Lewis Capaldi Moved to Tears as Fans Wrap Up His Song at Glastonbury Festival

Lewis Capaldi’s followers were there by his side this weekend at Glastonbury.

The 26-year-old musician struggled to finish his set at the music festival in England just three weeks after canceling a spate of shows in order to “rest and recover” both mentally and physically.

On Saturday, the “Someone You Love” singer struggled to perform the chart-topping tune due to what appeared to be involuntary motions and his voice breaking.

Capaldi, who has previously spoken openly about his difficulties with anxiety and Tourette syndrome, did not have to finish the set alone. The full crowd chanted every word and guided the recording artist across the finish line as his band continued to play the song.

The BBC filmed the poignant moment in a video that has already received over 50,000 likes on Twitter.

“Glastonbury, thank you so much,” exclaimed Capaldi at the end of his act. “If I never get to do this again, this has been amazing.”

According to The Guardian, before the song, Capaldi spoke about his “wee break for my mental health” and how much Glastonbury meant to him.

“I wanted to come back and do Glasto because it’s so incredible, so I just wanna thank you for coming out and watching us. I was s— scared but you’ve really made me feel at ease. I’m really sorry — I hope the Eavises will have me back even though it’s been a bit of a s— show.”

During the act, he remarked, “I feel like I’ll be taking another wee break for the next few weeks.” You might not see me for the rest of the year, but when I do return and meet you, I hope you’re willing to watch.”

His Glastonbury presence comes only weeks after he announced the brief hiatus on Instagram, stating in a “difficult message” that he had to cancel all engagements before the festival.

“It’s been such an incredible time leading up to this new album, and seeing all of the support from everyone has been beyond anything I could have ever dreamed of,” he said of his sophomore album, Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent, which he released in May.

“That being said, the last few months have been mentally and physically taxing.” I haven’t been home fully since Christmas, and I’m still trying to recover my bearings.”

“I need to take these three weeks to be Lewis from Glasgow for a bit, spend some time with my family and friends and do normal things that are an important part of me feeling better.” he continued. I hope everyone understands.”

Capaldi indicated in an Apple Music interview in May that he was willing to take break from music in order to protect his mental health. “Right now I’m at a point where I can balance my mental health and how I feel in general … the trade-off is worth it,” he said at the time.

“I’ll take a few panic attacks and my Tourette’s and stuff for what’s happening, but if it gets to the point where things get worse mentally and I stop looking after myself in that regard, I think that would be a point where I’d be like, ‘I’m just not going to do this anymore.'”

“At that point, if it felt like it was becoming something that I was not into or was causing me stress or I hated, then that’s when I would probably pack it in,” he continued.

The rapper revealed his Tourette syndrome diagnosis to the public in September, explaining his twitches to followers during an Instagram Live — and disclosing he’d detected them in previous interviews from 2018.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Tourette syndrome is an illness characterized by “that involves repetitive movements or unwanted sounds (tics) that can’t be easily controlled.” Tics commonly appear between the ages of 2 and 15, and boys are three to four times more likely than females to acquire the illness.
