Lewis Capaldi announces huge Hydro gig as part of UK arena tour – here's how to get tickets

Lewis Capaldi has announced a UK-wide arena tour including a huge gig at Glasgow’s Hydro – with some proceeds going towards an anxiety charity close to the chart topper’s heart.

The Scots singer-songwriter, 22, is set to play Glasgow’s SSE Hydro on March 5, 2020, and fans will be eager to snap up tickets as soon as they go on sale.

In a move which reflects the loveable Bathgate rogue’s personality, Lewis has teamed up with a charity initiative to help people experiencing anxiety or emotional difficulties.

Supporting the LIVELIVE initiative, 50p will be added to each ticket sale and will fund teams who will be trained in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have.

They will meet fans at the door, escort them to their seats and help those who want to leave quickly to avoid crowds.

Capaldi, who suffers from anxiety and has cut gigs short after experiencing panic attacks, said he wanted to have more people who suffer anxiety at his shows.

He said: “I always get tonnes of messages from people online who have said they want to come to my shows but can’t because they’re struggling massively with anxiety or are just generally afraid they will have a panic attack during the show.

“I really wanted to put something in place to help those people feel comfortable and offer them support to allow them to experience the shows.


“I just hate to feel that anyone’s anxiety is making them miss out on anything they want to do and LIVELIVE is my attempt at helping make these shows enjoyable for as many of those people who have been supporting this journey for me.”

The run of shows will be his first following an upcoming November tour -which includes smaller gigs at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall and the Princes Street Summer Sessions – as well as summer support dates with Ed Sheeran and The Killers.

Capaldi’s single Someone You Loved from his forthcoming debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent recently scored its seventh week at number one.

The track is the third longest-running number one single for a Scottish act behind Wet Wet Wet’s Love Is All Around with 15 weeks and Calvin Harris’s One Kiss ft Dua Lipa with eight weeks.

Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent will be released on May 17.
