Lewis Capaldi performace at Glastonbury 2023 not ended as he would have expected.
The Scottish singer was forced to cut short his set because he visibly struggled during the performance.
Though, the 26-year-old kickstarted his performance quite chirpy and smoothly by pranking fans that Ed Sheeran would be coming on stage.
But as the set got in motion, the Before You Go crooner started to face vocal troubles and was seen having tics.
The 26-year-old, meanwhile, continued his performance backed by fans cheers in the crowd.
However, seemingly it was not enough as he ended his set without completing all songs.
After the end, the singer told the Glastonbury crowd, “I recently took three weeks off. It was a break for my mental health.
“I wanted to come back and do Glasto ’cause it’s so incredible, so I just wanna thank you for watching us. I was **** scared, but you’ve really made me feel at ease.”
The Brit Award winner also apologized to the crowd for being unable to deliver the performance.
Previously, Capaldi made it public about his diagnosis of Tourette’s Syndrome.
Soon after the performance, fans took to social media to express support for the singer.
“There’s something really beautiful about the crowd filling in the lyrics for Lewis Capaldi,” one fan commented.
“Poor guy. He looks devastated. But this is so wonderful. And all respect that he turned up to perform.”
“Heart genuinely bleeds for Lewis Capaldi. Absolutely love the guy, and watching what he goes through to perform is nothing short of heartbreaking. Hero amongst men,” another added.
