“I do a lot of shoulder contractions , explained Lewis Capaldi in a live Instagram in 2022. The worst part is when I'm excited I have it, when I'm stressed I have it, when I'm happy I have it. It happens all the time. Some days it hurts more than others and some days it hurts less. I have Tourette, I have always had it apparently. Sometimes it's quite uncomfortable but it comes and goes. »
Lewis Capaldi receives support from his public
On February 21, during a concert in Germany, Lewis Capaldi suffered a seizure on stage. Unable to sing the rest of his song 'Someone you loved', he received the support of his audience, whose reaction was very moving. The 1,500 spectators present continued to sing when the artist could no longer do so. If this song is about a breakup, it has become a real declaration of love during this moment full of emotion.
The scene was filmed and the video quickly went viral on social media, as it has been viewed over 32 million times on TikTok. Afterwards, Lewis Capaldi posted a video in which he wanted to reassure his fans about his illness. He also thanked everyone present at the concert.
'I'm fine, it's just that it happens when I'm tired, nervous, excited, whatever, so it gets more intense. Thank you to everyone who came to the concert that night, it was fantastic. I love you very much ' , did he declare.
To conclude, and not without humor, the singer also added: “Take a ticket, come see me, come see my tics on stage! »Source : TikTok
