Lewis Capaldi to play exclusive intimate hometown show for free

The rare performance comes at a time when Capaldi is in the middle of a sold out worldwide tour.

Lewis Capaldi is set to play an intimate hometown show at a venue he played at before his meteoric rise to fame in 2019.

The singer, whose second album Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent, will be released on May 19 will return to Glasgow to perform an exclusive gig on June 7 at the O2 Academy.

The rare, intimate performance also comes at a time when Capaldi is in the middle of a sold out worldwide tour playing to hundreds of thousands all over the world.

Around 900 pairs of tickets are up for grabs and the gig is available exclusively through a prize draw for Virgin Media broadband and O2 mobile customers through Priority on the app or website.

The concert will not be available for general sale.

Speaking about the gig, Capaldi said: “I’m very excited to be going back home to play at an intimate venue that’s so important to me. I really appreciate O2 for having me and making this show happen exclusively through Priority – I can’t wait to see some of you there!”

Gareth Griffiths, director of partnerships and sponsorship at Virgin Media O2, said: “Priority gigs are our way of giving O2 and Virgin Media customers incredible access in an intimate setting to the biggest music stars in the world. We are so excited to be able to bring Lewis Capaldi to O2 Academy Glasgow in what is set to be an unforgettable performance, with access to tickets only available through Priority.”

Last week, the ‘Pointless’ singer also announced his “smallest shows since 2017” at intimate events in Glasgow and Dundee following the release of his second album.

The hitmaker will host a Q&A session with fans and perform acoustically at SWG3 in Glasgow and Fat Sam’s in Dundee for a special ‘Behind the Music’ event in the days following his album release.
