Following an incredible weekend of music for 150,000 TRNSMT Festival fans, organisers DF Concerts have released a bid for the signed Lewis Capaldi Chewbacca mask with funds set to go to the Scottish charity Tiny Changes.
The charity, which was set up by Frightened Rabbit band members to focus on mental health and making tiny changes, will benefit from the top eBay bid which was set-up by one of the festival organisers working backstage at the event who gave Lewis a loan of his mask.
Lewis Capaldi responded to his ongoing feud with Noel Gallagher live on the TRNSMT Main Stage on Sunday night, as he walked on to a tongue-in-cheek video montage wearing a Chewbacca mask.
Capaldi recently changed his social media profile picture and name to ‘Chewis Capaldi’ after Noel Gallagher said that Lewis should ‘enjoy his 15 minutes’ of fame as well as calling him ‘f***ing Chewbacca’.
Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: “Lewis Capaldi is part of TRNSMT’s story 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 2018 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 very close to our 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.”
