Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, best known for 2019 breakout pop ballad Someone You Loved, will perform at Capitol Theatre on Jan 11 next year.

It will be his first time performing in Singapore.

Someone You Loved, first released as a single from his 2018 EP Breach, is among the songs which have stayed at the top of the UK Singles Charts for the longest time, having spent seven weeks at No. 1.

The song has also held steady on Singapore's Top 10 music charts since last month.

His debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, also topped the British album charts for six weeks after it was released in May.

The 22-year-old was nominated in the Critics' Choice category at this year's Brit Awards, but lost to singer Sam Fender.
