They subsequently briefly hired German singer Nico and released their debut album ‘The Velvet Underground and Nico’ in 1967! What followed was a string of underground hits and especially “I’m Waiting for the Man”, “Heroin” and “Venus in Furs” were favourites at many a Velvet Underground Concert! After Lou Reed’s departure in 1971, singer Doug Yule took over the reins of the group which released the ill-fated ‘Squeeze’. The Velvet Underground lyrics can still be listened to in concert: just secure your tickets for artists inspired by the legendary band here at Worldticketshop.com - Your Ticket to Fun!
The Velvet Underground Tour
The average The Velvet Underground tour during the heyday of the American art rock band took place outside their hometown of New York City because they felt they somehow were more successful outside the Big Apple! The Velvet Underground discography includes such classics as ‘White Light/White Heat’, ‘Loaded’ as well as the acclaimed live album ‘Live at Max’s Kansas City’, which, ironically enough, was recorded in New York City! Powerful pop compositions, beautifully sad viola work courtesy of John Cale and powerfully pulsating rhythms by drummer Maureen Tucker were features used to great effect during a typical The Velvet Underground concert. Tickets for their shows were incredibly popular during the band’s active career but also when they briefly reunited in the early nineties for a handful of dates -including a much-acclaimed appearance at Glastonbury- and their induction in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Indeed, the 1960s band that set out to depict the dark side of flower power greatly influenced future genres like punk and alternative rock! The Velvet Underground’s lyrics to songs like “I’ll Be Your Mirror” and “Sweet Jane”, for example, still provide inspiration for current bands going against the grain. While you can no longer order The Velvet Underground tickets for a good old-fashioned intellectual rock show, you can still secure your tickets for VU disciples like Sonic Youth, for example: premium Sonic Youth Tickets are on offer here at Worldticketshop.com - Your Ticket to Fun!
