Important information regarding Lewis Capaldi’s upcoming Australian & New Zealand tour:
As he mentioned on stage at Glastonbury on the weekend, Lewis Capaldi is taking some time off and has now confirmed that he will not make it to Australia & New Zealand next month for Splendour in the Grass or his sold out run of headline tour dates due to health reasons.
From Lewis: “The fact that this probably won’t come as a surprise doesn’t make it any easier to write, but I’m very sorry to let you know I’m going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future. I used to be able to enjoy every second of shows like this and I’d hoped 3 weeks away would sort me out. But the truth is I’m still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette’s and on Saturday it became obvious that I need to spend much more time getting my mental and physical health in order, so I can keep doing everything I love for a long time to come.”
Tickets will be automatically refunded in full to the original payment method used for purchase and patrons do not need to take any action.
Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi will return to New Zealand for the first time since 2020, performing at Spark Arena on July 18.
The news of his tour comes as Capaldi announces that his new album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent will be released in May 2023 on EMI Records. Capaldi’s highly anticipated New Zealand shows will be his first performances in Aotearoa since his last tour in early 2020. His 2023 tour will see him arrive with a host of new songs to perform from the new album, alongside crowd favourites.
Capaldi made his eagerly awaited return in September with new single Forget Me, marking his third consecutive UK No. 1 hit and giving fans a taste of new music to come. The new record will follow his 2019 full-length debut, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent — which peaked at #3 on the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums and featured the hit singles Someone You Loved and Before You Go.
An auspicious start to the next phase of his career, Forget Me amassed over two million streams within 24 hours of its premiere and is now approaching 100 million streams globally, in addition to making Capaldi only the third artist this year to land a single at the No. 1 spot on the UK charts in its first week. Forget Me was shortly followed by a true spectacle of a music video that saw Lewis re-enact Wham’s 1983 hit ‘Club Tropicana’ shot-for-shot.
Capaldi’s debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent sold over 10 million copies worldwide, propelling him from bedroom musician to superstar. The record’s platinum-selling single Someone You Loved earned a GRAMMY nomination for Song of the Year, won the Song of the Year prize at the Brit Awards, and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and US Top 40 charts.
Known for his down to earth attitude and sense of humour, Lewis Capaldi can be expected to charm fans across his live shows in July.
