A HUGE Glastonbury crowd carried Lewis Capaldi through his Pyramid Stage performance on Friday as he battled problems with his voice.

Earlier this month, the Scottish singer cancelled all of his other commitments in June to allow himself time to “rest and recover” before playing at Worthy Farm. 

At the end of his set, the 26-year-old revealed he plans to take more time off, saying he may not be seen much for the “rest of the year”.

Despite this, the crowd was treated to the biggest hits from his two chart-topping albums while he was his usual funny self, even taking off his shirt at one point after asking if everyone else was as hot as he was.

His set list included ‘Forget Me’, the lead single off his second album Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent, ‘Before You Go’ and ‘Hold Me While You Wait’.

There was even an appearance from the Red Arrows, who flew overhead as Capaldi played the guitar and sang on stage. 

“Does that happen a lot? No?”, he asked.

“So they just thought ‘You know what that Lewis Capaldi set needs? Send in the Red Arrows’.”

After performing ‘Bruises’, he admitted he was having voice issues, telling the crowd: “I’m going to be honest everybody, but I’m starting to lose my voice up here, but we’re going to keep going and we’re going to go until the end.

“I just need you all to sing with me as loud as you can if that’s okay?”

He continued to apologise to the crowd and the Eavis family, but the oceans of fans kept cheering him on and chanting “Oh, Lewis Capaldi”.

Before his final song, he said: “I recently took three weeks off just because I’ve been non-stop the past year and I wanted to take a wee break from my head for my mental health.

“I wanted to come back and do Glastonbury because it’s obviously so incredible so I just want to thank you all for coming out.

“I was scared but you’ve really made me feel at ease so thank you very much for that.”

Capaldi added: “I feel like I’ll be taking another wee break over the next couple of weeks so you probably won’t see much of me for the rest of the year maybe even.

“But when I do come back, when I do see you, I hope you’re all still up for watching.”

He closed his set with an emotional rendition of Grammy-nominated hit ‘Someone You Loved’, with the crowd serenading him when he was unable to sing.
