VIDEO: Lou Reed & Metallica perform on Italian TV

Lou Reed & Metallica continue their European promo tour for “Lulu” with an appearance on Italian TV over the weekend.

The guys performed a couple of tracks, and did a short interview, on the Italian TV show "Che Tempo Che Fa" on RAI 3 Sunday.

Loutallica did live versions of “Iced Honey” and the Velvet Underground track “White Light/White Heat.”

The Italian visit is the latest stop on the promo trail, following a UK appearance on Later With Jools Holland (see that here and part 2 here), and a German radio broadcast/webcast in Cologne last Friday (see that here).

“Lulu” is stiffing in America, where it sold a mere 13,000 copies in its first week; to put that in perspective, Metallica’s last studio album, “Death Magnetic,” sold 490,000 in just its first three days back in 2008.
