Scottish star singer Lewis Capaldi announced on Tuesday that he was suspending his world tour due to his health problems, evident at last week's Glastonbury Festival in England.
The singer-songwriter The 26-year-old announced last year that he had Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder characterized by motor and vocal tics.
At Glastonbury, where he performed last Saturday in front of thousands of festival-goers, he was twitching and had gradually lost his voice. He called on the onlookers for help, apologizing profusely.
“I just need you all to sing along with me as loud as you can,” he said.
< p>Thousands of moved spectators had supported him, singing for him his flagship title “Someone You Loved”, which ended his concert, in a very strong moment.
“I will be taking a break from touring, for the foreseeable future,” he wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “The truth is that I'm still learning to adapt to the impact of Tourette.”
Before Glastonbury, he had already taken a three-week break.
“It became clear on Saturday that I need to spend a lot more time taking care of my mental and physical health, so I can continue doing what I love for a long time,” he added, thanking his family, his friends, his team and the doctors who follow him, and again apologizing to his fans.
“I will be back as soon as I can,” he added.
Lewis Capaldi was scheduled to perform in Zurich on June 28, then Australia and New Zealand, before Singapore and Seoul in July, and a series of concerts in the UK and Europe in August and September. Most of them were sold out.
Her debut album “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extend” was released in May 2019. Her second album, “Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent” was released in May.
“Someone You Loved” topped the UK charts in 2019 and then the US charts.
