Lewis Capaldi To Make Welcome Return To The Granite City
Following the recent release of his first new music in three years, Scottish singer-songwriter, Lewis Capaldi, has today announced a tour in early 2023, including a welcome return to Aberdeen’s P&J Live on Monday 23rd January 2023.
Lewis Capaldi is, finally, back writing and singing the songs that speak from his heart. For all the craziness and intensity of the three years prior to that cut-short arena tour, after two years' enforced isolation, he’s bursting to share his music, his feelings, once again.
If his first album made him an international star, with his second it’s nothing less than superstardom that beckons. And now, having put in the hard yards with the writing and recording, he’s ready to put in the miles all round the world.
“I’m gonna do every single thing to help this record!” Lewis exclaimed enthusiastically. “I want to give these songs the best chance possible to reach people. I've spent so much time on them. And so many people have put so much work into it, not just me, but the label, the team, the guys I’ve worked with. I owe it to them, to the fans, and to all the people who helped us on the first one as well, to show up and do everything.
“I'm ready,” Lewis concludes, champing at the bit to get back out there, “and so are the songs.”
“‘Forget Me’ is a song that’s so dear to my heart and I definitely feel like it’s my best tune yet. It's about a break up I went through where after a year, the only real contact I had with my ex was seeing her ‘post-me’ life play out on her Instagram. I was at a point where I was feeling pretty miserable and she seemed like she was moving on and having the best time, thriving, and I hated it. It seemed unfair to me that she appeared happy while I was hurting, and I was fearful she might have forgotten about me completely, so I wrote a song about it.”
Louise Stewart, Interim Managing Director at P&J Live, said: “Many fans will remember Lewis Capaldi’s last gig at P&J Live as one of the final times they were allowed to gather together, having performed right before the UK went into lockdown in 2020. It will be three years since he was here, so we’re delighted to see him back and sounding better than ever. If you’ve never seen him before, it’s time – his stage presence is absolutely magic and we know he’ll put on a great show.”
