Two of Radio X’s favourite bands are set to rock the Yorkshire coast this summer, with what promises to be a pair of unforgettable nights at Scarborough Open Air Theatre. Yorkshire’s favourite sons Kaiser Chiefs are “Coming Home” for what promises to be a special night on Saturday 27 May.

Fresh from their first UK arena tour in two years, the multiple BRIT Award-winning and platinum-selling band will headline Europe's largest open air theatre.

Frontman Ricky Wilson says: “As everyone knows we are proud Yorkshire lads and so we can’t wait to head to the beautiful Scarborough seaside for what we know is going to be an amazing gig.

“There is something truly special about playing in front of a Yorkshire audience. We know the crowd and the setting of the Open Air Theatre will make for a brilliant atmosphere and a real night to remember.”

Meanwhile, The Charlatans headline the amazing venue on Friday 16 June. For more than 25 years, the band have been an inspirational force in British music, chalking up 22 Top 40 singles and three number one albums.

Lead singer Tim Burgess said: “We have played some truly memorable gigs in Yorkshire down the years and we expect another unforgettable night in Scarborough next summer.

“Yorkshire crowds have always been among our warmest and loudest supporters and we cannot wait to play for them again.”

The band’s 12th studio album Modern Nature received sensational reviews, some critics citing it as their best-ever. They have toured the album around the globe to sold out audiences since its release in 2015.
