Lewis Capaldi UK & Irish Arena Tour Announced
Continuing to break records and capture the nation, Lewis Capaldi has today announced a huge UK & Ireland headline arena tour, kicking off March 2020 and reaching Dublin’s 3Arena March 8 of next year.
The announcement comes ahead of the release of his eagerly-awaited debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent – out May 17 on Virgin EMI. It features his UK Number 1 platinum-selling single ‘Someone You Loved’.
Capaldi has also announced a special and unique new fan initiative LIVELIVE. Born from personal and fan experiences, the initiative has been set up for those who experience anxiety or emotional difficulties and have concerns about attending the shows.
All proceeds from a compulsory 50c extra charge at checkout for each ticket sale goes solely towards providing a dedicated email address and team at each venue who are expertly trained and qualified in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have. On the ground assistance will range from meeting fans at the door, escorting them to their seats, to taking anyone that needs to a specially designated ‘escape space’ where time out can be spent. Fans can simply visit the signposted help points inside each venue which will be open before, during and after the concert.
As of today, fans are able to get in touch by emailing [email protected]. There you can speak to a qualified support advisor and discuss any concerns you have either getting to the shows or being in attendance. If requested 48 hours before the show, Capaldi’s team can arrange for you to be met and taken into the venue to help make your visit more comfortable.
Speaking of the initiative, Capaldi comments; “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. LIVELIVE is my attempt at helping make these shows enjoyable for as many of those people who have been supporting this journey for me.”
Before setting light to arenas next year, Capaldi will first embark on his November UK tour which sold out in under a minute, including a night at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, as well as festival dates and support shows across the summer with Ed Sheeran and The Killers.
Tickets for the Dublin 3Arena show cost from €37.35. They go on sale Friday, April 26 at 9am from Ticketmaster.
