In the final concert of his extensive UK solo tour - his first in 15 years - Cale plays the Royal Festival Hall. Cale is treating audiences to an overview of his career, as well as airing some new, unreleased tracks.
Royal Festival Hall, South Bank, London SE1 (0171-960 4242) to 21 Jan
IN A RECENT interview, Kiki Dee declared: "My name is the most famous thing about me." In one sense she is right: after her debut album, I'm Kiki Dee, she became the first white British act to be signed to Motown; however, her musical career drooped after the success of the Elton John duet, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart". Since then, she has performed in a number of West End musicals, earning a nomination for an Olivier Award for Blood Brothers. Where Rivers Meet is her first studio album in 12 years. Her national tour ends this month.
Riverside Studios, Hammersmith, London W6 (0181-237 1111) 15-17 Nov
