KT Tunstall turns agony aunt at V Festival Stafford

Plus singer reveals she's a line dancing queen

KT Tunstall has continued the Stafford leg of the 2007 V Festival this afternoon (August 19) with an appearance on the V Stage.

The Scottish singer played a resilient set in cold, rainy conditions, promising to do her best to raise the crowd’s spirits.

“Hello V, it’s a wee bit grotty,” she declared as she took the stage. “Thanks for putting up with the grottiness, we’ll do our best to keep you entertained.”

Kicking off with new song ‘Little Favours’, the singer played a set that mixed her debut album ‘Eye To The Telescope’ and ‘Drastic Fantastic’ which is due out next month.

Introducing ‘Other Side Of The World’, Tunstall decided to play agony aunt for the audience.

“I’m going to give you a piece of advice, long distance relationships are stupid,” she said ahead of the song. “We must evolve, we must go out for people who are local, this for the people who ignore that advice.”

With the set featuring new songs including ‘Hold On’, she also played several crowd favourites, revealing an unlikely accolade for one track.

“You know you’ve made it as a musician when you get to Number One in the British line dance charts and this is how I did it,” Tunstall declared ahead of ‘Black Horse And The Cherry Tree’ before wrapping up with a loud rendition of ’Suddenly I See’.
