Fans are anxiously awaiting the moment tickets for Lewis Capaldi’s UK and European tour are released to the general public.

The pre-sale for the star’s upcoming tour “sold out in seconds” after being released on Wednesday, with Glasgow’s gone in a second.

Tickets appeared nearly immediately after on resale sites such as Viagogo – some going for more than £1,000 – with concerns more will appear at hugely inflated prices after the general sale.

The 31-date tour was announced on October 18, with Aberdeen’s P&J Live on January 23 and Glasgow’s Hydro the following night his only Scottish dates.

He will follow the tour with a new album, Broken By Desire to be Heavenly Sent, on May 19, 2023.

Capaldi has said fans of his hugely successful debut Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent could expect more of his signature musical style.

His latest hit single Forget Me was his third UK number one, while he sold out two shows at London’s O2 Arena in September.

The West Lothian singer dedicated the song “to his enemies” after claiming the position for the first time since the release of Before You Go in 2020.

He told STV’s What’s On Scotland: “I don’t want to create a new sound for myself, or reinvent myself. The songs I want to write are emotional songs, about love or loss.

“I felt like I was sounding better because I was just chilled out in my own gaff.

“Also, a lot of this record was made with most of the same people who I worked with on the first one: TMS, Phil Plested, Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway. At least one of them’s on almost every song.”

Tickets to his tour go on general sale on October 28 at 9am on Ticketmaster.
