Watch Arctic Monkeys Cover Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side” In Liverpool

By Scott Lapatine / October 28, 2013

Today we posted Lou Reed covers from Pearl Jam, Twin Shadow, and My Morning Jacket with Neil Young, Elvis Costello, and Jenny Lewis. You can now add Arctic Monkeys to that list. The band kicked off tonight’s encore at Liverpool’s Echo Arena with a cover of “Walk On The Wild Side,” Reed’s lone Billboard Hot 100 single. Watch a fan-shot video below.

In the wake of Reed’s death, “Wild Side” is climbing the charts again — it’s #34 on iTunes’ singles chart at the time of this post.
