Lewis Capaldi Thanks Fans After O2 Arena Shows Sell Out In 'One Second'
Lewis Capaldi's BRIT Awards hangover has only just about worn off, and already the singer's back on top form.
Today (21 February), he took to Twitter to thank fans after two of his shows at the O2 Arena sold out in 'one second'.
He wrote: "We just sold out 2 nights at the O2 Arena in London in 1 second. 20,000 of us each night f******. I have no words. Thank you all so much x."
The 'Someone You Love' singer announced the two shows earlier this week. Tickets went on sale at 11am this morning and were snapped up almost instantly.
He'll be performing at the London venue on 2 October and 4 October, marking his biggest headline shows to date.
The dates will mark Capaldi's final shows of the year, following a string of shows that make up his UK arena tour.
Each ticket that is bought comes with a LIVELINE service, offering special access for fans who suffer from anxiety issues or emotional difficulties.
The campaign will provide those who need it a dedicated email address and the opportunity to meet with team members at the venue.

NME reports each ticket bought includes a 50p donation which goes towards 'providing a fully qualified team at venues who are expertly trained and qualified in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other general mental health enquiries fans may have'.
Speaking about the service last April - when tickets for certain dates of the tour sold out in just 10 minutes - the singer said: "I always get tonnes of messages from people online who've said they want to come to my shows, but can't because they're struggling massively with anxiety, or are just generally afraid they'll have a panic attack during the show.
"I really wanted to put something in place to help those people feel comfortable and offer them support, to allow them to experience the shows...
"I just hate to feel that anyone's anxiety is making them miss out on anything they wanted to.
"LIVELIVE is my attempt at helping making these shows enjoyable for as many of those people who've been supporting this journey for me."
The news arrives just after Capaldi's victory at the 2020 BRIT Awards, where he performed to the crowds and picked up accolades for British Single and Best New Artist.
Although some fans criticised him for making a speech with a bottle of Buckfast in his hand, Capaldi hit back at the haters, writing in response to the comments: "Imagine having a drink on my first night off in months after winning two BRIT awards, can you believe it?!"
