Cast play greatest hits set at London comeback show
Cast played in London last night (December 3) for the first time since 2001 for a comeback show celebrating the 15th anniversary of their debut album 'All Change'.

The original line up - frontman John Power, guitarist Liam 'Skin' Tyson, bassist Peter Wilkinson and drummer Keith O'Neill - played a greatest hits set at Shepherds Bush Empire.

Power told NME that he originally had reservations about reforming the band because he didn't want to ruin their legacy.

"That's what I was always scared of doing, becoming a parody of myself, I refused to go down that avenue," he said.

He added: "I don't know whether it's the amount of time that's passed, it being 15 years since our first album, but I was talking to people about it and there just seemed to be a lot of goodwill out there so I thought 'Why not'?"

The singer said the band were enjoying being back on the road again after nine years apart, and he was looking forward to playing a homecoming show in Liverpool next Thursday (December 9).

"I'm really excited about it all," he enthused. "I'm on top of my game and my voice is fucking miles better than it was. I feel like I can really do those songs justice now. It can only be a good thing for us to stand close together onstage and play them songs.

"I'm looking forward to playing back home too because I have steered clear of Liverpool for a while."

Cast played virtually the whole of their 1995 debut, including hit singles 'Alright', 'Sandstorm', 'Walkaway' and 'Finetime', during the show.

The four-piece also threw in a cover of The Who's 'The Seeker' which Power dedicated to the band, who are originally from the area.

Cast played:

'Back Of My Mind'
'Reflections'
'Sandstorm'
'Promised Land'
'Tell It Like It Is'
'Finetime'
'Four Walls'
'Magic Hour'
'Guiding Star'
'Alright'
'Live The Dream'
'Walkaway'
