Poor Lewis Capaldi. The superstar singer has been struck down with bronchitis and has had to postpone his upcoming concerts in Zurich and Milan 'leaving him absolutely devastated'.

Capaldi shared the gutting news on Twitter and wrote: “As lots of you know for the past few nights of tour I’ve been really struggling with my voice.

"Last night in Stockholm I tried my best to sing through the show even with it feeling really uncomfortable because I was desperate not to let any of you down.

“I’ve just been to see a voice specialist in Sweden who’s told me I’ve got Bronchitis and that I should be on vocal rest for at least 3 days to give me any chance of not damaging my voice and being able to continue touring.

“Milan, the show will now be on Wednesday May 31st 2023 and Zurich the show will now be on Wednesday 28th June 2023. All original tickets for the shows will be valid, you don’t need to do anything else.”

Fans responded: "I am devastated because I was honestly looking forward to see you in Milan but your health comes first!! Please rest and take care. See you in May!"

"Rest! We are so very proud of all your hard work! Take care of yourself so that you can continue to do what you love! Get well soon!" commented another.

A third penned: "Was going to see you tomorrow and would've hated knowing you pushed through a show being unwell just because you didn't want to let us down. Hope you feel better soon and you get some well deserved rest!"
