BRIT Award winner James Morrison is to join chart-toppers The Script for their massive outdoor show on the Yorkshire coast this summer.
James has just completed a hugely successful UK Tour and will be The Script’s very special guest when the Irish rock trio take to the stage at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Thursday July 14.
James’ recent ‘Greatest Hits Tour’ was a life-affirming celebration of a remarkable career that has produced such unforgettable Top 10 hits as ‘You Give Me Something’, ‘Wonderful World’, ‘You Make It Real’, ‘Broken Strings’ and ‘I Won’t Let You Go’.
The Script are currently on the road with their own Greatest Hits Tour – which includes huge shows at The O2 in London and two homecoming performances at Dublin’s 3 Arena.
The tour follows the release of their career-spanning hits collection Tales From The Script which went straight to Number 1on the Official UK Album Chart – the band’s sixth chart-topping album.
And those celebrations continue long into 2022 – including their must-see date at Scarborough OAT with James Morrison.
Peter Taylor, Scarborough OAT’s venue programmer, said: “We are delighted that not only will we welcome The Script back here as headliners but we can now add the brilliant James Morrison to the bill as a very special guest. This is going to be an incredible night no fan will want to miss.”
The Scarborough OAT show coincides with the 16th anniversary of the release of James’s debut album ‘Undiscovered’. Featuring his breakthrough smash hits ‘You Give Me Something’ and ‘Wonderful World’, the album became one of the biggest of the decade, reaching 5x Platinum status in recognition of 1.5 million domestic sales. The following year he won the BRIT Award for British Male Solo Artist, an accolade he has been nominated for on another two occasions.
Morrison is also a songwriter for other artists, having written for the likes of Demi Lovato, Olly Murs and Kelly Clarkson.
Since arriving on the scene in 2008, The Script have sold more than 30 million records and given us such global hits as We Cry, The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, For The First Time, Hall Of Fame (featuring will.i.am) and Superheroes.
Tales From The Script topped the charts on its release last year. It followed in the footsteps of previous chart-topping albums The Script (2008), Science & Faith (2010), No Sound Without Silence (2014), Freedom Child (2017) and Sunsets & Full Moons (2019). The accomplishment means that The Script have now equalled the number of UK #1 albums achieved by iconic artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Pink Floyd and Radiohead.
