The Courteeners Announce Surprise Scarborough Show

If you are one of the thousands of fans who were unable to get a ticket for the Old Trafford Courteeners gig in September there is some good news.

The band have announced a gig at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Wednesday 8 September with support band The Coral.

The hometown Manchester Old Trafford cricket stadium show sold out in 90 minutes.

Promoter Peter Taylor said:
“This is amazing news for Courteeners fans and Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

“I’ve always wanted to bring this brilliant band here, so to be able to present this exclusive warm-up show ahead of their headline spot at TRNSMT and their massive hometown show in Manchester is just fantastic.

“Courteeners sold 50,000 tickets for their Manchester show in just 90 minutes so fans will have to be quick here because the Scarborough show will sell-out fast!”

Courteeners released their critically acclaimed seventh Top 10 studio album ‘More. Again. Forever’ early last year.

The band, who have been friends since childhood, have grown into one of the UK’s premier guitar bands delivering such era-defining anthems as ‘Not Nineteen Forever’, ‘Are You In Love With A Notion’, ‘How Good It Was’, ‘The 17th’ and last year's ‘Hanging Off Your Cloud’.

In 2019, they sold out their own 50,000 capacity show at Heaton Park in Manchester and headlined a number of major festivals across the country.

Tickets will go on general sale at 9am on Friday June 25 via
