John Cale live in Jena
Fear Is A Man's Best Friend - John Cale

John Cale setlists 2003

Cale live in Dublin - 2003-06-20

Tour 2003

For the first time since 1996 Cale hits the road with a full backup band. The setlist was a mix of the familiar 'non-hits', a few surprises like Venus In Furs (on viola) and the return of Pablo Picasso, tracks from the 5 Tracks EP (with the notable exception of Chums of Dumpty) and the new HoboSapiens album.

Fear was performed as a spoken word piece on the first leg of this tour. Lament is a poem by Dylan Thomas.
