Lewis Capaldi fans were blown away when the singer popped up in Glasgow for an impromptu busking session. Check it out:


Even on the busy streets of a city, you don't expect to see your favourite pop star walking along beside you – let alone to play a few of their top hits.

But that's exactly what shoppers were treated to this afternoon (14 September).

The 25-year-old singer took to Buchanan Street in the Scottish hotspot with an acoustic guitar where he played a number of his tracks, including 'Before You Go'.

Capaldi also took the time to chat with the fans and take a few selfies, as demonstrated by a clip shared by TikTok user Danielle (@danielleorr922).

Alongside a photo of herself and the pop star, she offered up some footage of Capaldi singing 'Forget Me'.

Text over the clip reads: "Lewis Capaldi busking in Glasgow today!!"

In another video of the musical moment, one fan quipped: "@lewiscapaldi can you please explain to my boss why my lunch lasted way longer than it should have.

"It’s not everyday one of the hottest musicians is outside your office!"

Dozens of people have commented on the TikTok to share their praise for the singer, with one writing: "Keeping it real, that’s why we love him."

Another said: "He’s literally so humble, imagine being able to sell out world tours but busking in town?!?!?!! For free."

"Hope you threw him a few coins," joked a third, while a fourth said, "Never been so jealous."

Capaldi's been in the headlines a lot recently, and once again he's had people in stitches with his infectious sense of humour.

Just yesterday, in fact, he jokingly apologised to Lorraine after offering her 'seven inches of me' on her show.

It all started when he handed a gift to the host, and it quickly became clear what he meant as he promoted his new aforementioned single 'Forget Me'.

"There you go, my seven inch... record. Sorry," he said. "Yeah that's actually a Bastille record that's inside it so please don't open it, that's a mistake on our part."


Luckily the gift was much appreciated, with Lorraine saying 'I love vinyl' as she started going red in the face at the innuendo.

Fans watching Lorraine thought the moment was absolutely hilarious, with one describing it as 'classic comedy right there' and another saying they 'absolutely adore this man'.
