Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi has announced a big outdoor gig in Manchester this summer.
Capaldi, who is currently number one in the singles charts with Pointless, will play Wythenshawe Park as part of his 2023 tour. It’s another big-name coup for the park, which will also host a concert by Noel Gallagher and the High-Flying Birds on the same weekend in August. Lewis will hold the Manchester gig a day before he plays the Reading Festival, followed by its partner festival, Leeds Festival.
The singer, who first hit the charts in 2017, is already playing Manchester’s AO Arena soon, in a sold-out gig on Wednesday 18 January, as part of his mega 2023 tour of the UK and Europe. He also played Castlefield Bowl in Manchester in 2022 as part of the Sounds of the City series of summer gigs.
And Lewis’ Wythenshawe Park gig will take place on Friday 25 August - one day before Noel’s band play the same venue, in a jam-packed bank holiday weekend of music which also features Primal Scream as support for High Flying Birds.
