Crowded House are heading out on their first European tour in more than 10 years – and it is coming to the Yorkshire coast next summer.
The Australian rock band behind such legendary hits Don’t Dream It’s Over and Weather With You will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Tuesday June 8.
The Yorkshire coast date will be the first UK show on the tour which also hits Glasgow, Birmingham, Cardiff and London, together with a series of iconic venues across Europe.
Joining founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour on stage at Scarborough OAT will be Mitchell Froom, Liam Finn and Elroy Finn.
Crowded House recently released their first new music in 10 years. New single Whatever You Want arrived with a brilliant video, directed by Nina Ljeti and starring Mac DeMarco.
Also joining them are Yorkshire’s very own Kaiser Chiefs are heading to the coast next summer for what promises to be a stunning headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.
The Leeds indie heroes will bring their no-holds-barred rock ‘n’ roll celebration to the UK’s largest open-air arena on Sunday July 11.
Next summer’s Scarborough show will be a much-requested return to the venue for Kaiser Chiefs. The multi-award-winning band played an explosive show at Scarborough OAT back in 2017 – and fans have been asking for them to return ever since.
Kaiser Chiefs frontman and national treasure Ricky Wilson said: “We cannot wait to get back to playing live shows again and it will be great to return to this stunning Yorkshire venue. We had a cracking night there in 2017 so roll on July 11!”
Sixteen years into an incredible career, they have truly made their mark on the British music scene with such anthemic hits as Oh My God, I Predict A Riot, Everyday I Love You Less and Less, Ruby, Never Miss A Beat and Hole In My Soul.
And the great news is there is absolutely no sign of them slowing down!
