2019 opened in the midst of Capaldi finding himself plauded from seemingly every critic spanning each and every corner of the globe, his debut album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’ instantly becoming the fastest selling debut from any artist for over 6 years, rocketing to number 1, where it’s now spent no less than 10 weeks at the top of the chart and on course to be the longest running top 10 album in UK chart history
There’s no better introduction to his debut than the worldwide Number 1 smash hit single ‘Someone You Loved’, which spent 7 weeks as the UK’s Number 1 single shattering chart history at every turn. The story soon became familiar all over Europe, Australia and finally, America, where it topped the Billboard Hot 100 propelling Capaldi in elite territory joining the likes of Adele and Ed Sheeran in a handful of artists from the UK to reach the summit of the American chart.
With a record breaking 6 back-to-back completely sold out headline tours all over the world in less than 2 years, his ascent is quite simply unprecedented, his rapidly developing fanbase ravenous, outstripping the supply for tickets for every show. From humble beginnings filling pubs merely 18 months ago to Arena tours sold out in seconds, all of which happened before the release of his debut album, walking territory which no artist in history has ever walked before.
