James Arthur's Scarborough show cancelled due to adverse weather conditions

James Arthur has been forced to cancel his concert at Scarborough Open Air Theatre tonight due to adverse weather conditions.

In a statement, the promoters of the show apologised to fans but said that continuing lightning strikes in the Scarborough area meant the show cannot go on.

Arthur himself took to social media to tell fans he's 'gutted' and that the gig will be rescheduled.

Due to the adverse weather conditions, and the continued lightning strikes in the Scarborough area, this evening’s performance with James Arthur is unable to proceed. We extend our sincerest apologies to everyone who has come to the show but safety must come first. We are investigating the possibility of rescheduling the show and will post an update as soon as possible.
