Two of music’s brightest emerging talents are heading to Scarborough Open Air Theatre this summer to support Lewis Capaldi.
Global sensation Lewis is returning to the Yorkshire coast for a sell-out show on Thursday August 11.
The chart-topping and BRIT Award-winning singer-songwriter played two sell-out shows at the UK’s largest open-air arena in 2019.
And Lewis – widely regarded as one of the most successful and critically-acclaimed artists of his generation – will be joined by special guests Wild Youth and Áine Deane when he returns this summer.
Wild Youth are a band in the midst of a stratospheric ascendance with their infinitely catchy and buoyant brand of indie-pop.
The Dublin four-piece – David Whelan (vocals/guitar), Ed Porter (guitar/vocals), Conor O’Donohoe (keyboards/vocals), and Callum McAdam (drums) – found massive success both at home and abroad with a string of singles including All or Nothing, Can’t Move On and Lose Control.
Their 2019 debut EP The Last Goodbye – which was packed with catchy dance/pop tracks and pop bangers – solidified their position as one of the best things to come out of Ireland in recent years.
Follow up tracks Champagne Butterflies and Through The Phone became instant hits with fans and critics alike as the band racked up millions of streams.
And Wild Youth are certainly no stangers to sharing the stage with some of music’s biggest stars having already supported the likes of Mumford and Sons, Niall Horan, The Script and Zara Larsson, while also drawing huge crowds to their festival slots across Ireland and the UK.
Singer-songwriter Áine has enjoyed a meteoric rise since she posted her first songs on video sharing platform TikTok just a year ago.
Those videos grew a devoted fanbase into the hundreds of thousands of followers and, in true fairy-tale-fashion, Áine hit the radar of Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and Little Mix – all reposting her videos to their own millions of followers
Áine’s latest single Handmedownscan was BBC Radio 1’s ‘Introducing Track of the Week’ while she is quickly hitting a number of milestones such as surpassing 1m+ streams of her songs and supporting James Bay on a run of UK shows.
It has been a whirlwind three years for two-time BRIT Award winner Lewis that has seen him top the charts around the world and sell-out massive arena tours.
He was nominated for the Critics’ Choice Award at the 2019 BRITS before his breakthrough single Someone You Loved topped the UK Singles Chart for seven weeks.
Someone You Loved has become a global anthem – hitting number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was nominated for a Grammy Awards for ‘Song of the Year’ and is today the longest-running top 10 UK single of all time by a British artist.
Lewis’ sensational debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent – which includes the hits as Before You Go, Grace, Hollywood and Bruises – was the top-selling album of 2019 and 2020.
