Years & Years are coming to Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

The chart-topping electro-pop group – fronted by Yorkshire-born singer Olly Alexander – will play the UK’s biggest open-air arena on Thursday, July 18.

Years & Years – Olly Alexander, Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Türkmen – are famed for their electrifying live shows. They are the reigning ‘GQ Live Act of The Year’ and have built a massive fanbase around the globe.

It’s been a brilliant start to 2019 for the band. Recent single ‘Play’ with Jax Jones went Top 10 in the UK alongside a nomination for Best British Band at this year’s BRIT Awards

Their Scarborough Open Air Theatre gig is presented by Cuffe and Taylor. Director Peter Taylor said: “Years & Years are quite simply one of the most exciting live acts around and we are beyond delighted to be bringing them to Scarborough OAT this summer.

“The band – who are fronted by Olly Alexander who, of course, hails from just down the road in Harrogate – have released hit after hit over the last few years.

“They’ve become the soundtrack to many music fans’ lives and for me, and I’m sure many other people, this is going to be one of the highlights of the summer here on the Yorkshire coast.”

Years & Years join a stellar line-up at Scarborough OAT this summer with shows by Kylie, Hacienda Classical, Madness, Cliff Richard and two dates by Lewis Capaldi already announced.
