Dylan is coming to Helsinki but fellow 66-year-old Lou Reed is coming to Tallinn on July 11. Being a fan of the Velvets songbook, I'm a little intrigued. Like a lot of older icons/contemporary lit figures, he's no great shakes musically. But he surrounds himself with all sorts of people on stage, whereas Dylan usually just has a tight rock band, and it seems like a bit of a carnival atmosphere ("and the coloured girls go"). Certainly he has mellowed from back when Warhol was forcing him to share a stage with Nico.
