Scarborough OAT is famed for putting on amazing nights of live music. It seemed perfect to blend the two for National Tea Day.“We cannot wait to bring Yorkshire’s favourite sons Kaiser Chiefs here to the OAT on May 27 and then indie legends The Charlatans on June 16. These are going to be two amazing nights.“So, we are delighted to be joining forces with Yorkshire Tea to give fans of these two great British brands a ‘proper brew’ this National Tea Day.”Kaiser Chiefs – Nick ‘Peanut’ Baines, Simon Rix, Vijay Mistry, Andrew White and front man Ricky Wilson – head to Scarborough OAT fresh from a triumphant UK arena tour.2016 saw Kaiser Chiefs headline at V Festival before the release of their sixth album Stay Together which included the euphoric, pop-infused singles Parachute and Hole In My Soul.The Charlatans – Tim Burgess, Mark Collins, Martin Blunt and Tony Rogers – remain one of the most explosive live acts around with a non-stop jukebox of indie rock’s greatest hits including The Only One I Know, Weirdo, One to Another, North Country Boy and 2015’s stunning Come Home Baby.The band’s 13th studio album Different Days will be released on May 26 featuring guest appearances from such luminaries as Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, New Order’s Stephen Morris and crime writer Ian Rankin.National Tea Day was launched to celebrate the nation's favourite drink. Events are happening all over the country on Friday and tea drinkers the world over can share their stories by using #NationalTeaDay across all social media channels.Last year #NationalTeaDay was the top trending hash tag in the UK – for 2017 organisers are aiming to make it the world's leading hash tag.Tickets for Kaiser Chiefs and The Charlatans at Scarborough OAT are available in person from Scarborough Open Air Theatre Box Office (01723 818111).
