KT Tunstall Glasgow 2023: how to get tickets for SEC Armadillo gig, support act and full UK tour dates

KT Tunstall is coming to Glasgow on her UK-wide tour next year.

KT Tunstall has announced a UK-wide tour, including a date in Glasgow, in anticipation of her next album.

The 16-date tour will be the Scottish singer’s first since the pandemic, and it is expected to feature all the hits plus new tracks.

Available to pre-order now, her seventh album, NUT, will be released on September 9, and will include her latest singles Private Eyes, I am the Pilot and Canyons.

NUT is the third instalment of her trilogy of albums which she started in 2016. Each part of the trilogy relates to the three existential parts of ourselves; KIN = Spirit, WAX = Body, and NUT = Mind.

KT explained why she chose NUT as the album’s name and her inspiration for the cover art.

She said:  “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 ‘Suddenly I See’ singer added that the tour will have a fresh lineup of supporting artists.

She said:  “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.”

When is KT Tunstall coming to Glasgow?

Who is KT Tunstall?

The Scottish musician’s success began in 2004, with the release of her  multi-platinum debut album, Eye to the Telescope. It included global hits Black Horse and the Cherry Tree and Suddenly I See.

The Grammy nominated singer said her style has a “troubadour, acoustic guitar-driven emotional side” and an “electrified rock side of my work with rawness and teeth."

Her success continued for the next decade, releasing another three critically acclaimed, platinum albums.

But, in 2015, she sold everything she owned and moved to California - a break before spending the next seven years on creating the album trilogy.

She said the first instalment of the trilogy, KIN, was like “an absolute phoenix out of the ashes."

Now, she will tour with the album she describes as “the soundtrack to me creating a new version of myself."
