Lewis Capaldi is returning to New Zealand next year to perform concerts at Auckland's Spark Arena on July 18 and Wellington's TSB Arena on July 19.

The Scottish singer, famed for song 'Before You Go', will be playing songs from his new album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, which is due to release in May 2023.

Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10am on Friday, October 28.

The concerts will be his first in Aotearoa since his last tour in early 2020. 

Last month the 'Someone You Loved' hitmaker went public about his Tourette's Syndrome diagnosis because he didn't want people to notice his tics and think he had a substance abuse problem.

"I have been diagnosed with Tourette's," he said in September.

"I wanted to speak about it because I didn't want people to think I was taking cocaine or something.

"My shoulder twitches when I am excited, happy, nervous or stressed. It is something I am living with. It is not as bad as it looks."
