Scarborough's Open Air Theatre has announced new dates for five rescheduled headline acts.

The coronavirus pandemic had threatened to cancel shows this summer at the Open Air Theatre, but as restrictions begin to ease rescheduled dates have now been announced.

Keane will now play on Saturday August 21, 2021; Snow Patrol's show has moved to Friday September 10, 2021; and Duran Duran's gig has moved to Friday September 17, 2021.

Two acts will no longer play at the venue this summer, but will instead return in 2022.
