AND SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL

FROM

THE VELVETS

www.thevelvetslive.com

The Velvets are a gathering of UK based musicians/fans of

The Velvet Underground. Four talented multi-instrumentalists

coming together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the groups’

first album release ‘The Velvet Underground and Nico’.

The two hour show sees THE VELVETS performing classic songs

from 1967-1970. Through the pop splendour of ‘Sunday Morning’

and ‘Femme Fatale,’ to the darker decadence of ‘Heroin’ and

‘Venus In Furs’, the band create from a palette of VU sounds, yet

add their own, unique lustre finish. NOT a tribute show but more

a celebration of The Velvet Underground.

Vocalist and guitarist, Steve Daggett said “We are looking forward

to performing these great songs on the Academy Tour 2017. Particularly the gig at NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, o2 ACADEMY 2 on

the 9th September, our 'hometown' show.
