Lewis Capaldi announces break from touring 'for the foreseeable future'

This comes after he was 'carried' by fans during his set at Glastonbury when he struggled with his voice and what appeared to be ticks.

After the show, the star announced that he would be taking a break from touring "for the foreseeable future".

Earlier this year, he opened up about his Tourettes diagnosis in a Netflix documentary titled Lewis Capaldi: How I'm Feeling Now.

He also revealed how the pressures of fame have impacted him mentally and physically.

The film then went on to win at the National Television Awards (NTA) in the authored documentary category.

Speaking of the award, Lewis Capaldi said that it "means the world" to him.

He said: "I have to say thank you so so so much if you voted or even if you just watched the documentary, it genuinely means the world and it never ceases to blow me away how much this documentary has connected with people and struck a chord.

“Thank you to everyone who was involved in making it with me. I’m sorry, I can’t be there tonight. I’m in America at the minute otherwise I would be.”

Ed Sheeran has continued to top the music charts this year with the release of '-' (Subtract) which went straight to number one.

The popular short-form video platform has also helped up-and-coming artists find mainstream success with 20-year-old Mae Stephens topping the 'Breakthrough Artists of 2023' charts.

The Northamptonshire singer released several tracks this year with If We Ever Broke Up reaching number 13 in the UK singles charts.
