SOUTH Londoners Bastille are the latest addition to the Scarborough Open Air Theatre summer season of concerts.

Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow for their July 28 show at Europe's largest outdoor theatre and will be available from and, on 01723 818111 and 01723 383636, or in person from the box office in Burniston Road or the Discover Yorkshire Coast Tourism Bureau in Scarborough Town Hall.

Seven years since Dan Smith started Bastille alone in his London, he will be touring with drummer Chris Wood, guitarist Will Farquarson and keyboards player Kyle Simmons, performing such hits as Pompeii, Good Grief, Laura Palmer and Things We Lost In The Fire.

Bastille's debut album, Bad Blood, sold more than four million copies alongside 11 million singles, twice rising to number one en route to double platinum status and earning the band the British Breakthrough award at the 2014 Brits, along with two Grammy nominations.

Spearheaded by the single Good Grief, the 2016 follow-up, Wild World, topped the British album charts and made the top five in the United States. After releasing further singles Send Them Off!, Blame and Glory, Bastille scooped the NME Album of the Year award.

The band have collaborated with Haim, Kate Tempest and Angel Haze, while Smith has co-founded the indie label Best Laid Plans, helping to develop acts such as Rag’N’Bone Man and Rationale.

Bastille’s Scarborough show will be presented by Cuffe and Taylor, whose co-director Peter Taylor, says: "Bastille are quite simply one of the most critically acclaimed and successful British bands of the last decade. Their anthemic sound is unmistakable and has won them legions of fans around the world. It goes without saying we cannot wait to bring them here for what we will be an unforgettable night."
