Lewis Capaldi told his fans that he was sad that he had to cancel two shows in Europe this week because he was sick.
“Zurich & Milan, I’m absolutely devastated to be typing this,” the singer said in a note. “As lots of you know for the past few nights of the tour I’ve been really struggling with my voice, last night in Stockholm I tried my best to sing through the show even with it feeling really uncomfortable because I was desperate not to let any of you down.”
The 26-year-old star said he went to a voice doctor in Sweden who told him he has bronchitis and should rest his voice for at least three days so he doesn’t hurt it and can keep playing.
“I’m so very sorry to say that means that the shows in Zurich tomorrow night and in Milan the day after will be postponed,” Capaldi went on. “I’ve already checked with the venues about free days they can do as well as dates I can make it back over to play these sold-out shows that I’ve been buzzing for so long!”
He said that the Zurich show at the Hallenstadion, which was supposed to happen on Tuesday, March 7, will now happen on June 28 and the Milan show at the Mediolanum Forum, which was supposed to happen on Wednesday, March 8, will now happen on May 31. Tickets for the original dates will still be valid for the new dates.

“Hate letting you all down, and this is the last thing I want to be writing,” Capaldi said in the end. “Going to be doing everything I can with rest and medication to be ready for Barcelona awards.”
Back on February 21, fans helped Capaldi out when he had a Tourette attack during a song. The singer from Scotland was playing his No. 1 song “Someone You Loved” for a packed crowd in Frankfurt at the time. In a fan-shot video from the show, Capaldi seemed to be struggling with tics as he sang, “And I tend to close my eyes when it hurts sometimes/ I fall into your arms/ I’ll be safe in your sound till I come back around.”

From there, the fans started singing the song’s chorus back at him in unison:
“For now, the day bleeds into nightfall/ And you’re not here to get me through it all/ I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug/ I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved”
Capaldi’s next tour stop is at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, Spain, on March 10.
