Fashion icon will perform in Scotland for the first time in six years

Singer and fashion icon Grace Jones has been confirmed as the support act for Paolo Nutini‘s forthcoming Glasgow Summer Sessions gig.

The show takes place on Saturday, August 29 at Bellahouston Park. As pointed out by The Daily Record, it will be Jones’s first Scottish performance since playing the Clyde Auditorium in 2009. 35,000 are expected to be in attendance to see the 66-year-old and the Paisley-born Nutini.

Commenting on the booking, Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts & Events. said: “Grace Jones is an international music icon; her career has spanned over 4 decades, 10 albums, multiple hits and collaborations with some of the world’s biggest stars. It’s going to be one hell of a live show at Glasgow Summer Sessions.”

The two-night event will see Calvin Harris, supported by Ellie Goulding, John Newman, Disciples and Burns, perform on the Sunday (August 30). Jones is also due to perform at Festival Number 6 this September. The Welsh event’s line-up includes Belle & Sebastian, Kate Tempest and Ghostpoet.
