Lewis Capaldi has decided he’ll take a break from touring, announcing this week that he’s cancelling all of his upcoming shows to focus on his mental health.
But, as witnessed over the weekend, the Scottish singer can rest assured that his fans have his back. Capaldi, who announced recently that he’s been diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome, cancelled three weeks of shows to “rest and recover” ahead of last weekend’s Glastonbury Festival, where he performed as a headliner.
A post shared by Lewis Capaldi (@lewiscapaldi) He made it through the first several songs of this Glastonbury set. However, as his band began to play the hit song, “Someone You Love”, Capaldi’s tics began to interfere with his performance and he couldn’t sing parts of the ballad.
In an incredible show of support, the crowd knew exactly what Capaldi needed in that moment and began to loudly sing along to every word. (Is someone cutting onions?) Losing his voice, ticks taking over, he battled through and the crowd lifted him up.
