2016 BRIT Award winner James Bay is to headline Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Thursday July 12th 2016, on what promises to be a night to remember this summer on Yorkshire's beautiful coast.

James burst onto the music scene in late 2014, with the smash hit Hold Back The River. His debut album, Chaos and the Calm, entered the charts at No.1 in March 2015, and was in the top 20 for a staggering 40 weeks, selling over two million copies around the world. Known as one of the most captivating and in-demand live acts arounds, James was crowned Best British Male at the 2016 BRIT Awards, and was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Best New Act.

His Scarborough OAT gig is being organised by promoters Cuffe and Taylor. Director Peter Taylor stated: "We are delighted to announce James Bay is coming to Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

James is without a doubt one of the most in-demand artists around. He is one of the biggest breakthrough artists for the last few years, proven by his stunning number one album, international critical acclaim, and many, many award accolades.

He performed a wonderful set at last year's Glastonbury Festival, and he has sold out shows across Europe, as well as two tours in the US; so this is going to be a gig no-one will want to miss."

James - whose hits include Let It Go, Hold Back The River, Scars and Best Fake Smile, has collaborated live with such luminaries as Ronnie Wood, Ed Sheeran and Jack Garrett, and performed alongside Justin Bieber at this year's BRIT Awards.
