Indie-rockers Cast reschedule 25th anniversary tour - here's how to get tickets
Indie-rock stars Cast have announced rescheduled dates for their All Change 25th anniversary tour – including a show in Sheffield.
The Britpop legends are celebrating 25 years of their debut album All Change with a nationwide tour in early 2022, following a summer of festivals.
Originally released on October 16, 1995, it became the highest-selling debut album in the history of the Polydor label, featuring top-20 singles Finetime and Alright and top-10 hits Sandstorm and Walkaway.
Initially due to take place in 2020, the band have now announced new fixtures for the anniversary tour, which will see them playing across the UK, including Sheffield’s Foundry on January 20.
Power said: “The All Change album will always be special to me and the band, it was our debut album, it captured all the energy and all our hopes and it was packed to the hilt with great songs.
“We’ll be playing it in its entirety on the All Change tour.”
The line up will feature original trio John Power, on vocals, guitarist Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson and drummer Keith O’Neill, alongside Power’s long-time collaborative partner Jay Lewis, who took over on bass after Pete Wilkinson left the band in 2014.
The group will warm up for the tour with a range of dates across the UK this summer, including Holmfirth’s Picturedrome on August 26, the Stone Valley Midlands festival at Thoresby Park, near Worksop, on August 28, and Wentworth Festival, South Yorkshire, on September 18.

The announcement comes as Power releases a new solo track, Grounded Truth.
Featuring just Power, an acoustic guitar and subtle piano accompaniments, it allows the lyrics to take centre stage in a song about “looking within yourself to find universal truths as an antidote to all the noise we are subject to in our lives right now”.
Power said: “Enjoyment, thrills and experience are all part of growing up. You want it, are hungry for it and put yourself in a line of fire for it.
“To my younger self, I’d say I should have taken my foot off the pedal a bit. It’s funny how life passes by while you’re living it.”
Power has some solo dates lined up this autumn/winter, including Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms on October 7.
