“Yorkshire crowds have always been among our warmest and loudest supporters and we cannot wait to play for them again.”

The Charlatans – Tim Burgess, Mark Collins, Martin Blunt and Tony Rogers – remain one of the most explosive live acts.

Their back catalogue is a non-stop jukebox of indie rock’s greatest hits including the unmistakable sound and swagger of The Only One I Know, Weirdo, Just When You're Thinkin' Things Over, One to Another, How High, North Country Boyand 2015’s stunning Come Home Baby.

The band’s 12th studio album Modern Nature received sensational reviews, some critics citing it as their best-ever. They have toured the album around the globe to sold out audiences since its release in 2015.

The Scarborough OAT concert is presented by promoters Cuffe and Taylor. Promoter Joel Levack said: “The Charlatans are one of the biggest bands to have come from the UK in the last 25 years. They have written the soundtrack to so many indie fans’ lives and we cannot wait for them to take to the stage at Scarborough.

“This is another fantastic night of live music heading to the Yorkshire coast in 2017.”

The Charlatans join Olly Murs, Cliff Richard, The Beach Boys and UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey Virtue among the star-studded headliners already announced at Scarborough OAT for 2017.
