Britpop legends Cast are set to appear in Belfast as part of their upcoming greatest hit tour.

The band will play the Limelight on Friday, November 23 with tickets going on sale this Friday.

Originally formed in 1992, the band was made up of members of The La’s and Shack.

The band released four albums, with the second 'Mother Nature Calls' going platinum, and three of the albums making it into the top 10.

They also had 10 top 10 singles before disbanding in 2001.

After the band’s split, John Power released three solo albums, and played intermittently with the reformed La’s.

At the end of 2015 Cast celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic album 'All Change’, with two sold out shows at the historic Liverpool Philharmonic Hall where they played the record in it’s entirety accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

The bands Latest album 'Kicking Up The Dust’ was released on 21st April 2017. The album, Cast's sixth studio album, was recorded at The Motor Museum in Liverpool and was produced by resident studio legend - Alistair Groves.

Cast are set to release two new ‘vinyl’ only packages in November 2018.
