    I am so bummed. He was in my top five not to miss. This is not a perfect day.
    He sold his soul for a shot at fame
    Catchphrase and wigs and the jokes are lame...

    Here was Lou onstage 2 weeks ago, nothing appears out of the ordinary. Laurie Anderson still has her 3 April shows on sale so it doesn't appear to be some kind of extreme medical emergency.

    Acts that have cancelled Coachella:

    Future Sound of London
    Wilco
    Hard Fi
    The Subways
    Jimmy Eat World
    Cocteau Twins
    Doves
    We are Scientists
    Madness
    New Young Pony Club
    The Horrors
    The Streets
    Turbonegro
    Amy Winehouse
    Hercules and Love Affair
    Grace Jones
    Mew
    Klaxons
    Cat Power
    La Roux
    Lou Reed

    And more I am not thinking of it.

    So I expect bands that I want to see to cancel Coachella, I don't know if it's just bad luck or they have a bad booking agent(s), not sure.

    There are plenty of bands that have played Coachella that SHOULD have been dropped but didn't.

    Yup, I think it was '08. I remember waiting for Clipse to start and then some dude with a microphone surprises everyone in the audience by announcing their cancellation. Super lame.

    I remember that happening for The Field that year too, and in the same way. Apparently the backup band was delayed at the border due to expired visas or something. Ridiculous.

    That's right. I read online before heading to the festival that day that The Field had visa issues. I could be wrong, but it seemed like Clipse was more of a sudden dropout.

    We've now devoted more space in this thread to talking about Lou Reed cancelling than we ever did to Lou Reed playing.

    Super bummed. This was the act that I was most looking forward to this year. Thought it might be my last/only change to get to see him perform live.

    I am of the opinion that Lou's performance would have been hit or miss but I'm still sad he won't be there. Iggy Pop or Bowie would suffice as a replacement but that shit isn't going to happen.
    Oh look it stopped snowing...

    I would definitely like a better explanation than, "Unavoidable complications.".

    To me that sounds like a bunch of BS.

    I think Coachella sound be renamed to "Unavoidable complications"...

    That fits it better than Coachella Music and Arts Festival.

    Lou Reed has cancelled a number of US tour dates, including his performances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival next month.

    The former Velvet Underground man was due to play a handful of West Coast shows around his festival performances, but now all shows have been pulled.

    As well as his appearances at Coachella Weekend One (April 12) and Weekend Two (April 19), Reed has cancelled appearances at San Francisco's Warfield (April 14), the Monterey Golden State Theatre (April 16) and Los Angeles' Orpheum (April 17).

    Promoters Goldenvoice have said that the LA show has been cancelled "due to unavoidable complications."

    Earlier this month, Lou Reed surprised fans in New York when he made an appearance at a playback of his seminal album 'Transformer'.

    Fans of Reed had gathered in a New York bar for a playback of the LP on March 4 and were shocked to see a familiar figure in the room.

    The vinyl listening session was the first of its kind in New York, with organisers High50.com having enjoyed success with the idea in London.

    High50.com founder and creative director Robert Campbell said Reed appeared to listen to the album, before later discussing with fans the album's best moments and wider cultural significance.

    "Lou Reed is a hero of mine and of many of our readers, so for him to unexpectedly attend our first US event was a rare treat," he said.

    From my knowledge, FSOL nor Madness were never confirmed. Coachella just got a little trigger happy and put those names on the posters when they were not locked in.
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    Upcoming Shows: Nocturnal Wonderland Saturday, Cut Chemist/Dj Shadow - Palladium, Massive Attack SB Bowl, Festival Supreme, Coachella 2015

    I caught a few songs from their set at Outside Lands, pure garbage.

    Don't get me wrong, I went through a huge Metallica phase in high school, but man, they fucking sucked. Sorry.

    Don't apologize for your opinions.

    Yeah and especially when the original person was joking. Who wants to hear that abortion of an album? Or most of that old saggy face's music for that matter especially when his health is bad enough to cancel a whole month's worth of shows.

    Nah -- he'll be offering his "stylings" at a Holiday Inn lounge near you within the next year or two.

    Lou Reed randomly cancelled gigs in Barcelona and New Jersey in late 2012 without a tangible reason made public.
