Lou Reed set to stage high-pitched concert for dogs

Reed and wife Laurie Anderson will host canine gig in Sydney

Lou Reed set to stage high-pitched concert for dogs
Lou Reed and his partner, experimental musician Laurie Anderson, will be putting on a concert exclusively for dogs as part of Sydney's Vivid LIVE festival on June 5.

The high-frequency 'Music For Dogs' gig will take place on Sydney Opera House’s northern boardwalk at 10am (EST). The show will be 20-minutes long due to the canine audience's short attention span and will be inaudible to the humans present.

"Taking the idea of the apparently inaudible dog whistle to new artistic heights, our canine friends will be treated to a glorious cacophony of sound, while all we will hear is the lapping of the water on the harbour," festival chiefs wrote on the event's official website, Vividlive.sydneyoperahouse.com.

The month-long festival is being curated by Reed and Anderson and takes place from May 27 to June 21.

It will also feature performances from the curators, as well as Rickie Lee Jones, Bardo Pond, Holly Miranda, My Brightest Diamond and Metric’s Emily Haines, who will be accompanied by a string quartet.
