Tunstall, Wainwright for August U.S. Tour


Also headed to the Conan O’Brien show in July.

By Blurt Staff


KT Tunstall’s just announced
dates for an August tour of America,
featuring opening act Martha Wainwright. Said Tunstall in a press release, “I’m
very excited to be bringing my vintage electric guitars over to the U.S.
for this month, and mixing the acoustic roots of Eye to the Telescope with the more complex driving sounds of Drastic Fantastic.”




Tunstall’s European and
North American acoustic spring 2008 tour, dubbed “The Campfire Tour,” “was a
huge success,” Tunstall added. “It taught me to enjoy the subtleties of the set
as much as the pedal-to-the-metal foot-stompers… My bar has been raised – I’ve
realized what’s possible…touring (a first album) with a band, seeing how that
album can turn into something else on stage, and how we can actually make it better…
It’s always been about getting onstage and trying to do a mind-blowing show.
And if you’re playing the same set night after night, that means playing around
with it, and experimenting with what you’ve got. It’s not a CD, it’s a gig.”




Tunstall will perform on
NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien on July 15th, with
American pop-soul icon Daryl Hall.




Of additional note: Tunstall
is a founding figure in the launch of Global Cool, an environmental issues
action group. Tunstall is also affiliated with The CarbonNeutral Company,
partnering with CarbonNeutral in a dedicate-a-tree plan in her native Scotland to
offset the carbon footprint of her own career.
