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.
Thursday 29th June 2017 - Cliff Richard
To celebrate the release of his incredible new album. 'Just…Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll', the UK’s most successful hit-maker, Cliff Richard, will be heading out on a summer tour of the UK’s most beautiful castles and historic locations in 2017 for a series of fully seated outdoor concerts in fabulous intimate arenas, built especially for Cliff Richard and his fans.
Cliff has returned to his roots to record an album of his favourite songs from the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll. These include Cliff’s renditions of seminal tracks such as Roll Over Beethoven, Great Balls of Fire, Sweet Little Sixteen and his very own debut single, Move It. The album also features a duet with fellow idol Elvis Presley on Blue Suede Shoes. This has been a career long dream of Cliff’s, which now becomes reality. The new release follows the huge success of his last studio album, ‘The Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll Songbook’ in 2013, and the celebratory ’75 at 75 – 75 Career Spanning Hits’ in 2015.
Cliff released his debut single Move It in August 1958. It is credited with being the first British rock ‘n’ roll hit, bringing what had previously been an American genre across the Atlantic, for the first time. ‘Just… Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll’ will, astonishingly, be his 102nd album.
The ‘Just Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll Tour’ will travel up and down the country through June and July 2017.
Friday 30th June 2017 - UB40 feat Ali, Astro and Mickey
UB40 are delighted to announce their UK Grandslam Tour for summer 2017. The band - featuring original members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue - will be bringing their inimitable blend of reggae and pop greatest hits to the forefront of the British summer events calendar.
Sunday 9th July 2017 - Olly Murs
Olly Murs was the runner-up of The X Factor in 2009. The loveable Essex boy found his own style and sound, while proving the critics wrong by going straight to no.1 with his debut single, the reggae-tinged 'Please Don't Let Me Go' and later scored a further three more no.1s along with three no.1 albums.
His career has gone from strength to strength, playing stadiums supporting Robbie Williams, hitting the US leg of the One Direction tour and turning from pop star to TV presenter by co-hosting 2015's series of The X Factor. The cheeky chappie has certainly found himself at the right place, right time.
