The last time the Velvet Underground multi-instrumentalist hit the road this side of the pond was for his ‘Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood’ European tour back in October 2012.

The Welsh musician’s tour will begin in Liverpool at the Royal Philharmonic Hall on July 15, before calling at Whitley Bay, York, Bexhill, Cambridge and the London Palladium, before closing out the run at Birmingham Town Hall on July 25.

According to a press release, Cale will “perform songs from throughout his career, which is now in its sixth decade, and has earned him an international reputation as a musical pioneer”.

“TOUR News! Hello UK I’m heading your way in July! My first extended run of UK dates in several year,” Cale said, sharing the dates on Twitter.
