Lewis Capaldi Made a Surprise Appearance at The Vamps’ London Gig

Lewis Capaldi recently made a surprise appearance at The Vamps‘ Kew The Music show in London.

Capaldi crashed the stage while The Vamps were performing ‘Risk It All’, the first of their three-track encore. This was the artist’s first public appearance ever since last month’s Glastonbury set which led him to cancel all his gigs for an indefinite amount of time.

Fan-captured footage uploaded on social media, shows the singer running on stage to hug The Vamps frontman, Bradley Will Simpson, and then went on to grab his mic to sing a few lyrics of the song.

Connor Ball, The Vamps bassist revealed in an interview that Capaldi came up to them at an after-party and began jamming to one of their lesser-known songs.

“We were at this afterparty with Lewis Capaldi and we were just chatting with him. We were just having a normal conversation and then, out of nowhere, he started screaming in mine and Brad’s ears this album track, off our first album. So like, not even a single, he just loves the song!”

Capaldi recently explained in a social media post, that he will be cancelling all his upcoming performances in order to look after his physical and mental well-being. The singer stated:  “The fact that this probably won’t come as a surprise doesn’t make it any easier to write, but I’m very sorry to let you know I’m going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future.”

He mentioned that he felt ready to return, but the ‘Glastonbury’ set made him believe that he still needed more time to recover.

“I used to be able to enjoy every second of shows like this and I’d hoped 3 weeks away would sort me out. But the truth is I’m still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette’s and on Saturday it became obvious that I need to spend much more time getting my mental and physical health in order, so I can keep doing everything I love for a long time to come.”
