This was a rare Indiana appearance by Lou Reed on a very rainy and stormy night in 1974. This show occurred between the release of Rock n Roll Animal and Lou Reed Live so the timing was great. Memorial Coliseum was fairly small and had a high school gymnasium feel for this general admission show. Daryl Hall and John Oates were supposed to be the opening act but cancelled due to travel problems associated with the weather. Grey Ghost was the opening act and might have been a local band. Lou was in good form but his backing band was not as strong without the twin guitars of Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter that made Rock n Roll Animal a classic. – Rob Perdue
