Veteran rocker Lou Reed was so riled by abusive fans during a show in Los Angeles his tai chi teacher had to come on stage and calm him down.

Former Velvet Underground frontman Lou, 61, was performing at the WILTERN THEATRE when hecklers started hurling abuse at him - and the fiery singer demanded they be ejected from the auditorium.

Witness Chris Walker reports, "His teacher had to jump on stage to enact aggression-sapping exercises.

"It's the sort of thing Reed has been doing for all his life but this time security guards actually pulled the offensive fans out of the joint."
