TICKETS to an intimate Aberdeen gig by a Brit and Ivor Novello award-winning singer-songwriter have been snapped up by eager fans.

Tickets to St Andrews singer KT Tunstall’s Lemon Tree gig on November 11 went on sale last Friday and quickly sold out thanks to North-east fans, keen to see the popular artist return to a venue she first visited when trying to make a name for herself.

“We are thrilled to have KT Tunstall return to The Lemon Tree as part of her autumn tour,” said Martin Gallagher, Aberdeen Performing Arts’ marketing assistant.

“It is sure to be a fantastic gig with a wonderful atmosphere in such a small intimate space - a rare experience for fans used to seeing her perform on much larger stages. We expected tickets to fly out of the door.”

Best known for her 2004 album Eye to the Telescope which spanned hit singles Black Horse and the Cherry Tree and Suddenly I See, KT Tunstall has since released two follow-up albums, Drastic Fantastic and Tiger Suit.

Born in Edinburgh, KT was raised by her adoptive family in St. Andrews. She has played several gigs in Aberdeen including a 2008 performance at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
