Singer Elaine Paige will return to Scarborough as part of her Stripped Back tour on Sunday November 20.

The show will see her perform her favourite tracks, from an array of contemporary songwriters, with a small group of musicians.

This follows Elaine’s last solo tour in 2014 which was a sell-out celebratory concert encompassing her incredible 50 year career and saw her say “farewell” to a full touring schedule.

Elaine said: “I’m so excited about this series of ‘weekend’ concerts. Having made the decision not to do a back to back tour again, this appealed to me not only because of the schedule, but as I’ve marked my 50 years on stage, this is going to allow me to do something completely different, a brand new show celebrating the contemporary songwriters I love such as Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Leonard Cohen, Sting, Elton John, Lennon & McCartney ... the list goes on.

“Their music has been the soundtrack to all our lives, not just mine. And it’s the ideal opportunity to perform in an intimate way/ I recently played the Royal Albert Hall with the 60-piece BBC Concert Orchestra ... I’m doing these new shows Stripped Back.”

Elaine has performed live in concert all over the world and as a recording artist has worked with legendary producers such as Tony Visconti, Dennis Lambert, Peter Matz, and Phil Ramone amongst others and has released 22 solo albums, been featured on seven cast recordings and has had major worldwide hits with songs such as Memory and I Know Him So Well.

As a musical theatre performer Elaine has made a major contribution to the modern musical. She has starred in more smash hit West End and Broadway musicals than anyone else of her generation and continues to present the weekly BBC Radio 2 show Elaine Paige on Sunday, which is devoted to theatre and film music.
