Paolo Nutini announces another date to his epic UK tour later this year at Liverpool M&S Bank Arena on Saturday 10th December.
Last week Paolo announced four new shows at Glasgow OVO Hydro in December 2022, selling out all four shows and a whopping 50,000 tickets in an hour. Due to overwhelming demand he added a fifth date on 20th December.
Paolo Nutini new album ‘Last Night In The Bittersweet’ is a 70-minute epic that spans the distance from classic rock to post-punk to hypnotic Krautrock, in the process proving its value as his deepest, most varied, most accomplished, and ultimately most rewarding set so far.
The insistent Motorik rhythms of ‘Lose It’ brings shades of early ‘70s German bands like Can and Neu!, and are a product of Paolo writing increasingly on bass guitar. At the other end of the spectrum, ‘Through The Echoes’, which is currently A-List at Radio 2 is a timeless classic in the lineage of Ben E. King and Otis Redding, with Nutini’s vocal delivery reminding us why he got snapped up by Atlantic in the first place.
The album opens with ‘Afterneath’ which samples Patricia Arquette’s memorable speech in the final scenes of True Romance, the 1993 cult classic written by Quentin Tarantino. ‘Acid Eyes’ is the kind of love song, hopeful but mournful, that sticks in your mind, shapes your mood and won’t let go, whereas ‘Petrified In Love’ has the cheerful spikiness of Squeeze.
Paolo recently performed with Liam Gallagher at Knebworth and announced details of a headline UK and European tour, which commences in Limerick on August 21st and includes two nights at the historic Alexandra Palace in London and five nights at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow.
A recap of everything Paolo has achieved to date reiterates his status as one of British music’s biggest success stories. Two of his three albums to date, ‘Sunny Side Up’ and ‘Caustic Love’, have hit #1 on the UK album charts as he amassed 8 million global album sales, 8 million UK single sales, and 1.5 billion global streams.
The Ivor Novello winner and multiple BRIT Award nominee has also collected a remarkable 18 Platinum certifications in the UK alone.
