LOU REED'S 1972 MASTERPIECE PLAYED LIVE IN ITS ENTIRETY

TRANSFORMER, The smash hit of the 2015 QLD Cabaret Festival, returns as part of Wonderland at Brisbane Powerhouse.

Led by musical director James Lees, five acclaimed Brisbane vocalists come together to perform Reed’s masterpiece – Alison St Ledger, Sabrina Lawrie, Sandro Colarelli and SS.Sebastian. Joining them will be a stunning 8-piece band featuring Terry Dixon (electric bass), Jeff Lovejoy (guitars), Ruth Gardner (guitars), Richard Grantham (viola/piano), Wayne Jennings (cello), Janey Mac (double bass), Andrew Saragossi (bari sax), and Martin Somerville (piano).

The album itself, produced by David Bowie, heralded Reed’s return to the music scene after his departure from the Velvet Underground. Populated by a cast of outsiders, freaks and glamorous Warhol Factory stars including Candy Darling, Joe Dallesandro, Holly Woodlawn and Warhol himself, the album contains some of Reed’s finest songs including Perfect Day, Satellite Of Love and his biggest hit single, Walk On The Wild Side.
