Lewis Capaldi is canceling all shows and engagements through June 24th due to struggles with his physical and mental health.
The singer shared in a statement posted to Instagram: “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 the support from everyone has been beyond 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 am struggling to get to grips with it all. I need to take a moment to rest and recover, to be at my best and ready for Glastonbury and all the other incredible shows coming up so that I’m able to continue doing what I love for a long time to come.”
Capaldi said he wants to spend the next three weeks spending time with friends and family, and do “normal life things that are an important part of me feeling better,” and apologized to fans who’ve spent money on travel and hotels already: “The fact that you’re willing to come out and spend your time, money and love on these shows is beyond comprehension and I feel incredible lucky. I’m getting all the help and support I need from the incredible people around me who I’m so grateful for. I take none of this for granted and I can’t wait to be back doing it again.”
