Lewis Capaldi - OVO Hydro 24th January 2023

"Ooooohhhh Lewis Capaaaaaaalllldiiii"........

It was a winters Tuesday evening and it was a homecoming concert for Scotlands biggest star at the OVO Hydro, but before the review commences, I would like to share a little story about something that happened back in yesteryear.

It was the summer of 2015, I was covering a festival called Electric Fields in Dumfries and Galloway for a publisher called Ravechild, I just watched Root System, a personal favourite from Scotlands unsigned scene and the next act that I planned to cover wasnt due to start until an hour later at the main stage, I thought "this guitarist is on at the smaller stage in 15 minutes, I’ll just hang about here and catch him".

15 minutes later, a then 19 year old guitarist came onto the stage, and that guitarist was none other than Lewis Capaldi, as he started to play his set in front of preciously 20 people.

Fast forward to today, Capaldi is now a worldwide phenomenon, playing in front of 40,000 at TRNSMT, winning BRIT Awards, scoring 4 UK number 1s and topping the US Billboard with his smash hit “Someone you Lovedâ€Â
