FOLLOWING his triumphant set at a sold-out TRNSMT Festival this weekend, Lewis Capaldi’s signed Chewbacca mask has been put up for auction with funds set to go to Scottish mental health charity Tiny Changes.
The charity, which was was set up by Frightened Rabbit band members and family, will benefit from the top eBay bid which was set up by TRNSMT festival organisers DF Concerts.
Capaldi responded to his ongoing feud with Noel Gallagher on Sunday when he walked onto the TRNSMT Main Stage wearing a Chewbacca mask and performed ‘Don’t Lok Back in Anger’ for the adoring crowd. He recently changed his Twitter name to Chewis Capaldi after Gallagher said that Lewis should “enjoy his 15 minutes” of fame as well as calling him “f*cking Chewbacca”. Attracting one of the biggest crowds of the weekend, the Scottish star performed a massive set full of hits from his debut album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’.
Festival director Geoff Ellis said: “Lewis Capaldi is part of TRNSMT’S story and having played the King Tut’s Stage Powered by Utilita Energy in the opening year in 2017, graduating to a daytime slot on the Main Stage in 20188 and playing to one of the biggest crowds we have seen at the festival last night. Capaldi fever is sweeping the world and I was delighted to watch his outstanding set from side of stage last night – it’s a performance I will remember for years to come.
“The Tiny Changes Charity is close to ur hearts, here at DF Concerts, and I hope we manage to raise a great amount of money for a charity that’s work is very important, not only within the music industry, but for raising awareness about children and young people’s mental health” .
About to hit the £6000 mark, you can bid on the mask here.
