Le Bataclan '72 is a fourteen-track live album by Lou Reed, John Cale and Nico. It was recorded from the soundboard and heavily bootlegged over the years, before it gained an official release in 2004.

This is the legendary show recorded at the Bataclan club in Paris, on January 29 1972. The concert marked the first time since the break up of The Velvet Underground that Reed, Cale and Nico were on stage together.

The actual track list of this celebrated bootleg is:

1. Waiting for the man
2. Berlin
3. Black Angel's death song
4. Wild Child
5. Heroin
6. Ghost story
7. The biggest, loudest, hairiest group of all
8. Empty bottles
9. Femme fatale
10. No one is there
11. Frozen warnings
12. Janitor of lunacy
13. I'll be your mirror
14. All tomorrow's parties

The official release includes two exclusive bonus tracks (both rehearsals—"Pale Blue Eyes" and "Candy Says").
