One of the most in-demand Scottish singers, Nutini last year released his fourth studio album - Last Night in the Bittersweet - which became his third consecutive UK number one.

Here's everything you need to know about the gig.

Is there a support act?

Paolo Nutini were supposed to be supported by Irish rock group Inhaler and English indie band The Big Moon.

Inhaler's frontman is the son of U2 singer Bono, while The Big Moon recently had their first top 10 album with 'Here is Everything'.

Inhaler will still be performing but The Big Moon will no longer be able to play - they have been replaced by Lizzie Reid.

Exact stage times have now been announced and are as follows:

Doors open: 5pm

Lizzie Reid: 6pm

Inhaler: 7pm

Paolo Nutini: 8.30pm

Show ends: 10.30pm
