Radio 2 In Concert - Paolo Nutini


Jo Whiley presents a special show featuring a headline gig from the Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini. Radio 2 In Concert took Paolo Nutini back to Paisley on Tuesday 17th August, to perform an exclusive homecoming gig at the Town Hall, and it was the first time he'd played a concert in his home town since finding success as a singer. Introduced on stage by Jo Whiley, Paolo performs hits from his albums These Streets and Sunny Side Up in front of an audience of Radio 2 listeners and adoring fans. The show also features music from local unsigned acts Aerials Up and Admiral Fallow, who were chosen through BBC Introducing. Jo also plays highlights from an intimate acoustic session featuring Paolo Nutini and his band which was recorded at Paisley Town Hall before the concert, as part of Radio 2's Great British Songbook. Paolo talks to Jo about his career and musical influences, and answers questions from members of the audience. Jo also looks back at all the best live music offered up on Radio 2 over the past week, and brings you the latest ticket news for up-and-coming tours in her Gig Guide.
