SINGER Jack Savoretti will play the city's 02 Academy next year.

The star, 37, will be at the venue on Wednesday, April 6.

The new show is in celebration of his latest album Europiana which includes the first single Who's Hurting Who featuring Nile Rodgers.

He said: "Singing to Strangers’ was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved.

"Europiana’ pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”

Savoretti will also play Edinburgh's Usher Hall on Tuesday, April, 5.

Tickets for the new show go on sale on May 14 at 9 am.
