Scottish soul singer Lewis Capaldi is set to debut in the UAE at Al Majaz Amphitheatre on January 17 next year.

The 23-year-old is best known for his single ‘Someone You Loved’ that topped the UK and US charts and has clocked over 75 million views on You Tube.

Capaldi has also hit the headlines for a very public feud with former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher, who likened the Scots star to Star Wars character Chewbacca.

After learning to play the drums and guitar at the age of two and performing in restaurants by the time he was nine years old, his official musical career began at 17 when he acquired a manager after posting a song he had recorded on his mobile phone online.

His skyrocketing fame was evident when his UK concert, part of his 2020 world-wide tour, sold out in less than a minute.

Capaldi's debut album ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent’, released in March this year, remained at the top of the UK Albums Chart for six weeks and achieved gold status in the UK only two weeks after release.

Tickets can be booked online at Platinumlist.ae
