Lewis Capaldi has had to “cancel all commitments” until Glastonbury.
He had been due to perform in Leeds this evening (6th June) for a Reading & Leeds warm-up show, with appearances at Norway’s Neon Festival and a gig at Wembley Stadium having also been cancelled.
“This is a really difficult message,” he says, “and one that hurts me a lot to have to type, but I’m really sorry to say that I’m going to have to cancel all commitments from now until I play Glastonbury on June 24th.
“It’s been such an incredible time leading into this new album, and seeing all of the support from everyone has been beyond anything I could have ever dreamed of. That said, the last few months have been full on both mentally and physically, I haven’t been home properly since Christmas and at the moment I’m struggling to get to grips with it all.”
“I need to take a moment to rest and recover,” he adds, “to be at my best and ready for Glastonbury and all of the other incredible shows coming up so that I’m able to continue doing what I love for a long time to come.”
