The Script Announce 2022 Return to Scarborough Open Air Theatre
The Script have followed their career-spanning greatest hits collection Tales From The Script going straight to Number 1 on the Official UK Album Chart by announcing a new headline show on the Yorkshire coast.
Tales From The Script – the band’s sixth chart-topping album – celebrates everything the trio have achieved in their 14 years together.
Those celebrations will continue deep into 2022 when they embark upon a Greatest Hits Tour that now includes a must-see date at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Thursday July 14.
The show at Scarborough OAT – Britain’s biggest open air concert arena – is a welcome return to the Yorkshire coast for the band. The band headlined the venue in 2018 and their fans have been asking for them to return ever since.
Peter Taylor, Scarborough OAT’s venue programmer, said: “Every time we tease the fact we have a new show to announce at the venue we are literally bombarded by fans demanding we announce it is The Script. Well, today, we are absolutely delighted to announce this brilliant band are returning to Scarborough OAT next Summer. The last show here with Danny, Mark and Glen was a real highlight and we cannot wait to welcome them back.
Since arriving on the scene in 2008, The Script have sold more than 30 million records. They’ve also given us hits like ‘We Cry’, ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’, and ‘Superheroes’.
Tales From The Script topped the charts on its release last month. It followed in the footsteps of previous chart-topping albums such as The Script, Science & Faith and Sunsets & Full Moons.
On topping the chart again, frontman Danny O’Donoghue said: “We couldn’t have done this without The Script family. Thank you so much. This really, really means a lot because this is for our greatest hits, it’s like a lifetime of work. Hopefully you’ll see us on the road soon.”
The Script join a stellar line-up of headliners at Scarborough OAT in 2022. That includes Lionel Richie, Lewis Capaldi, Bryan Adams, and Simply Red.
Tickets for the Script go on general sale via scarboroughopenairtheatre.com at 9am on Friday December 3.
