Paolo Nutini Returns To Road And Goes Late Night
The tour will continue through a September 19th performance at the Showbox in Seattle (see attached itinerary). The dates celebrate the recent release of the Scottish-born troubadour's acclaimed second album, "Sunny Side Up." Joining Paolo on all dates is Chop Shop/Atlantic recording artist Anya Marina.
Nutini and his crack band have just been booked to perform "Candy" live on NBC's The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, set for Thursday, September 10th (check local listings). A companion video for "Candy" – filmed in Cuba under the direction of Nez (Lily Allen, Kano) – is currently in "Medium" rotation at VH1, where it has been a fixture on the network's Top 20 Countdown.
"Sunny Side Up" – which includes the single, "Candy" – is proving an international success, having debuted at #1 in the UK, where the album also earned instant gold certification and has since been certified platinum. What's more, the album premiered at #2 on the Irish chart, and in the top 20 in the Netherlands and Italy (where it was the week's highest new international entry).
