Lewis Capaldi has been forced to cancel UK tour dates - including one in Norwich - due to serious problems with his voice.

The singer had been due to perform at the University of East Anglia's LCR tonight. But after he lost his voice at a gig in Brixton he released this statement via Instagram.

"Last night in Brixton was one of the hardest performances I’ve had to do and thank you so so much to everyone that came down and helped out with the tougher parts of some of those tunes. I’m so sorry that my voice wasn’t as up to it as I had hoped it would be. Hope I can come back and do that again for all of you. as you know I have been struggling with my voice since touring in America and the European leg and much of this UK stretch of this tour has been difficult. I’ve had many URGENT check ups with various ENT doctors and under each of their professional advisories I need to take it very easy and unfortunately have to cancel the next three shows in Norwich, Nottingham & Sheffield to save long term damage to my voice I desperately want to be able to perform every show I advertise and put on for you all. And I’m so sorry to everyone that bought tickets to the cancelled shows.

Fans with tickets for the gig are being advised to contact the outlet they originally bought them from for refunds.
