Lewis Capaldi Was Forced to Stop Performing in Manchester After a Fight Broke Out in The Crowd at AO Arena


Last night (January 18) Lewis Capaldi was forced to interrupt a concert in Manchester because a fight broke out in the crowd.

The artist was singing “Hold me while You Wait” when he noticed a brawl that broke out in the standing area of AO Arena.

Footage seen by the Manchester Evening News shows security officers forcibly taking the woman away after a fight broke out.

In another clip, Capaldi was seen holding hands in front of his live band before the lights came on for security to intervene.



“They are breaking in the crowd there. Uh, we’ll have to get them out,” the singer said. “We can’t fight.”

He added: “What a strange song to fight. Bizarre, bizarre”, before relaunching a song from his 2019 debut album “Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent”.

A witness who observed the development of events told the Manchester Evening News that the woman appeared to have hit one of the guards and refused to leave the scene.

The incident occurred a few days after a brawl broke out at another Capaldi concert in Leeds. Capaldi also had to stop the show at First Direct Arena for a moment so that the security service could sort out the situation.

In other news, Capaldi recently revealed two pseudonyms he sometimes uses to write songs — Anita Jobbi and Suka Phatwan — which he uses for songs he considers “unsuccessful.”

He is currently on a tour of the UK and Europe, which will end in mid-March.
