Lewis Capaldi makes generous donation to ISPCC after postponing Dublin concert

Lewis Capaldi has made a generous donation to the ISPCC after pulling out of a Dublin charity gig on Monday.

The Scottish singer was due to headline FM104's The Gig in the 3Olympia Theatre on Monday, however, the event has now been postponed to a later, unconfirmed date.


The Gig was due to be an intimate performance, with just 1,600 fans in attendance. Support on the night was due to come from acts including Gavin James, Wild Youth, Aimee, and Jazzy.

The concert was being held in aid of the ISPCC, which helps raise funds for vulnerable youth in Ireland.

FM104 confirmed in a statement that although the event was postponed, Capaldi was making a very generous donation to the charity of £50,000.


In a statement on Sunday night, FM104 said: "Unfortunately we have made the very difficult decision to postpone FM104's The Gig tomorrow night. Lewis is unable to attend due to illness and is incredibly sorry to let you all down.

"He will be making a personal donation of £50k to the ISPCC. All ticket holders will be contacted as well as all information on refunds being available from the point of purchase.

"We wish our good pal Lewis the speediest of recoveries."

Capaldi has suffered various health issues in the past, describing a serious case of Vertigo just a few months ago. In September, Capaldi also announced that he has Tourette's syndrome.

Over the weekend, he told his followers he needed to step back and look after both his mental and physical health.

"I need to take a moment to rest and recover, to be at my best and ready for Glastonbury, and all of the other incredible shows coming up so that I'm able to continue doing what I love for a long time to come.


"I need to take these three weeks to be Lewis from Glasgow for a bit, spend some time with my family and friends, and do normal life things that are an important part of me feeling better. I hope everyone understands."
