Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini is set to perform in the Isle of Man.

The chart-topping musician will be appearing live at the Royal Hall at Douglas’s Villa Marina on Friday, August 2.

The Ivor Novello Award winner has a number of hit singles to his name, including Pencil Full of Lead, Last Request and New Shoes.

He shot to fame in 2006 with the release of his album These Streets which has since been certified quintuple platinum by the British Phonographic Industry.

The release shot the Scottish singer to stardom and made him a household name across the UK.

That success enabled him to perform during a number of high profile shows and TV appearances including Later with Jools Holland at Carnegie Hall in New York, The Montreux Jazz Festival, The Wireless Festival, Oxegen, T in the Park, BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Glastonbury festival.

He also supported the Rolling Stones in Vienna.

He followed the success of his debut with subsequent releases Sunny Side Up and Caustic Love

In 2022, Nutini released his fourth album Last Night In The Bittersweet which went straight to number one in the UK album chart.

That record became Nutini’s third consecutive number one album and contained the singles Through The Echoes, Lose It and Petrified In Love.

A spokesperson for the Villa Marina said: ‘We're beyond excited to announce that Paolo Nutini will take to the stage live in the Royal Hall.

‘Nutini will be performing his chart-topping hits right here in the Villa Marina as he makes an Island debut in just over three weeks time. ‘Nutini has cemented himself as one of the finest artists of his generation, known for his live performances that mix his blue-eyed soul with a cross-genre musical kaleidoscope.’
