FANS IN FRANKFURT, Germany, stepped in for Lewis Capaldi on Tuesday night when the singer experienced a flare-up of tics from his Tourette’s syndrome. During the last song of the night and his biggest hit, “Someone You Loved,” the singer attempted to push through the bridge into the final chorus but eventually stepped back and let the audience take the lead altogether.
While the crowd sang out, Capaldi tossed his remaining guitar picks out to fans.
This isn’t the first time Capaldi has dealt with the side effects of Tourette’s during a concert. Last month, he told a crowd in Belfast, Northern Ireland, “You might see me twitching a little bit up here. Nothing to be worried about – I have Tourette’s.”
“I’m good, baby. I’m up here, I’m good,” he said. “I’m absolutely fine, everything’s good, I just twitch a little bit.”
The singer was only recently diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome, having shared the discovery last year.
