On 25 July, the world-known pop star will be performing in Vingis Park, at the green “Vilnius 700” festival, celebrating the upcoming anniversary of the capital city. And the best news is that Vilnius residents and guests will be able to hear the author of hits that have garnered millions of plays on various music platforms for free.
Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi became famous for his global hit “Someone You Loved”, which has had over half a billion plays on Youtube and the longest ever stay in the UK Top 10 Singles Chart. And that’s not the only record for the performer – his album “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent” topped the UK Albums Chart for 10 weeks and became the longest running album in the Top 10.
Playing drums and guitar from a young age, Lewis Capaldi was performing in pubs by the age of 12, and at 18 his SoundCloud post was unexpectedly discovered by Ryan Walter (who later became his manager), who was browsing the internet for a musically gifted artist. Born in 1996, Lewis Capaldi rocketed to the top of the popular music world – he made music history by becoming the first artist to announce and sell out an arena tour before his debut album was released. And in 2017, his debut song “Bruises” on Spotify instantly received almost 28 million plays worldwide.
Critics have also paid tribute to the Scottish star’s professionalism, with four nominations at the 2020 British Music Awards, winning the Best Debut and the Song of the Year titles. The hit “Someone You Loved” had also been nominated at the Grammy Awards. So don’t miss the chance to hear the performer adored by European and American audiences on his first visit to the Baltic countries at Vingis Park in Vilnius.
