Bastille are heading to Scarborough.

The award winning band behind anthems such as 'Pompeii', 'Good Grief', 'Laura Palmer' and 'Things We Lost In The Fire,' will play the Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Saturday 28 July. 

The band’s chart-conquering debut album ‘Bad Blood’ sold more than four million copies alongside 11 million singles.

In the UK, the twice Number One album was certified double-platinum and earned Bastille the British Breakthrough award at the 2014 Brits, along with two Grammy nominations.

The 2016 follow up ‘Wild World’ – spearheaded by single, ‘Good Grief’ – topped the UK album charts and hit Top 5 in the US. Featuring the singles ‘Send Them Off!’ ‘Blame’ and ‘Glory’ it was a hit with fans and critics alike and saw them scoop NME Album Of The Year.

Together with a series of sold out arena tours and major festival appearances, Bastille have also collaborated with acts like Haim, Kate Tempest and Angel Haze, and Dan co-founded and co-runs an indie label, Best Laid Plans, helping to develop acts like Rag ’N’ Bone Man and Rationale.

Director of promoters Cuffe and Taylor, Peter Taylor, said:

“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 to Scarborough Open Air Theatre for what we will be an unforgettable night.”

Bastille join a stellar 2018 line-up at Scarborough OAT that includes Britney Spears, Lionel Richie, Il Divo, Gary Barlow, The Script, Steps and Alfie Boe.
