BBC SOUND OF THE YEAR 2018 NOMINATED SCOTTISH SONGWRITER 'LEWIS CAPALDI' RETURNS TO ABERDEEN TO FINISH HIS UK HEADLINE TOUR AT THE LEMON TREE VENUE
The Scottish songwriter, finished his UK tour in Aberdeen. He played several dates throughout the UK after having to cancel many dates due to laryngitis. He made sure he could perform on his last tour date and the crowd helped him sing when he couldn't. So the venue was packed with many fans from all over.
The support act was a local Aberdonian called Katie Mackie she performed many of her own songs and had her music sheets on hand. She mentioned how she was so nervous and so excited to perform in Lemon Tree. When going into the venue normally before and during support acts its still quiet and it gets close to the main act it gets busy. However for this evening the venue was fully packed from the start of the night and it only got busier as the night went on.
The venue was perfect as the acoustics sounded great and all focus was purely on the music and the atmosphere created throughout the night.
In Aberdeen Lewis performed effortlessly and his voice was just as amazing as expected even though he wasn't feeling great. No doubt the rest of his gigs were to the same high level. His stage presence was something unique you could tell he was used to performing as he has been flying about for many concerts over the past few months. He was so relaxed up on stage and was just enjoying performing for all his fans.
During his performance he had a small Q&A and it was just mostly questions about an upcoming album, if he was going to a club after this and if he would marry a fan in the crowd.
Lewis Capaldi has a soft yet raw voice that still contains touches of his Scottish upbringing. The lyrics of his new EP deals with the. With so many streams on Spotify his music is a great hit. The crowd did not hide the love of this song as they sang the lyrics along with Lewis. After this tour Lewis is away to Holland for a few gigs. He has had an amazing year and I doubt it will slow down anytime soon.
