Lewis Capaldi sold out his biggest gigs to date in just one second.
Fans of the Bruises singer snapped up tickets for his shows at London’s O2 Arena in record time when they went on sale this morning (Friday).
With capacity crowds of 40,000 set to attend the concerts over two nights in October, the Bathgate-born singer took to social media to express his delight.
The man who calls himself the Scottish Beyonce told his army of Instagram followers: “We just sold out two nights at the O2 Arena. 40,000 of us. I have no words.”
The concerts are the final fling from the 23-year-old’s hugely successful Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent album, the biggest selling record in the UK last year.
And the news comes after a bumper week for the megastar, who took home best New Artist and best British Single at the Brits, and was praised for an emotional performance of Someone You Loved.
Music promoter Gordon Duncan added: “It’s something that can happen for bigger shows, if people are ready to buy as soon as tickets go live, but it’s still an amazing achievement.
“It’s no surprise really though, when he sold out his 2018 O2 shows in Glasgow before he’d even released the album, we knew this was going to be big.”
Yesterday the humble musician revealed he was in a bit of a reflective mood, as he shared memories on Instagram of his last time on the 02 stage back in 2018, when he supported Sam Smith.
Lewis said: “To be announcing my own headline show here less than two years later is absolute madness.”
