Lewis Capaldi celebrates second week at number one with debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent

The Someone You Loved singing sensation has outsold the rest of the top five albums combined in the UK chart.

His UK live shows this year and early next year are virtually all sold out – see full tour details below – but fans can still get to see him live in Yorkshire when he plays the Tramlines festival in Hillsborough Park on Sunday, July 21. For tickets visit tramlines.org.uk.

He also supports Ed Sheeran at Leeds Roundhay Park on August 16 and 17.

Capaldi’s brilliant debut album, with more than 120,000 copies already, is the fastest selling album of the year so far, even beating week one record sales for Ariana Grande’s Thank You, Next.

As well as conquering the charts, he has also been announced to play this year’s Glastonbury Festival, appearing at 4pm on The Other Stage on Saturday, June 29.

Securing his first ever UK number one album is just another chapter in the Scotsman’s incredible career to date.

After spending seven weeks at number one with his single, Someone You Loved, the biggest song of the year and one of the longest running chart-topping singles of the past 25 years, Capaldi has two sold out UK headline tours to look forward to, including a run of arenas in March 2020.

He will also perform at festival dates and support shows across the summer with Ed Sheeran and The Killers. For full tour dates, visit lewiscapaldi.com.
