Music legends Blondie are heading to the Yorkshire coast for what promises to be a sensational night at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame icons – whose chart-topping and era-defining career has seen them sell more than 40 million albums worldwide – play the UK’s largest outdoor concert arena on Thursday June 22. Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday December 2 via scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

Peter Taylor, venue programmer at Scarborough OAT, said: “We absolutely love to bring true music legends here to Scarborough OAT – and are doing it again!”

On securing Blondie for their Summer programme, Taylor said:

“For the last four decades, Blondie has become and remain a true global icon – one whose influence both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion and art. Their live shows continue to be incredible and it is going to be a truly magical moment when they walk on stage here at Scarborough OAT and deliver a night no music fan will want to miss.”

Blondie join fellow music legends Sting, Pulp, rock supergroup Hollywood Vampires, chart-toppers N-Dubz, Olly Murs and the International Tour of MAMMA MIA! among Scarborough Open Air Theatre’s 2023 headliners – with many more still to be announced.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
