    I was stationed at Great Lakes in “75” and was able to attend this CLASSIC show. Rush opened the show prior to Neal Pert. Lou Reed hit the stage and the left side erupted into an all out brawl. Then I witnessed Lou Reed SLAM on stage. What an absolutely CLASSIC rock show it was. I’m 69 now and still remember this show like it was yesterday!!! Long live R&R !!!

    ok, boomer
    was middle of spring quarter of junior year at N.U.
    a friend & i decided that Friday afternoon
    (evening?) to go see Lou. don't remember which friend,,,& it might have been two friends...no issues getting there from Evanston. bought tickets
    (balcony) at the box office. don't remember co$t. ballroom wasn't 100% full - - maybe 80 - 85%

    fantastic show! seems like there was opening act but can't remember which. there was a lot of MDA in Evanston that spring so strong chance we had dosed pre-show

    White light/white heat;;; i don't remember the order of songs but Satellite of Love,,,Perfect Day;;;I'm waiting for the Man;;;Walk on the Wild Side all incluided. and a looooooooong version of Sweet Jane. what sticks out distinctly was Lou Reed collapsing on stage mid-song,,mid-show. coupla three roadies came out & carried Lou off stage two songs later,,,(might have been 1.5) he came back onstage energetic as all get out. figured at the time that they shot him up with _ _ _ _ _ or perhaps a cocktail of - - - - - and _ _ _ _ _ __

    anyway a footnote. Lou was great,,,may he R.I.P.,,,,,show was great. in past 44 years it has occurred to me whole collapsing thing was a "publicity stunt."

    thanks, safe journeys
