Lewis Capaldi sings his soul in Manchester tonight. A gig full of banter happiness and emotion. Scottish soul singer wins the hearts of millions and reaching record breaking number 1 albums and singles it’s no wonder everyone has a thing for Lewis. For this tour supporting this chap is Grace carter, a young contender rising up in the music scene.
Lewis Capaldi, what a guy. Having launched his debut album back in may along with hit singles like ‘Somebody You Loved’, ‘Bruises’ and now ‘Letting You Go’ , which instantly hit number 1 on itunes and Spotify, is all the proof you need to say that we bloody love Lewis. Throughout the night he was cracking lots of banter and explaining to the crowd about his music and about his past. Lewis is so amazed at what he has achieved over the past few years, from playing in local pubs to having headline sellout tours its crazy, but ever so thankful to the fans and he keeps saying he wouldn’t be on this stage if it wasn’t for all their support.
Lewis is known mostly for his banter and his funny happy going personality which outshines anything. He’s so down to earth along with being a very talented songwriter/ singer. He laughs at the fact the song beats and vibes are so happy but the lyrics are so depressing, everyone laughs but it’s true hence the emotion of the show. For some parts the crowd just sing instead which is a overwhelming sensation. One part when the crowd sang Lewis said “I can sing this better” followed by laughter.
For those who have missed out or want to see this chap he will be doing a Uk tour next march including two dates in Manchester in a bigger venue but with the same attitude of be yourself and just live life.
Grace Carter, like all of us this upcoming singer will be remembered from tonight. Grace gracefully takes stage with her Soul/R&B music. Despite not having an Album out yet she does have an EP “Why Her Not Me” launching in 2018 and since then releasing some new singles “Fired Up” and a sensational single covering “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak. We were lucky enough to hear this live along along with this gem. Despite a short set the crowd were over the moon and wanted more. Grace has supported Rag’n’Bone man and Dua Lipa and now the Uk’s favourite scottish singer Lewis Capaldi. This proves that Grace is the one to watch over the next year and when she gets an album out hopefully in 2020 this will glide her to the top!
