Paolo Nutini Italian tour a huge success

The recent support slots in Italy for Paolo Nutini for his number 1 album ‘Caustic Love’ tour were something special for everyone involved with The Rainband. The 3 shows in Genoa, Padova and Rome had audiences of over 10,000 per night. The band were the only support on the night and had a very prominent 45 minute set to warm up the crowd for the main event. The response from the Italian crowds were fantastic every night as can be seen from the short video below of the finale during the Padova show. We can’t wait to go back! Ciao for now…
