The concert marked the first time since the breakup of The Velvet Underground that Reed, Cale and Nico were on stage together.

Lou Reed, John Cale & Nico, live at Le Bataclan, Paris on 29th January 1972. To the surprise and delight of their growing fan base, in early 1972 rumors began to circulate that Lou Reed, John Cale and Nico would be performing together again. In fact they only played one show, at the small Bataclan club in Paris on January 29th. Thankfully, however, a soundboard recording was made, preserving the superb concert for posterity

After decades of being circulated on inferior-sounding bootlegs, the January 1972 reconvergence of Velvet Underground (VU) co-founders Lou Reed (vocals/acoustic guitar), John Cale (ocals), and Nico (vocals/harmonium) in Paris at Le Bataclan has been committed to commercial release. A suitably noir mood hangs over them as they stonily amble through VU staples and key entries from their concurrent solo endeavors. Le Bataclan '72 (2004) is a no-brainer for all dimension of VU, John Cale, Lou Reed, and/or Nico enthusiasts.
