Lewis Capaldi’s fans finish set for him as singer struggles with Tourette syndrome during performance

Famous Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi recently announced that he is set to have a break in the future.

In his Instagram post, the singer-songwriter expressed his gratitude to Glastonbury. “First of all, thank you to Glastonbury for having me, for singing along when I needed it, and for all the amazing messages afterwards,” Capaldi wrote. “It really does mean the world.”

The singer-songwriter then announced the sad news that he is set to get a much-needed break from tours. “The fact that this probably won’t come as a surprise doesn’t make it any easier to write, but I’m very sorry to let you know I’m going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future,” the singer-songwriter continued.

Capaldi performed during the Glastonbury festival, which brought a number of world-renowned artists including Elton John, Guns N’ Roses, Arctic Monkeys, and even the likes of Lana Del Rey, Lizzo, Lil Nas X, and many more.

The singer experienced his Tourette syndrome while he was performing his hit song “Someone You Loved.”

Capaldi’s fans came to the rescue and helped the singer finish the song as the symptoms subsided. The singer apologized to his fans as his voice was having a hard time during the performance.

“I really apologize,” Capaldi said. “You’ve all come out, and my voice is really packing in,” he added to his fans.

It was said that Capaldi cancelled all shows he had for the month of June up to the festival in order to get rest, recover, and be in a healthy condition for his performance for the festival.

Capaldi has been known for a number of popular songs including “Before You Go,” “Bruises,” “Hold Me While You Wait,” and the previously mentioned “Someone You Loved.”

The singer has been in a struggle with Tourette syndrome, which is said to be a disorder that causes movements or sounds that are unwanted, rapid, and repetitive, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

There is no cure for this disorder. However, there are treatments that can be applied in managing some of its symptoms. It can be remembered that Capaldi opened up about having the said disorder in September last year.

The singer-songwriter’s tour in Southeast Asia has reportedly been cancelled.

Capaldi was scheduled to have his “Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent” tour, which was set to take place in Singapore on July 25 and in the Philippines after two days. Aside from these, other sets that were cancelled were in Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival and Indonesia’s We The Fest.
