Verdict: Four stars.

SCOTLAND’S man of the moment Lewis Capaldi was given a heroes welcome at the first of two homecoming gigs at Glasgow’s Hydro.

Casually strolling on stage to perform hit Grace, the singer sounded soulful despite his relentless touring schedule.

Showing off his knack for comedy, the star delivered the one-liners as well as the hits during the sold-out set - and the move was one that had the audience in stitches.

He beamed: “Glasgow! How we f***ing doing?

“It’s good to be home.”

That greeting sent his fans into hysterics who were happy to have their Lewis home as they lapped up Forever, Don’t Get Me Wrong and Maybe.

Hold Me While You Wait was a highlight allowing Lewis to show his vulnerable side while the song that first put him in the spotlight, Bruises was a moment to remember.

The 23-year-old has created a formula that has allowed him to become an unlikely pop icon.

Beneath the swagger and banter, however, lies a singer who has raw talent and a voice that sounds so pure in a live setting.

That in itself has carried Lewis from playing to a crowd of 250 at the 13th Note to the 14-000 plus capacity Hydro in just three years, a feat few have achieved.

Fade and Before You Go finished the set beautifully before the finale of Someone You Love.

The singer’s debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent has pushed him to the dizzy heights of fame he now enjoys.

Describing the gig as one of the best days of his f***ing life, you now have to wonder if he will easily go beyond his current success with a follow-up album that is equally as powerful if not better.
