Indie rocker John Power will share the stories and songs of his colourful career on an intimate new tour which includes a stop at Scarborough Spa next year.

John will hit the road next spring, taking in small, intimate venues around the country on his Cast, The La’s and Me tour.

John had one of the best rock ’n’ roll apprenticeship ever – playing bass as an 18-year-old in The La’s – the band’s song There She Goes cited as a founding piece of Britpop foundations.

Forming Cast in 1991, he sang, wrote songs, and played guitar for one of Britpop’s pre-eminent bands – securing two platinum-selling records before returning to the charts in 2024 with the magnificent Love Is The Call.

His solo career produced some of his best work – and now it’s time to reflect on Britpop, the hits – Alright, Sandstorm, Finetime, Walkaway, Flying and more – in this intimate show that mixes John’s best-loved songs with wild, funny, and tender stories.

John said: “I'm really looking forward to these dates. It's been a long career, from the early days in The La's, to forming Cast, releasing two platinum records, and then continuing to the present with our last album Love Is The Call.

"This tour will be a chance to tell that story - through stories and songs - in intimate venues. It'll give fans the chance to get to know me - and me the chance to reflect on some of the most memorable moments of the past 38 years."

The 50-plus-date UK tour will kick-off in September and run through to December.
