#10 One Day, Live acoustic version, 2014
In 2014 Paolo Nutini released his album ‘Caustic Love’. A few of these tracks were also released in a beautiful acoustic version. ‘One Day’ was one of them.
#9 Candy @ Sziget Festival, 2012
A slightly younger Paolo Nutini can be found at the Sziget Festival in 2012. He picks up his guitar and shows the audience how, even in a burning hot sun, you can still hit all the right notes.
#8 What a Wonderful World @ Live Earth, 2007
We’re looking at an even younger Paolo Nutini in 2007, during Live Earth. He doesn’t keep his inspirations secret; in London he plays Louis Armstrong’s ‘What A Wonderful Word’. This results in a very pure performance, with his raw voice, a trompet and a guitar as his only instruments.
#7 Coming Up Easy – Claudy Nobs Tribute, 2013
Neatly dressed in suit during a tribute to Claude Nobs, Nutini performs ‘Coming Up Easy’ with a complete brass section.
#6 Last Request @ Eden Sessions, 2015
There are musicians who never want to hear anything about their début album or first single ever again, but luckily Paolo Nutini is not one of them. In 2015 he plays ‘Last Request’ during the Eden Sessions. This was his first single, and 9 years after release he still performs it on a regular basis. In Cornwall the audience was gifted a very peaceful version; just Paolo and his guitar.
#5 Jenny Don’t Be Hasty @ Pinkpop, 2014
In 2014 Paolo Nutini contributed to Pinkpop, but he had already done this before in 2010. He is clearly under influence of ‘something’, but it hardly affects his performance. Of course, lazily hanging around the microphone comes with the job, and in this case it even seems to do his voice some good. This is ‘Jenny Don’t Be Hasty’ in Landgraaf, 2010.
#4 Better Man @ Studio Brussel, 2014
At Studio Brussel, Paolo (with sunglasses) gave away a guest performance and played ‘Better Man’. A nice and slow, acoustic version, which you really must hear.
#3 Let Me Down Easy @ Radio 1’s Big Weekend, 2014
In 2014 Radio 1’s Big Weekend takes place in Glasgow, Paolo’s home base. He plays an amazing version of ‘Let Me Down Easy’, from his album ‘Caustic Love’.
#2 New Shoes @ Sziget Festival, 2012
For number 2, we have to go back to the burning sun of Sgizet again. The specators’ shoes fly around during ‘New Shoes’. A track with a slightly more light-hearted feel, but of course good sing-a-longs are important too!
#1Iron Sky @ Glastonbury, 2014
‘Iron Sky’, with the astonishing speech by Charlie Chaplin, might just be one of the most magnificent singles by Paolo Nutini. In 2014 he plays this track with all his heart and energy at Glastonbury. Check out how the stage turns dark during Charlie Chaplin’s speech, and how the audience can shout along every single word.
The internet is filled to the brim with performances by various artists and bands. Unfortunately, the best live performances are often shadowed by mobile phone recordings with loud shouting audiences in the background. In Autoplay we put the best live performances by an artist in one playlist. So put an end to going through thousands of videos on Youtube; all you need is an update from the Autoplay-list.
