Lewis Capaldi To Perform In The UAE In January 2020

Someone You Loved is coming to the UAE! Wondering what we’re talking about? The famous Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi will perform in the UAE for the first time. Famous Someone You Loved singer will get the crowd roaring and grooving to his tunes at Sharjah’s Al Majaz Amphitheatre on January 17.

What’s In It?

The Scottish singer took to Instagram to announce the news. He posted: “Buzzing to announce my first ever show in UAE. Can’t wait to get over.” The singer-songwriter began his musical career by singing in pubs at the age of nine. Later, on 20 October 2017 he released his first track Bruises. The song bagged 28 million plays on Spotify worldwide, making him the fastest ever unsigned artist to reach 25 million plays on the platform.

This year, the singer made headlines with Someone You Love, which is a hit across Europe, Asia and Australia. The song also bagged the top spot for seven weeks on the UK Singles Chart. Following this, in May 2019 Capaldi released his debut album, which became the best selling album over the last five years.
