Lewis Capaldi recently revealed that he is canceling a number of shows to “rest and recover.”
Capaldi informed his followers on Instagram that due to concerns about his health, all previously scheduled performances up to the Glastonbury Festival on June 24 have been cancelled.
Capaldi’s decision affected FM104‘s The Gig in Dublin on June 5, a show in Leeds on June 6, one in Glasgow on June 7 and another at Capital FM’s Summertime Ball at London’s Wembley Stadium on June 12.
“This is a really difficult message 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,” the Scottish singer-songwriter wrote.
“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.”
He added, “I need to take a moment to rest and recover, 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. I need to take these three weeks to be Lewis from Glasgow for a bit, spend some time with my family and friends and do normal life things that are an important part of me feeling better. I hope everyone understands.”
