To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the classic album 'All Change', Liverpool band Cast have announced they will unite with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra for a special live performance on Saturday 5th December 2015 at the historic Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
Originally released in 1995 following John Power's song writing experiments with The La's, the multi-platinum debut album spent more than a year in the charts and found its way into the hearts of millions. 20 years later and hits like Finetime and Alright have become classic anthems, lead guitarist Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson now also plays with the legendary Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin) and this unique celebration of Cast's music, combining their energy and formidable live performance with the oldest surviving symphony orchestra in the UK, is a unique chance to hear all the hits like never before.
Expect to hear Walkaway, the emotional soundtrack to Euro '96 and Cast's first single featuring string arrangements, alongside many others from their vast back catalogue of hits and album tracks including Flying, Guiding Star and the David Arnold (James Bond soundtrack composer) arranged 'Magic Hour'.
John Power comments on playing the hits: “When I’m singing some of the classic hits everything all goes a bit slow motion, the audience is getting on them and we're getting on them, something is happening. They’ve reached that point now where they feel ageless, and that a connection with part of me and part of you and a part of us all that is ageless doesn’t get older and has always been, and it's a reaffirming sort of place to be.”
The 20th anniversary will be a unique chance to hear the now classic songs and album tracks alongside original and new orchestral arrangements by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. It's almost worth waiting 20 years for.
