A-List Pop Artist Lewis Capaldi Making his Way to Malta

Somebody you love is coming to Malta… and this is none other than multi-award winner, Lewis Capaldi, who will be making his debut on the iconic Fosos on  2 July.

2019 opened in the midst of Capaldi finding himself plauded from seemingly every critic spanning each and every corner of the globe. With six recordbreaking back-to-back, and completely sold-out headline tours all over the world in less than two years, his ascent is, quite simply, unprecedented.

From his humble beginnings, filling pubs, merely 24 months ago, to headlining Arena tours, usually sold out in seconds, all of which astonishingly happened before the release of his debut album, ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’.

There’s no better introduction to his debut offering, than the worldwide Number 1 smash hit single ‘Someone You Loved’, which spent seven weeks as the UK’s Number 1 single, shattering chart history at every turn. The album rocketed to number 1, where it spent no less than 10 weeks at the top of the UK albums chart, making it the longest running top 10 album in UK history.

The hit was nominated at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and won the 2020 Brit Award for Song of the Year. That year, Capaldi also took home the Brit Award for Best New Artist.

The story soon became familiar all over Europe, Australia, Asia and finally, America, where it topped the Billboard Hot 100, propelling Capaldi into elite territory, joining the likes of Adele and Ed Sheeran, all part of a handful of artists from the UK who reached the top of the American chart, shattering the two billion stream count in the process.

“This is sterling news for Malta’s tourism industry. Having another world-renowned artist heading to the Granaries during the upcoming summer, as part of an exciting calendar of events, will certainly boost Malta’s tourism prospects for the months ahead. Having a quality product needs to be order of the day if we truly want to achieve our vision in making Malta a hub of tourism excellence for the years to come,” outlined Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo.

Malta is once again proving to become the ideal Summer destination for fans of all kinds of music. We, at VisitMalta are proud to be welcoming Lewis Capaldi on the Floriana in July as we continue to slowly recover from the disruption which was brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. This event will be organised as a controlled Standing event where all the COVID-19 mitigation measures applicable at the time of the event will be respected,” Dr Gavin Gulia, Chairman of the Malta Tourism Authority added.
