Lewis Capaldi is worried Germans don’t like his music after claiming his shows aren’t selling well in the country.
The Scottish singer recently announced his biggest dates yet, which will see him visit venues in the UK & Ireland, Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand. UK dates begin in January 2023.
The Dates will be touring his upcoming album, Broken from desire to be sent heavenly, which is due on May 19, 2023.
However, the singer recently revealed in an interview that his ticket sales for the dates in Germany were “miserable”.
According to the singer, German dates are the only ones that don’t “sell well”.
“People in Germany are really not enthusiastic about my music, I have to say at the moment. Ticket sales are miserable. It’s a word I don’t use often,” he said while being interviewed by Ken Bruce BBC radio 2.
“Everywhere else you’re like, ‘Oh, this is going to sell out, or this is going to sell really well, blah blah blah,’ and you can kind of see them go up.”
He continued: “The show in Berlin has 17,000 spectators, the arena can take that. And I sold 1,373 tickets.”
“Come to Germany. Get off your butts and do something,” the singer joked.
Capaldi currently plays in the federal states of Berlin, Stuttgart and Munich.
