KT Tunstall Edinburgh 2023: how to get tickets for Usher Hall gig, support act and full UK tour dates
KT Tunstall will return to touring for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic.
Following the announcement of her seventh studio album, KT Tunstall has revealed she will embark on a 16 date tour next year.
Tunstall says, ”This will be my first full UK headline tour since the pandemic, and I’m so looking forward to playing a completely different show with a brand new line up of amazing musicians.
“Included in that line-up will be the brilliant Andy Burrows [of Razorlight] on drums (who played on ‘NUT’). He’ll also be opening the gigs with his own excellent show” she added.
Tunstall’s latest album will be the last in a trilogy of albums she began recording and releasing in 2016. Each part of the trilogy relates to the three existential parts of ourselves; KIN = Spirit, WAX = Body, and NUT = Mind.
KT explains the inspiration behind the album’s name: “Growing up in Scotland, if someone was losing their temper you would say, ‘Dinny lose yer Nut!’ I love that the word also means a seed. The album artwork is all about the brain being a garden; you reap what you sow, you need to keep the weeds at bay, and there is an almost supernatural beauty to when things blossom.”
The latest album is currently available for preorder and will be released on Friday 9 September.
