After an absolutely blinding gig at the International Arena recently, LEWIS CAPALDI is set to delight 30,000 fans with a massive headline show at Chepstow Racecourse this summer.
The BRIT Award-winning singer-songwriter brings his 2023 World Tour to the Monmouthshire racecourse on Saturday July 1st for what will be his biggest ever gig in Wales.
Joining Lewis will be Norwegian singer songwriter and pop powerhouse SIGRID, and Illinois-born singer songwriter DAVID KUSHNER is today added to the line-up.
Tickets are available now HERE.
The Chepstow date is part of Lewis’ Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent World Tour which visits no fewer than 18 countries.
Fans went into a frenzy to secure tickets when the tour was initially announced with the Cardiff show a complete sell-out.
Wish You The Best marks Lewis’s fifth UK number one single, following Pointless, which topped the charts in January, and previous hits Someone You Loved – the UK’s most streamed song of all time – Before You Go and Forget Me. His second album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent will be released in May.
Speaking about the Chepstow date, Lewis said……..
“Buzzing to be coming back to Wales for what will be my biggest show there ever! We had a brilliant time in Cardiff and now I get to do it all over again outside in the sunshine.
“I can’t wait for that so get your tickets and I’ll see you in the summer.”
Since her debut album Sucker Punch Sigrid has become a global phenomenon – lighting up stages around the world with her progressive brand of synth-pop.
From winning the BBC Music Sound of 2018 to conquering Glastonbury and headlining her own sold-out tours, Sigrid’s anthems Don’t Kill My Vibe, Sucker Punch and worldwide smash hit Strangers have seen her rack up billions of streams and capture the hearts and minds of the masses. Her most recent album How To Let Go was hailed as “life-affirming” (NME) and “an impressive pop statement” (Clash) hitting the number 1 spot in her native Norway and number 2 in the UK.
David Kushner’s music has amassed streams in the hundreds of millions, ahead of and following the 2022 release of his debut EP Footprints I Found. His TikTok following has reached the 3million mark, and his single Miserable Man inspired hundreds of thousands of creates on the social media platform, alongside 66million Spotify streams.
Lewis Capaldi is the third headliner announced for what promises to be a weekend of very special gigs alongside LIONEL RICHIE on Friday June 30 and GEORGE EZRA on Sunday July 2.
TikTok breakthrough star and triple BRIT Awards 2023 nominee CAT BURNS will be supporting George.
BRIT School alumni Cat Burns – who performed her smash 2022 hit single Go at the BRIT Awards – went from busking on London’s Southbank to becoming a TikTok sensation during lockdown, with inspiration taken from pop, gospel and guitar-led indie music.
Also joining George Ezra will be Mercury-nominated indie rockers The Big Moon. The alt-pop four-piece released their third album Here is Everything to critical acclaim last October and have dates across the UK festival calendar this summer.
Opening the night will be Limerick-based three-piece outfit Kingfishr who have quickly established themselves as one of the rising prospects in Irish music.
The weekend is presented by Chepstow Racecourse with live music promoters Live Nation and Cuffe and Taylor.
Promoter Peter Taylor from Cuffe and Taylor told us…..
“It is fantastic to be able to reveal Lewis Capaldi is heading to Chepstow Racecourse for his biggest ever Welsh show to date. We have worked with Lewis on several sold-out shows. Not only is he a brilliant singer-songwriter, he is also a fantastic entertainer and the crowd are in for a treat.
“We are also delighted Cat Burns is supporting George Ezra. Cat is a major breakthrough artist who is destined to go far and is the perfect addition to the bill alongside The Big Moon and Kingfishr. This will be a very special weekend of live music.”
Getting music fans ready to party All ‘Weekend’ Long, on Friday June 30 will be multi-award winner Lionel Richie.
Lionel’s shows are world renowned for their party atmosphere, with fans set to enjoy timeless mega-hits and singalong classics such as Three Times A Lady, Truly, Say You Say Me and All Night Long. His music is part of the fabric of pop music and Richie has sold more than 125 million albums worldwide and is an Oscar, Golden Globe, and four-time Grammy Awards winner.
He will be supported by chart-topping pop trio SUGABABES, the award-winning hitmaker GABRIELLE and blues, soul and rock artist KEVIN DAVY WHITE.
George Ezra will close the weekend with his headline show on Sunday July 2. George is one of the UK’s most acclaimed songwriters and live performers. After two blockbuster albums – Wanted On Voyage (2014) and Staying At Tamara’s (2018), both of which reached Number 1 in the UK and sold millions around the world – he released third album The Gold Rush Kid last year which once again enjoyed the Number 1 spot in the UK and includes the hit singles Anyone For You and Green Green Grass.
Chepstow Racecourse executive director Phil Bell added………
“The team at Cuffe and Taylor and Live Nation have brought together an exceptional line-up of established and rising stars to celebrate live music with what promises to be an amazing weekend here in the Welsh borders.”

After taking a year off touring, LEWIS CAPALDI was more than eager to get back out on the road. With a new album under his belt, the follow up to the record-breaking debut ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’ he was desperate to get out and play us songs from it, which is exactly what he did in Cardiff last week.
Prior to the start of this tour and release of the album, Lewis said……..
“Hello everyone, it’s Lewis Capaldi here. It’s been a while, hope you’re all staying safe!
“Just want to start off this wee note by saying how class it is to see things looking more hopeful for the world after an absolutely horrible year. I’ve been looking back at the madness of my life for the last little while and feeling really grateful to be able to call this music carry on a job for the past few years.
“I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been terrified about making my next album since the moment I finished ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’.
“I’ve been writing loads of tunes I’m really excited about and I can’t wait for you to hear them. I really want to make sure whatever I put out next is the absolute best it can be, partly for my own sanity, cause I’m going to have to sing these songs every night for the next few years on tour, but ultimately for all of you who made the first album everything it was.
