Lewis Capaldi Announces Break Due To Tourettes

Lewis Capaldi, the talented 26-year-old Scottish songwriter, has made the difficult decision to cancel his entire upcoming tour and embark on a hiatus from touring “for the foreseeable future.” This choice comes as he seeks to adapt and cope with the impact of living with Tourette syndrome.


Following his performance on the renowned Pyramid stage at Glastonbury this past Saturday, Capaldi found himself facing vocal challenges, prompting him to rely on the support of the audience to help him deliver his greatest hits. This set marked his return to performing after previously announcing in early June that he would be canceling all scheduled dates leading up to the festival in order to prioritize his mental well-being.



During his captivating performance, Capaldi took a moment to address the massive crowd, expressing that it might be the last time they would see him for an extended period as he embarks on another much-needed break.


In his statement, he said, “I used to be able to enjoy every second of shows like this and I’d hoped three weeks away would sort me out. But the truth is I’m still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette’s and on Saturday it became obvious that I need to spend so much more time getting my mental and physical health in order, so I can keep doing everything I love for a long time.”
