His Scarborough Open Air Theatre gig is presented by Cuffe and Taylor. Director Peter Taylor said: “Lewis Capaldi is fast becoming one of the most critically acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation and we are delighted he is coming to Scarborough OAT this summer.

“He is one of the UK’s most sought after live performers with a string of sell out concerts throughout 2018 and again in 2019.

“Lewis’ debut album is going to be one of the records of the year and so we cannot wait to welcome him here. I am sure music fans will be beating a path to the Yorkshire coast in theirdroves for what promises to be an unmissable show.”
