KT Tunstall announces North American tour

Trek supports latest album Nut

KT Tunstall is ready to hit the road for a North American run of live shows beginning April 20th with four shows in eastern Canada before heading to the US beginning on April 28th in Boston. The tour follows on the heels of a string of European dates that begin in February, running through March, including 16 shows throughout The UK. The upcoming US shows mark Tunstall’s first extended date tour there since 2019 and will support her recently released seventh studio album, Nut. Known for her dynamic live performance, Tunstall’s signature style skyrocketed her to fame when she appeared solo on the Jools Holland show performing her then new single, “Black Horse and The Cherry Tree” in 2004.

Tunstall rang in 2023 with a special New Year’s Eve show opening for fellow singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile at a sold out Portland, OR’s Moda Center. In March, Tunstall will be the featured artist on American Airlines flights as part of their Centre Stage program, a monthly audio and video highlight channel that is featured as part of American Airlines’ on-board entertainment options.

Tunstall burst onto the music scene with her 2004 multi-Platinum debut, Eye to the Telescope, which spawned the global hits “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Suddenly I See.” These songs established Tunstall as a captivating, must-see live performer, as well as an extraordinary songwriter who captures both an introspective view while channeling her inner rock edge. “I feel there are two immediate, recognizable pillars of my style,” she says. “I have this troubadour, acoustic guitar-driven emotional side. Then there’s definitely a rocker side of me with sharper teeth.”

In the last few years, the Grammy-nominated Scottish musician has expanded on these musical selves by focusing on a trilogy of records, where each album zeroes in on a single concept: soul, body and mind. The first, 2016’s Kin, was the soul record; 2018’s Wax was the body record, and the new Nut is the mind record.

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.”
