John Cale

Musician, songwriter, producer and Velvet Underground co-founder John Cale comes to Roxy in support of his latest album on Thursday, February 28th.

The songwriting legend and a primary creative force behind legendary rock band Velvet Underground, Cale embarks on a tour in support of his most recent album released earlier in 2012, Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood.

Cale has brought an avant-garde ear to rock’n’roll ever since he founded the Velvet Underground with Lou Reed in 1966. After two Velvets albums Cale left in 1968 for a solo career. In the early '70s he worked as an A&R man for Warner Bros. and Elektra, and as a consultant for Columbia, remixing albums by Barbra Streisand and Paul Revere and the Raiders in quadrophonic sound.

By the next decade Cale had established himself as a producer/collaborator on some 80 albums, ranging from the debut efforts of Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Patti Smith, Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers, and Squeeze to four albums by former Velvets singer Nico; he’s also worked with Brian Eno, Kevin Ayers, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Nick Drake, and Mike Heron and scored soundtracks for Andy Warhol's Heat and Roger Corman's Caged Heat.

He continued to record regularly well into the new millennium, releasing a pair of well-received studio albums, HoboSapiens (2003) and Black Acetate (2005). The Extra Playful EP arrived in 2011, followed in 2012 by a well-deserved career overview, Conflict & Catalysis: Productions & Arrangements 1966-2006, and a new studio album, Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood.


Advance tickets are available through Ticketportal and Ticketpro for 700 CZK.
