Scottish singer Paolo Nutini has been forced to scrap his upcoming U.S. tour with legendary rocker Dave Matthews due to recording commitments.
The Last Request star was set to accompany Grammy-winner Matthews on several stateside gigs next month (Jul08), but had to pull out because of his hectic schedule recording his second LP.
The star explains in his online blog, "It is with massive regret we've had to pull out of the Dave Matthews tour next month.
"Making the record is the number one priority, so we don't have the time for a month on the road."
Nutini shot to fame in the U.K. in 2006 with the release of his debut album These Streets reaching number three in the U.K. album chart.
