Lou Reed died last October, but he was just awarded one last big concert payout — from a promoter who canceled one of the rocker’s final performances without warning.

Reed’s estate had filed suit against the promoters behind Miami’s U-R-1 Festival, demanding payment for a show that he was slated to play in December of 2012 — only to have the plug pulled at the last minute. A Manhattan judge awarded Reed’s widow Laurie Anderson the full $180,000 on Thursday after the promoters failed to show up for a hearing on the matter.

The promoters blamed the cancellation on money woes — which many insiders speculated were caused by the massive $1.5 million fee commanded by headliner Kanye West.
