Crowded House Bring Tour To Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Summer 2021

Crowded House 2020

By Steve Crabtree

Crowded House are heading out on their first European tour in more than 10 years. And it is coming to the Yorkshire coast next summer.

The New Zealand rock band behind such legendary hits ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and ‘Weather With You’ will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Tuesday, June 8. And tickets go on general sale via at 9am on Friday December 11.

The Yorkshire coast date will be the first UK show on the tour. It’ll then move on to Glasgow, Birmingham, Cardiff and London. And that’ll be followed up by a series of iconic venues across Europe.

Scarborough OAT 2021

“One of the most influential bands of the last 40 years”

Joining founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour on stage at Scarborough OAT will be Mitchell Froom, Liam Finn and Elroy Finn.

Crowded House also released their first new music in 10 years recently. New single ‘Whatever You Want’ arrived with a brilliant video, directed by Nina Ljeti. Watch it here.

The band also began recording a new studio album in Los Angeles in January. And from March, as the Covid-19 lockdown hit, they had to exchange new songs via online files. Fans can expect to hear the fruits of these lockdown labours – the eagerly-awaited album Dreamers Are Waiting which is set to be released early next year ahead of the European Tour.

Scarborough OAT venue programmer Peter Taylor said: “When we learned Crowded House were touring Europe we just knew we had to try and bring them to Scarborough OAT. This is a real coup for the venue and the Yorkshire coast.

“Crowded House are regarded as one of the most influential bands of the last 40 years. And their fans are utterly devoted. This will be an incredible show.”

Crowded House join Lewis Capaldi, UB40, Duran Duran, Snow Patrol, Lionel Richie, Nile Rodgers and CHIC and Olly Murs among the headliners at Scarborough OAT next summer.
