KT Tunstall wowed fans at the final night of her European tour last week, after bringing an iconic 90s pop star onto stage.

The Suddenly I See hitmaker played at the SEC Armadillo on Friday, singing many of her classic hits from the early 2000s as well as more recent music.

To the audience’s surprise, she was joined by Mel C, aka ‘Sporty Spice’ from the legendary UK girl group Spice Girls.

The pair brought the house down with their rendition of the band’s 1997 hit, Stop, from their second studio album Spiceworld.

Tunstall, 47, is currently in the middle of a world tour to support her latest album, Nut, and is set to continue with a series of gigs across North America.

The Edinburgh singer-songwriter’s seventh studio album Nut is the third and final album in her “soul, body and mind” trilogy.

It was released on September 9 last year, following the first two albums of the trilogy, Kin and Wax.

The Grammy-nominated musician shot to fame after a dynamic performance of Black Horse and the Cherry Tree on the Jools Holland show in 2004.

She told STV’s What’s On Scotland earlier this year the experience was like being “thrown out of a human cannonball”.

The star added that despite living now living in Los Angeles full-time, Scotland is still home.

“I’m pretty sure I haven’t lost my accent. That’s been a very important thing to me because it’s just awful when you hear the American creep in. I hope I’m doing everyone proud that it’s staying intact.”

“I just can’t wait. It’s been so long because of Covid that we’ve done a proper tour and I’m so proud to be coming to Glasgow’s Armadillo. I’ve not played there as a headline show before.

“And it’s the last night of the tour, so it’s going to be a massive knees-up in Glasgow.”

Asked how Scottish audiences compare to the rest of the world, she said: “Just the best. They deserve special outfits, that’s how good they are.”

Tunstall is also making her musical debut later this year, having created original songs for the stage adaptation of Saving Grace – a show based on the 2000 film of the same name.
