Lewis Capaldi has announced a huge 2020 arena tour

He's not even dropped his debut album, and already current Dork cover star Lewis Capaldi is announcing a UK arena tour.

The 2020 run will kick off with two shows at Manchester's O2 Apollo before heading to Glasgow SSE Hydro, Dublin's 3 Arena and Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena.

He'll finish up with a huge show at London's SSE Arena Wembley on 12th March.

Alongside the new tour comes the announcement of a unique 'fan initiative', LIVELIVE, which is designed to help those who experience anxiety or emotional difficulties and have concerns about attending shows.

There'll be a 50p extra charge at checkout for each ticket sale which goes towards providing a dedicated email address and team for each venue, expertly trained and qualified in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have.

At the shows, they'll provide support ranging from meeting fans at the door, escorting them to their seats, or taking anyone who needs it to a specially designated 'escape space' for a time out.

Starting today, fans can get in touch by emailing to speak to a qualified support adviser who will be able to discuss any concerns about either getting to the show or being in attendance.

Lewis explains: “I always get tonnes of messages from people online who have said they want to come to my shows but can’t because they’re struggling massively with anxiety or are just generally afraid they will have a panic attack during the show. I really wanted to put something in place to help those people feel comfortable and offer them support to allow them to experience the shows. I just hate to feel that anyone’s anxiety is making them miss out on anything they want to do and LIVELIVE is my attempt at helping make these shows enjoyable for as many of those people who have been supporting this journey for me!”

Before all of this, Lewis has a UK tour in November which sold out in under a minute, and the release of that first full-length 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent', which is set for release on 17th May. He's also at a number of festivals, including Barn on the Farm and Truck.

The new dates read:

2 Manchester, O2 Apollo
3 Manchester, O2 Apollo
5 Glasgow, The SSE Hydro
8 Dublin, 3Arena
11 Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena
12 London, The SSE Arena Wembley

Tickets go on sale next Friday, 26th April at 9am.
