Glasgow Barrowland announced as biggest headline show to date

06.03.18

Following a remarkable run of sold out shows all across the country, including Glasgow’s 700 capacity St Lukes in September and the 1400 capacity O2 ABC last month, Lewis Capaldi has announced his biggest headline show to date at the city’s iconic Barrowland Ballroom on Sunday 11th November. Fans can join the pre-sale from Wednesday 7th March at 9am at lewiscapaldi.com/tickets. Tickets will be on general sale from 9am on Friday 9th March.

The huge success of Lewis’s debut EP Bloom, with global streams in excess of 120 million to date across all platforms, led to him being named ‘Breakthrough Artist’ at the 2017 Nordoff Robbins Scottish Music Awards with tips for success from BBC Sound Of, Evening Standard, Independent and Sunday Times Culture, to name a few. Three sold-out headline tours across the UK have helped build an army of loyal supporters and his most recent London show at the Scala even saw distantly related fan Peter Capaldi (12th Dr Who), turn up to show his support.

Lewis’s stunning new single ‘Rush’ feat. Jessie Reyez is out now, produced by Malay (Frank Ocean, Lorde, Sam Smith).
Lewis has just been confirmed as the main support on Sam Smith’s two London shows at the O2 in April and has been announced for the following festivals:

April 9th - London - O2 Arena – supporting Sam Smith
April 10th - London - O2 Arena – supporting Sam Smith
May 17th – Brighton – The Great Escape
May 26th – Warrington – Neighbourhood Weekender
July 8th – Glasgow – TRNSMT Festival (Main Stage)
Aug 23rd – Belfast – Custom House Square - supporting Kodaline
Aug 24th – Leeds Festival (Festival Republic stage)
Aug 25th – Reading Festival (Festival Republic stage)
Sep 6th to 9th – Portmerion – Festival Number 6
NOV 11TH – GLASGOW – BARROWLAND BALLROOM

Speaking on the new single, Lewis says, “The song is all about the weird headspace you occupy after the end of a relationship where you feel like absolute shit and if you’re being honest with yourself you hope the other person feels just as bad. In an ideal world we would all hope you could be happy to see someone move on and be happy but that’s not always the case.

“Of course the flip side of that is you obviously still care about this person so really you hope they’re not experiencing the shit because you know how bad it feels and wouldn’t want that for them. So the whole tune is this internal conflict you’re having thinking about the situation.”

It’s hard to believe how fast things are happening for the 21 year old from Bathgate, Scotland. It was less than 2 years ago he left college and wrote ‘Bruises’, one of the most impactful debut singles of 2017. With more new music on the horizon, he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
