by Geoff Ford

Scarborough Open Air Theatre, 31 August

Scarborough’s 2019 Open Air Theatre season closed in spectacular style with a world premiere of the Queen Machine Symphonic with Kerry Ellis show which is due to tour the UK next spring. Making their UK debut Danish band Queen Machine, recognised as Europe’s finest Queen tribute band, were joined by the London Symphonic Rock Orchestra, conducted by Matthew Freeman, and by West End star Kerry Ellis.

The show was a fitting finale to another great season which has featured some great names including Madness, Jess Glynne, Kylie Minogue, Sir Cliff Richard together with two visits by man-of-the-moment Lewis Capaldi.
