Lewis Capaldi tour 2019: tickets, pre-sale details, dates and venues for UK arena shows


Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi has announced a UK tour – but it won’t be happening until next year.

Taking place in March 2020, the West Lothian musician (and first cousin twice removed of actor Peter Capaldi) will be bringing his brand of folk-rock and pop to venues up and down the country.

The six date tour kicks off at Manchester’s O2 Apollo – where the 22 year old will perform on two consecutive nights on 3 and 4 March – before taking in Glasgow, Dublin and Cardiff, and winding up at London’s Wembley SSE Arena on 12 March.

The full list of dates is as follows:

3 March: Manchester, O2 Apollo
4 March: Manchester, O2 Apollo
5 March: Glasgow, SSE Hydro
8 March: Dublin, 3Arena
11 March: Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena
12 March: London, Wembley SSE Arena

Capaldi has had a meteoric rise to fame, and the announcement of these area tour dates comes before his debut album, ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent’ – is even released.

That record is due for release on 17 May.

“To be announcing shows this size before my album is even out is genuinely something I can’t comprehend!” said the singer on Twitter.

“Thank you all so much for making this possible!”

What is LIVELIVE?

Capaldi also announced ‘LIVELIVE‘, something he said he had been “working on for a while”, designed to help those who may suffer from anxiety to feel more comfortable at his shows.

“[I] know that a lot of you for one reason of another might find shows difficult, whether it’s anxiety or panic,” he said on Twitter.

“I want to make sure that as many of you who feel that have the support to come down!”

The initiative will provide “designated help points” in every venue, safe place “escape rooms” to retreat to if you or a friend need time out from the show, and other measures designed to help ease the gig-going experience.

Fifty pence added to each ticket sale will go towards creating an email hotline for people experiencing anxiety or emotional difficulties.

The LIVELIVE initiative will fund teams who will be trained in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have.

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.

How do I get tickets?

Those who pre-order Capaldi’s debut album on any format via the Official Store before 4pm on Tuesday 23 April will receive a unique pass code for early access tickets to the UK & Ireland 2020 tour dates.

Codes will be emailed from 6pm on Tuesday 23 April, and the pre-sale will start at 9am on Wednesday 24 April.

Pass codes give you access to pre-sale tickets on-sale where you’ll get the chance to buy up to four tickets.

Receiving a pre-sale code doesn’t guarantee tickets, and fans who have already pre-ordered the album from the official store are automatically eligible for pre-sale access and do not need to pre-order again.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday 26 April.
