A HOMAGE to the Velvet Underground will be entertaining music fans in the Dee Valley.

Five-piece band VU will be performing at The Sun Inn, Llangollen on Friday, April 19.

VU’s set will include classics such as All Tomorrow’s Parties, Femme Fatale, I’m Waiting For The Man, Rock ‘n Roll, Sweet Jane and Venus In Furs.

The gig will also mark the 50th anniversary since the recording of the double album 1969: The Velvet Underground Live.

Co-founder Richard Cohen believes that VU are only one of a few UK-based acts paying tribute to the music icons and hopes that this will attract some ardent fans of the band’s music to the gig.

He said: “We all enjoy a shared passion for The Velvet Underground and are really looking forward to performing in Llangollen.

"Although we aim to play the songs fairly true to type, the use of some unusual instruments and our own inimitable style will add an interesting dynamic to the performance, which will also be supported by a visual spectacle.”

Tickets are £5.81 in advance (including booking fee) and they are available at www.gigantic.com.

Alternatively, they are £8 on the door.

VU will be onstage at the Sun Inn at around 9.30pm.
