Rock legends Status Quo are heading back to the Yorkshire coast next summer for a headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

The show on Sunday June 2 will be the fourth time Francis Rossi and the band have headlined the UK’s largest purpose-built open air concert arena.

Quo will be joined on the night by special guests The Alarm. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday October 13 via

Status Quo are the first headliners to be announced for Scarborough OAT’s 2024 season – following this summer’s record breaking series of shows.

More than 100,000 music fans attended shows at the venue from the likes of Pulp, Rag’n’Bone Man, Sting, Tom Grennan, Hollywood Vampires and a five-night run of hit musical MAMMA MIA!

Status Quo, who headlined Scarborough OAT in 2013, 2014 and 2016, have sold more than 118 million records and spent more than 500 weeks on the UK Album Chart since forming in the 1960s.

Led by founder Francis Rossi, Quo have recorded 64 British hit singles – more than any other band – including such classics as Caroline, Pictures of Matchstick Men, Down, The Wanderer and Rockin’ All Over the World.

The Scarborough show is among their first in the UK since their widely acclaimed ‘Out Out Quoing’ European Arena Tour in December 2022 which included a huge Wembley show.

Francis Rossi is currently touring the UK with his one man ‘Tunes & Chat’ show which hits Scarborough Spa this Sunday (October 8).
