Video: Arctic Monkeys & More Pay Tribute To Lou Reed

Arcade Fire have paid tribute to Lou Reed by performing snippets of 'Satellite of Love' and 'Perfect Day' during a radio session.

The Canadian band, who released new album 'Reflektor' yesterday (October 28), were performing an NPR 'First Listen' session in Los Angeles last night when they slipped to brief medley into the end of a performance of new album track 'Supersymmetry'. The whole thing can be streamed here with the Lou Reed tribute medley starting around the 17-minute mark.

Arcade Fire are the latest big name act to pay tribute to Reed, who died on Sunday (October 27) aged 71 of liver disease. Arctic Monkeys last night (October 28) played a cover of 'Walk On The Wild Side' during a gig in Liverpool while David Bowie, Morrissey, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, The Strokes and The Who have also marked the late songwriter's death with messages.
