POP icons Westlife are coming to Scarborough next year for an exclusive show.

Shane, Mark, Kian and Nicky will play at the town's open air theatre on Tuesday, August 17, and will be the group’s only outdoor performance in the North of England next summer.

“Some exciting news, We are delighted to announce that Scarborough Open Air Theatre have invited us to join next year’s line-up on Tuesday, August 17," said the band.

“Given the current circumstances, we really are hopeful to announce more shows in the new year and look forward to being back with you all as soon as we can. In the meantime, tickets for this one-off show will go on sale on Friday, October 30.”

Westlife will perform many of their hits, including Swear It Again, Flying Without Wings, Unbreakable, When You’re Looking Like That and World of our Own.

Scarborough OAT venue programmer Peter Taylor said: “Westlife fans were heartbroken when this summer’s tour was postponed due to the global pandemic so we are delighted the boys will be coming to Scarborough OAT next summer.

“This is a real exclusive - Westlife’s only outdoor show in the North of England and four days before their headline show at Wembley. It’s going to be a brilliant night here.”
