CHART-TOPPING band Scouting for Girls are set to bring their hits to Skegness this Saturday when they take to the stage of the Embassy Theatre.

The three-piece – Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Pete Ellard – hit it big four years ago with a debut number one album.

“Four years ago, British pop band Scouting For Girls stole our hearts and jetted off to the stars with them,” said a spokesperson.

“The trio fronted by exuberant showman, Roy Stride, arrived with a clutch of contagious hits, She’s So Lovely, Heartbeat, It’s Not About You, Elvis Ain’t Dead, and one of the most successful number one debut albums in years, to become the biggest-selling new Brit band of the year.

“It culminated in three Brit Award nominations, multiple sold-out tours, and the three everyday guys from London emphatically became a home-grown phenomenon.

“With a repertoire full of infectious melodies, catchy tunes and toe-tapping beats. They are the perfect package of piano-based indie pop,” they added.

The band will be joined in the theatre on the night by support act Twisted Piglet.

The show will take place in the Embassy Theatre on Grand Parade on Saturday, June 30 at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £33.50.

The gig will be standing room only.
