He shared: ‘Hello everyone. First of all thank you to Glastonbury for having me, for singing along when I needed it and for all the amazing messages afterwards. It really does mean the world,’ he began.
‘The fact that this probably won’t come as a surprise doesn’t make it any easier to write, bit I’m very sorry to let you know I’m going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future.
‘I used to be able to enjoy every second of shows like this and I’d hoped 3 weeks away would sort me out.

‘I know I’m incredibly fortunate to be able to take some time out when others can’t and I’d like to thank my amazing family, friends, team, medical professionals and all of you who’ve been so supportive every step of the way through the good times and even more during this past year when I’ve needed it more than ever.
‘I’m so incredibly sorry to everyone who had planned to come to a show before the end of the year but I need to feel well to perform at the standard you all deserve.
‘Playing for you every night is all I’ve ever dreamed of so this has been the most difficult decision of my life. I’ll be back as soon as I possible can. All my love always, Lewis.’

Tourette’s experts told MailOnline it was not possible to know when Lewis would be back performing because every individual has different treatment needs.
They also praised his ‘courage’ in ‘openly addressing his condition’, labelling it ‘an inspiration’ to many other sufferers – but warned his recovery cannot be rushed.
Lewis had already taken three weeks off before his gig on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, but recently admitted it was not enough and that he was ‘still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette’s’.
The performer became emotional as he started losing his voice during the performance, prompting him to apologise to the crowds – who then helped him finish his songs in heartwarming footage that quickly went viral.
