Lidl join with KT Tunstall for one-off Edinburgh charity gig. Here's when tickets go on sale

THEY may seem unlikely bedfellows but Lidl has teamed up with pop rocker KT Tunstall for a one-off gig at Edinburgh Assembly Rooms as they countdown to the opening their 100th Scottish store while celebrating their 25th anniversary in Scotland.

The gig will be one of four Lidl Live concerts, which see Tunstall return to her roots in January with the string of gigs that are all for charity.

The Suddenly-I-See-singer will perform to fans at the Assembly Rooms on George Street on 25 January 2020, at 6pm.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Saturday 30 November for a donation of just £7.50 with all funds raised going to STV Children’s Appeal to help children and young people living in poverty.

The Lidl Live performance will find Tunstall playing chart-topping tracks from her 15-year career.

Relishing the opportunity to perform on home turf, the star has found time for the evening concerts in a busy schedule between her West Coast Ramble tour of California, supporting pop rock duo Hall & Oates at Madison Square Gardens and joining 80’s legend Rick Astley’s UK tour in 2020.

She says, “I’m delighted to be teaming up with Lidl for a very Scottish week of music, food and fun. There is a powerful place where our mutual interests meet; supporting local suppliers, looking after the environment, and raising important funds for children’s charities in Scotland.

“When I decided to start cooking for myself on tour, it turned into KT’s Kitchen - a mad-dash online cooking show with friends where I prepare very simple, quick, healthy and delicious food backstage. The upcoming tour will involve live performances, backstage KT’s Kitchen cook offs, school visits, trips to see local producers and a lot of laughs with myself and the band girls along the way.”

Ross Millar, Regional Director for Lidl in Scotland adds, “We are proud to serve Scottish communities and champion the quality produce of our regional suppliers and we can think of no better way to celebrate our 100th store in Scotland than with an exciting foodie-themed tour of the country with national treasure, KT Tunstall.”
