KT Tunstall 2023 tour: when is she playing London and when are tickets available?
Suddenly you can see KT Tunstall as she tours the UK in 2023.
Upon the announcement of the UK tour, KT Tunstall was enthusiastic about returning to the UK tour circuit: ”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.”
NUT is the culmination of a seven-year project," Tunstall says. "It’s the final part of a trilogy of records that has spanned probably the most extreme and profound period of change in my life. The personal arc of these three records has been pretty extraordinary for me.”
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.”
Who is KT Tunstall?
KT Tunstall is a Grammy nominated Scottish musician who burst onto the music scene with her 2004 multi-platinum debut, Eye to the Telescope, with singles Black Horse and the Cherry Tree and the earworm Suddenly I See earning her immediate success in the UK singles and album charts.
The debut album established Tunstall as a captivating and dynamic performer, as well as a songwriter with a singular knack for balancing introspective folk and propulsive rock.
"There are two immediate, recognisable pillars of my style," she says. "I have this troubadour, acoustic guitar-driven emotional side. Then there’s definitely an electrified rock side of my work with rawness and teeth."
