Capaldi's dad stepped in to break the fight up

One eyewitness, who wished to remain anonymous, said the brawl had begun due to a dispute over two women standing during the gig.

"Lewis said: 'How can you get in a fight at a Lewis Capaldi Gig?', then he said: 'If you act like a **** fighting at my gig you get ****** out'.

She added that Capaldi's father then stepped in to try and break the fight up.

She said: "Two women were standing up in the grand circle, the people sat behind them weren't happy.

"A guy shouted 'you've bought seated tickets so sit down ya ****** doughnuts' and security instructed the women to sit down.

"They stood back up again and it was guaranteed to kick off."

Fight started after drink thrown

According to the eyewitness a shouting match ensued followed by a drink getting thrown, with one solitary security guard tasked with breaking the fight up.

She said: "The two women started fighting with each other, pulling hair and the men started throwing punches. There were about 10 people fighting.

"Lewis said: 'How can you get in a fight at a Lewis Capaldi Gig?', then he said: 'If you act like a **** fighting at my gig you get ****** out'.

"Then he said he only wants good ***** at his gig.

"He finished the show but we were distracted by the security looking for jackets and a phone belonging to the people who had been flung out.

"Great gig though, Lewis was hilarious throughout as always."
