Sister Sledge are undisputedly one of the most iconic female groups of all time. Over the years, the group has amassed a string of Gold and Platinum records, accumulating total sales of more than 15m worldwide. Garnering along the way additional Grammy Nominations for Record of the Year and Best R&B Duo or group, Sister Sledge has earned more than a hundred awards and commendations.

The group has performed on some of the most prestigious stages in six of the planet’s seven continents including Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, The Royal Albert Hall, Japan’s Nakano Sun Plaza, Glastonbury, Dubai’s Burg al Arab, the Zenith in Paris, and the State House in Accra, Ghana. They also performed a rousing set at the final White House Christmas Party of the Clinton administration.

Peter Taylor, director of OAT promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “This will be the ultimate party night at Scarborough OAT this summer. We’re already delighted to be bringing Steps to this venue so to now have Sister Sledge supporting is fantastic.

“Disco, divas, chart-topping hits and pop-fuelled fun – that sounds like the recipe for the perfect party night out and it’s exactly what Scarborough OAT will be delivering.”

In a hit-packed career, Steps have scored 14 top 5 singles, sold more than 20 million records and reached Number One with three albums and three singles.

And their dancefloor-filling, feelgood brand of pop – which gave us such monster hits as 5, 6, 7, 8, One For SorrowStomp and Tragedy – is proving just as popular today as it’s ever been.

After announcing their return last year to celebrate their 20th anniversary, the band released ‘Tears On The Dancefloor’ – their first full album of original material since 2000.

Featuring such bombastic tracks as Scared of the DarkNeon BlueDancing With A Broken Heart – together with the wondrous Story of a Heart written by Abba legends Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus – the album reached Number Two in the UK Charts and has been a hit with fans new and old.

Sister Sledge join a fantastic line-up at Scarborough OAT this summer which includes Britney Spears, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Emeli Sandé, Lionel Richie, Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra’s Ibiza Classics, James Arthur, Texas, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Bastille, Il Divo, Gary Barlow, The Script, Stereophonics and Alfie Boe’s special Armed Force Day concert.
