Paolo Nutini has announced a new UK arena tour – and it is set to be his biggest one to date.

The “New Shoes” singer will kick off the six-date extravaganza in Newcastle on 24 October and wrap things up in Manchester on 6 November.

In between Nutini will play in major cities Sheffield, Glasgow and Birmingham, as well as at London’s O2 Arena.

The Scottish singer-songwriter, whose third album, Caustic Love, topped the UK's Official Albums Chart in the spring, is also playing at Glastonbury on Friday - he performed on the Pyramid Stage in 2007 but will be taking to the Other Stage for this year’s revelries.

The five-day festival will see Metallica, Kasabian and Arcade Fire headlining the world-famous musical spectacular, with other major acts on the bill including the Black Keys, Massive Attack and Pixies.


Tickets for Nutini’s tour go on sale at 9am on Friday 4 July. The full list of tour dates is as follows:

  • Friday 24 October: Newcastle, Metro Radio Arena

  • Saturday 25 October: Sheffield, Motorpoint Arena

  • Monday 27 October: Glasgow, Hydro Arena

  • Thursday 30 October: London, O2 Arena

  • Wednesday 5th November: Birmingham, LG Arena

  • Thursday 6 November: Manchester, Phones 4U Arena
