Here comes the summer sum....and Texas!
Chart topping rock band Texas will play a headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre this summer.

Released in May 2017, and bursting with great songs influenced by Northern Soul, Disco, seminal British groups like the Bee-Gees and Orange Juice, it became the band’s sixth UK Top 10 album.
Singles ‘Let's Work It Out’ and ‘Tell that Girl’ were major radio hits and Texas played a string of scintillating live shows.
The new songs sit brilliantly alongside the band’s massive hits that include ‘I Don't Want A Lover’, ‘Say What You Want’, ‘Halo’, ‘Summer Sun’. ‘Getaway’ and ‘Black Eyed Boy’.
Known for their compelling live sound, this will be a not-to-be-missed show at Scarborough OAT, presented by Cuffe and Taylor. Director Peter Taylor said: “Texas have produced hit after hit over the last four decades and remain a must-see live band.
“Their latest album is up there with their best work and we are delighted to be bringing them here to this wonderful venue.”
