Wednesday 24th May 2017 - The Beach Boys
The Beach Boys are heading to Scarborough for a special show in May 2017.
With a torrent of hit singles to their name, and tens of millions of albums, The Beach Boys changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been the band’s debt. Although their explosive debut was released over 50 years ago, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style, and few, if any, acts can match their concert presence, spirit and performance.
For this concert the line-up will be led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, with Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten.
Saturday 27th May 2017 - Kaiser Chiefs
Five indie pop kids from Leeds who in less than two years went from self-financing their first single to getting signed by Universal and becoming the darlings of the British music press. The infectious enthusiasm of their music and the unique viewpoint of their lyrics has seen them compared to Franz Ferdinand, Blur, The Clash, and Madness, but their passionately dedicated fans know that this band are true originals.
Friday 16th June 2017 - The Charlatans
The Charlatans are one of the most successful bands around, having had 3 Number one albums and numerous top 30 singles.

The band that never sold out and never considered nostalgia as a career path - they truly are one of the last great bands. Expect something truly special live.
