Courteeners to headline Scarborough OAT

Monday, 21 June 2021

Courteeners will warm up for two massive early autumn gigs with an exclusive headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Wednesday 8 September, with special guests, The Coral.

Tickets will go on general sale at 9am, Friday 25 June via

This unmissable Scarborough date comes ahead of Courteeners’ headline gig at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival and a huge hometown show at Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford cricket stadium, which sold out in just ninety minutes.

The 8,000-capacity Scarborough Open Air Theatre show is presented by Cuffe and Taylor. Promoter Peter Taylor said:

"This is amazing news for Courteeners' fans and Scarborough OAT.

"I’ve always wanted to bring this brilliant band here, so to be able to present this exclusive warm-up show ahead of their headline spot at TRNSMT and their massive hometown show in Manchester is just fantastic.

"Courteeners sold 50,000 tickets for their Manchester show in just ninety minutes so fans will have to be quick here because the Scarborough show will sell-out fast!"

Courteeners released their critically acclaimed seventh Top 10 studio album ‘More. Again. Forever’ early last year. 

The band, who have been friends since childhood, have grown into one of the UK’s premier guitar bands delivering such era-defining anthems as ‘Not Nineteen Forever’, ‘Are You In Love With A Notion’, ‘How Good It Was’, ‘The 17th’ and last year's ‘Hanging Off Your Cloud’.

In 2019, they sold out their own 50,000 capacity show at Heaton Park in Manchester and headlined a number of major festivals across the country.
