Playing 4 Cities in 1 Night
Scottish superstars Amy Macdonald and KT Tunstall will be transported by helicopter to play a stripped back set in 4 cities in one night.
Amy has sold over 9 million records worldwide and has released a string of hits, with “This Is the Life” charting at number one in six countries, while reaching the top 10 in another 11 countries. In February, Amy released her fourth studio album Under Stars which entered at number two on the UK Album Chart and peaked within the top ten of the album charts in Germany and New Zealand.
KT Tunstall enchants audiences and engages with every song, and that's why she continues to resonate not only among fans but throughout pop culture at large. Scotland born and now Los Angeles based, KT Tunstall emerged with her 2004 classic debut Eye to the Telescope, spawning such international hits as "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" and "Suddenly I See," which won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song in 2006. That same year she won her first Brit Award for Best British Female Artist and earned Grammy and Mercury Prize nominations in 2007. KT has released five studio albums internationally, to date: Eye to the Telescope (2004), KT Tunstall's Acoustic Extravaganza (2006), Drastic Fantastic (2007), Tiger Suit (2010), and Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon (2013). In 2016, KT returned with her vibrant album KIN. Reviewed as a "power-pop gem" by Rolling Stone, this record is KT's full-blooded follow-up to her multi-platinum debut album. Throughout her career, her music has figured prominently in film and television, including in The Devil Wears Prada, Grey's Anatomy, Winter's Tale, and many more.
