NEWS: John Cale reschedules UK tour and adds Edinburgh date

John Cale has announced the rescheduling of his upcoming UK tour – his first extended run of UK dates for over a decade – until October / November 2022. The Welsh multi-instrumentalist has also added an Edinburgh date at Queens Hall where the tour will begin on October 23rd. Tickets for all the original shows remain valid.

Now in the 6th decade of his career, Cale will perform tracks from his huge archive on the tour. Revered as a pioneer for his work as an avant garde musician, He formed The Velvet Underground with Lou Reed in 1965 and was a driving force in a band that went on to be one of the most influential in Rock n’Roll history. The two albums created with Cale before he left the group in 1968, The Velvet Underground & Nico and White Light/White Heat, are often cited as the birth of alternative rock.

As a solo artist he has released 16 studio albums, which highlight his immense talent as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. His critically hailed Paris 1919 album celebrates it’s 50th anniversary next year.

Cale has also worked throughout his career as a producer as well as collaborating with the likes of Brian Eno, The Stooges, Patti Smith, Happy Mondays and Siouxsie and the Banshees. He’s  kept his hand in Welsh music culture over the years too, by working with both Manic Street Preachers and Super Furry Animals.
