CULT indie band James have announced an outdoor show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre this summer.

The Manchester indie rockers will play at the open-air arena on Thursday September 9.

They are best known for their hits such as Sit Down and She’s A Star and last headlined the Scarborough venue in 2018 following their debut 2015 gig.

Bassist Jim Glennie said: “We always have a great night there – even back in the days when you had to cross the old moat to get to the audience.

"We are looking forward to another very special night on the Yorkshire coast.”

Scarborough OAT venue programmer Peter Taylor said: “We are absolutely delighted James are returning to Scarborough OAT this summer.

“They continue to be one of the UK’s most relevant and influential bands – pioneers of the Manchester music scene since the 1980s – and a must-see live act."

Tickets to the September gig go on sale at 9am Friday April 23 via
