Secret Sounds Presents
LEWIS CAPALDI – Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent Tour
Sydney sold out – second and final show added!
Tickets on sale from 9am AEDT Friday 4 November at secretsounds.com
Lewis Capaldi has officially sold out the Sydney date on his anticipated Australian tour in July 2023 – less than a week after tickets going on sale. In response to this overwhelming demand, Secret Sounds have added a second and final Sydney show to the tour which will see the relatable and down-to-earth crooner kick off his Australian shows at Qudos Bank Arena on Friday 7 July. Tickets to this new date will go on sale from 9am AEDT Friday 4 November.
This exciting news for Sydney-siders comes after Capaldi instantly sold out his Melbourne date last week, with a second show at Rod Laver Arena on Friday 14 July added in response.
Lewis Capaldi announced that he would be touring Australia two weeks ago, alongside sharing the news that his new album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent will be released on Friday 19 May 2023 on EMI Records. The July 2023 tour will mark his first performances down under since early 2020, when he quickly sold out his headline shows and won hearts across the country at Falls Festival. Prior to this, he toured Australia in 2018, delivering an unforgettable festival set at Splendour in the Grass. His 2023 tour will see him arrive with a host of new songs to perform from the new album, alongside crowd favourites.
Capaldi made his eagerly awaited return in September with new single ‘Forget Me’, giving fans a taste of new music to come. The new record will follow his 2019 full-length debut, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent — which peaked at No. 7 on the ARIA Albums Chart and featured the hit singles ‘Someone You Loved’ and ‘Before You Go’.
An auspicious start to the next phase of his career, ‘Forget Me’ made Capaldi just one of a handful of artists this year to have a single go straight in at No. 1 in its first week in the UK, and saw him equal Adele in accomplishing a hat-trick of UK No. 1 singles. ‘Forget Me’ was shortly followed by a true spectacle of a music video that saw Lewis re-enact Wham’s 1983 hit ‘Club Tropicana’ shot-for-shot.
Capaldi’s debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent sold over 10 million copies worldwide, propelling him from bedroom musician to superstar. The record spawned two ARIA top ten singles including ‘Someone You Loved’: a platinum-selling ballad that earned a GRAMMY nomination for Song of the Year, won the Song of the Year prize at the Brit Awards, and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and US Top 40 charts.
With all shows to the Scottish singer-songwriter’s tour selling fast, Sydney fans are encouraged to jump on tickets to the second date as soon as they’re available from 9am AEDT Friday 4 November. All other shows are on sale now at secretsounds.com.
