Lou Reed married his long term partner, Laurie Anderson, in a private ceremony in Colorado earlier this month, it’s been confirmed.
The couple tied the knot on April 12th but news of their marriage only became public as celebrations moved to New York this week.
Reed, formerly of Velvet Underground, and Anderson have been together since 1995, reports the Guardian.
Anderson, who is most famous for her performance art, has collaborated with Reed on a number of occasions, including, his 2003 concept project ‘The Raven’.
The couple’s private party, held at the home of photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, was attended by a number of cultural icons, including, actors Richard Belzer and Hal Willner.
