Live shows at the OAT
From rock classics, operatic covers to Ibiza dance anthems – a mix of acts took to the stage across a three-night stint at the Open Air Theatre.
Welsh rock band Stereophonics thrilled the crowd at the North Bay venue last Thursday night as the theatre’s barnstorming summer season continues.
The band, who have notched up six number one albums, were preceded by support acts Atlantic Machine and the very impressive Circa Waves. Then, on a warm, balmy night, the Welshmen launched into a lengthy set of classic songs including Local Boy in the Photograph, I Wanna Get Lost With You, The Bartender and the Thief, Handbags and Gladrags, Just Looking, Maybe Tomorrow and Have a Nice Day.
A runway off the main stage meant the band could get closer to the audience, with drummer Jamie Morrison having a second drum kit on the end of the runway, used to full effect with a stunning drum solo on Mr and Mrs Smith, the penultimate encore.
And the closing song was the epic, anthemic Dakota, rounding off a great night for Scarborough.
Legendary DJ Pete Tong played a sensational concert with The Heritage Orchestra – bringing Ibiza Classics to Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Friday night.
Singer Becky Hill was a hit with the crowd, while the star DJ and his orchestra wowed the audience with covers of Insomnia by Faithless, Out of Space by Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers’ Galvanize.
