By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

Courteeners will warm up for two massive summer gigs with an exclusive headline show on the Yorkshire coast.

The band are today delighted to confirm they will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Wednesday September 8. Special guests on the day are The Coral.

Tickets will go on general sale at 9am on Friday June 25 via scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

This unmissable Scarborough date comes ahead of Courteeners’ headline gig at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival and a huge hometown show at Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford cricket stadium – which sold out in just 90 minutes.

The 8,000-capacity Scarborough Open Air Theatre show is presented by Cuffe and Taylor. Promoter Peter Taylor said: “This is amazing news for Courteeners fans and Scarborough OAT.

“I’ve always wanted to bring this brilliant band here, so to be able to present this exclusive warm-up show ahead of their headline spot at TRNSMT and their massive hometown show in Manchester is just fantastic.

“Courteeners sold 50,000 tickets for their Manchester show in just 90 minutes so fans will have to be quick here because the Scarborough show will sell-out fast!”

Courteeners released their critically acclaimed seventh Top 10 studio album ‘More. Again. Forever’ early last year.

The band, who have been friends since childhood, have grown into one of the UK’s premier guitar bands delivering such era-defining anthems as ‘Not Nineteen Forever’, ‘Are You In Love With A Notion’, ‘How Good It Was’, ‘The 17thand last year’s ‘Hanging Off Your Cloud’.

In 2019, they sold out their own 50,000 capacity show at Heaton Park in Manchester and headlined a number of major festivals across the country.

Hailed by musical legend Jools Holland as “an extraordinary young talent” and global icon Tom Jones comparing him to Little Richard, Tom is already a huge hit at both home and internationally enjoying regular sell-out shows at London’s legendary Ronnie Scott’s as well as the world-famous Birdland Jazz Club in New York City and the prestigious Dubai Opera House.

Speaking about the tour, Tom said: “We are going to have fun! I’m absolutely thrilled to have my first UK theatre tour and I can’t wait to get started.

 “This show is all about feeling good. We’ll have great music interspersed with some good old gossip but most of all I want to see smiles on people’s faces as they enjoy a brilliant night of live entertainment.”

Tom will be joined on tour by his band who have worked with musicians including Ruby Turner, Bruno Mars, The Who, Mica Paris and Chaka Khan to name a few.
