“Massively honoured to be asked to play for Radio 1 and the Manchester Camerata Orchestra this year. I remember watching The 1975 in Blackpool and being blown away! Buzzing to work on arrangements of the tunes with a full orchestra.” – Lewis Capaldi
BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo announced that Lewis Capaldi is set to perform alongside the Manchester Camerata Orchestra as part of Radio 1 Presents: The Lewis Capaldi Symphony on Monday 5th of August in Croxteth, Liverpool.
The Scottish singer-songwriter is one of the biggest UK artists to emerge in the last year with his single Someone You Loved spending seven weeks at number one and recently being named biggest song of 2019 so far, whilst his debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent sat at the top of the album charts for four weeks.
A friend of the station, Capaldi has previously featured on Radio 1’s Brit List – the station’s commitment to supporting new British artists, offering sustained playlist support – as well as appearing on BBC Music’s Sound of 2018 longlist, playing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Middlesbrough, and performing in Radio 1’s Live Lounge.
The singer has also won himself an army of fans including the likes of Stormzy and most recently Jonas Brothers who covered his number one track in Radio 1’s Live Lounge, amassing over 2 million views alone.
An audience of 12,500 fans will be able to watch the one night spectacular with tickets on sale now via the Radio 1 website priced at £20.50 + £1.50 booking fee.
