VU are a Shropshire-based five-piece Velvet Underground tribute band...… it all started after a stiff gin & tonic...

About this Event

Five-piece VU, a homage to The Velvet Underground, will perform at The Sun Inn, Llangollen on Friday 19 April. VU’s set will include classics such as All Tomorrow’s Parties, Femme Fatale, I’m Waiting For The Man, Rock ‘n Roll, Sweet Jane and Venus In Furs; and one Lou Reed solo number Satellite of Love; among many others. The gig will also mark the 50th anniversary since the recording of the double album 1969: The Velvet Underground Live.

Co-founder Richard Cohen, believes that VU are only one of a few specific UK based acts paying tribute to the music icons and hopes that this will attract some ardent fans of the band’s music to the gig. He said: “We all enjoy a shared passion for the Velvet Underground and are really looking forward to performing in Llangollen. Although we aim to play the songs fairly true to type, the use of some unusual instruments and our own inimitable style will add an interesting dynamic to the performance, which will also be supported by a visual spectacle.”
