Lewis Capaldi makes €58k donation to Irish charity after cancelling Dublin gig


Lewis Capaldi’s love of Ireland has been well documented, from crediting us with giving him his start in the music industry, to his close friendships with Niall Horan and Barry Keoghan.

So naturally Lewis, and fans, were devastated when her had to cancel his Olympia Theatre gig which was scheduled for this evening.

But the Scotsman more than made up for it with his generous donation to a Irish based charity. The singer donated €58,000 to the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

His performance at the Olympia Theatre was a part of FM104’s The Gig which was raising funds for the charity.

Lewis was forced to cancel the concert last minute due to health issues.

FM104 explained in a statement: “Unfortunately we have made the very difficult decision to postpone FM104’s The Gig, tomorrow night.”

“Lewis is unable to attend due to illness and is incredibly sorry to let you all down.”

“He will be making a person donation of £50k [around €58,000] to the ISPCC.”
