Due to overwhelming demand and for the first time in the Festival’s history, a second concert in West Princes Street Gardens featuring Festival headliner Paolo Nutini will take place on Friday 30 December. This decision was made after Concert in the Gardens on the 31 December sold out in a record three hours.


On adding a second Edinburgh’s Hogmanay show Paolo Nutini said,

I was in the desert when I heard about the response to the first show. I was overwhelmed and am incredibly grateful for the support of all you great people. I was then asked if we would do a preceding show on the 30th as there could be others who never got tickets.  I said I was up for it and I hope that we get to play to as many as we can that weekend… Can’t wait.”
