Lou Reed: Everybody's Hero, Not Just the Underground
Lou Reed’s last appearance in New Haven was in 1996 at the Palace Theater, across from the Shubert on College Street. It was part of the Hooky Wooky World Tour promoting the album Set the Twilight Reeling. You’ll still find fans in town who’ll declare that Reed was “phoning it in” that night with a halfhearted effort that was devoid of patter and energy.
