Wet Wet Wet frontman Marti Pellow says the legendary chart-topping pop band cannot wait to head to Scarborough this summer.

The Glasgow boys – one of the most successful bands in British pop history – will play at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Saturday July 30, 2016.

Tickets go on general sale at 9am Friday May 6 and are available from www.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com or www.ticketmaster.co.uk

Marti Pellow said: “We’re delighted to be added to the line-up of concerts taking place at the Open Air Theatre this year.

“It will be the first time we’ve ever played in Scarborough and we’re really looking forward to it.”

Wet Wet Wet – Graeme Clark, Tommy Cunningham, Neil Mitchell and Marti Pellow – have sold in excess of 15 million singles and albums to date and have featured in the UK official singles and album charts for an immense 510 weeks.

The Scarborough OAT gig is being organised by promoters Cuffe and Taylor.

Director Peter Taylor said: “Wet Wet Wet are one of the most successful British pop bands of all time. Their songs form the soundtrack to many people’s formative years and beyond, and they sound as fresh and as vibrant today as they ever have.

“They are not only a veritable jukebox of classic pop hits which everyone knows, but they are an incredible live act which was proved once again on their fantastic recent UK tour.

“We cannot wait to welcome the boys to Scarborough on 30th July. This is shaping up to be a wonderful summer of live music on the Yorkshire coast.”

Bursting onto the scene in 1987, Wet Wet Wet, whose hits include, Goodnight Girl, Sweet Little Mystery, With A Little Help From My Friends and the massive Love Is All Around (which topped the charts for an incredible 15 weeks) have played to more than four million people in over 25 countries around the world.

Their recent Big Picture tour was a critical and commercial smash with packed venues across the UK with both audiences and reviewers giving the shows five star ratings.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday May 6 from www.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com or in person from the Scarborough Open Air Theatre Box Office. Tickets are also available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk
