A public memorial will be held for the former Velvet Underground frontman at Lincoln Center in NYC, and it's a unique way to celebrate the life of this legendary musician. In most memorial services, you can expect speeches and performances in honor of the deceased, but in this case there won't be any of those things. Just Lou Reed's music, picked by his family and friends, and played for his fans.
If you're in New York City, the memorial will be held at the Paul Milstein Pool & Terrace at Lincoln Center from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14.
Lou Reed died last month from complications during liver transplant surgery earlier this year. He was 71 when he died, and his passing has received lots of attention from musicians and fans around the world. He inspired innumerable musicians throughout the years, but his legacy lives on in his rock and in the Velvet Underground.
