Cast are due to perform between 10.30-11.45pm, with a set list that will include all of their chart hits.

As previously reported by NME.COM, Cast, who hope to embark on a UK tour in the early part of next year, will also release their new album in 2001. The band have been recording it in a studio just outside Liverpool with producer John Leckie. Frontman John Power has described the record as “hop and roll.”
