Lou Reed & Metallica Perform on ‘Later … With Jools Holland’

YouTube / Later … With Jools Holland

The ‘Loutallica’ experience marches on with a recent trip over the pond. Lou Reed & Metallica recently set their sights on entertaining the crowd of the UK based show ‘Later…With Jools Holland.’ Their performance included the original track ‘Iced Honey’ from their recent ‘Lulu’ release and a cover of the Velvet Underground tune ‘White Light/White Heat.’

Prompted by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concert where Metallica and Lou Reed both performed in 2009, the two forces spoke about potentially working together on a future project and ‘Lulu’ was conceived.

With ‘Lulu’ receiving mixed reviews (read ours here), Metallica fans don’t really seem to be fully embracing this experimental amalgamation between the two iconic sounds, but that doesn’t seem to be slowing them down any.

Watch the videos below of ‘Iced Honey’ and ‘White Light/White Heat’ from the show. Judging by the comments left on YouTube, they’re still not winning fans over with one person simply asking, “Why does Metallica hate us?”

‘Lulu’ sold only 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release.
