New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Today, 22-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi
announced his second North American tour of 2019. Kicking off with a trio of shows in Texas, the headline run will also include concerts at First Avenue in Minneapolis (October 3), Brooklyn Steel in New York (October 11) and the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC (October 12). See below for itinerary.
Fans who pre-order Capaldi's debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, from his store will have access to a ticket pre-sale that runs from Wednesday, May 8th, at 10:00 AM local time through Thursday, May 9th, at 10:00 PM local time. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, May 10th, at 10:00 AM local time.
The fall outing will find Capaldi playing larger venues than those he will visit on his summer run, which had already sold out, prompting him to upgrade venues in Seattle and Portland, both due to phenomenal demand.
Capaldi's March 2020 tour of the UK and Ireland recently sold out in mere seconds, making him the first artist in history to sell out arenas prior to the release of a debut album. He will perform for upwards of 100,000 people on the run, which includes a show at the SSE Arena
Wembley in London and two nights at 3Arena in Dublin. He will also tour with both Ed Sheeran
and The Killers
in the UK this summer.
Capitol Records will release Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, on May 17th. It includes his breakout single, "Someone You Loved," which has shattered records throughout Europe
and just ended a nearly unprecedented seven straight week run at #1 on the U.K. charts. The song recently re-entered the Spotify Global Top 50 and is now charting in over 25 countries. "Someone You Loved
" has also re-entered Spotify's Today's Top Hits playlist, where it ended a 19-week run in late February. Capaldi has become a Top 250 artist on the platform with 500 million combined plays and nearly 12 million listeners across only nine tracks to date.
"Someone You Loved
" ranks in the Top 200 in over 70 countries on Apple Music
and in over 100 territories on Shazam. The official video - which stars Scottish actor Peter
Capaldi, who portrayed the Twelfth Doctor in the iconic British television show "Dr. Who" and is a distant cousin of Lewis - has nearly 20 million combined views. Watch it HERE.
Cumulative global streams of all Capaldi's songs now exceed 740 million. "Hold Me While You Wait" racked up over one million global streams on Spotify in the first 24 hours following its release last week. Fans who pre-order Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, available at all digital partners, will instantly receive "Hold Me While You Wait" plus "Someone You Loved," "Grace," "Bruises," "Lost on You" and "Fade." A CD box set featuring colored vinyl with metallic cover, sunglasses and Lewis calendar is now available exclusively at https://lewiscapaldi.lnk.to/webstore
