George Ezra reveals he has quit drinking

The singer-songwriter reveals he's given up alcohol : 'I had to stop, I couldn't keep up'

George Ezra has revealed that he has quit drinking alcohol in a bid to live a more healthy lifestyle.

Ezra was recently forced to postpone gigs in Manchester and Glasgow due to exhaustion on doctor’s orders.

Speaking to the The Sun, the singer said: “I had to pull two shows in the UK so I didn’t drink for four weeks. I realised I’d been drinking for 18 months. I had to stop, I couldn’t keep up. I had to chill out… It got to the point that even if I wanted to carry on, I couldn’t. I was exhausted.”


Ezra also revealed that he was glad to avoid the recent Brit Award afterparties.

He added: “I saw photos of other people leaving official parties and was glad I wasn’t there. That’s why I went to my mate’s pub instead. That’s the way to do it.”

George Ezra appeared on US TV’s Saturday Night Live over the weekend (March 28). The Bristol-bred songwriter performed his breakthrough single ‘Budapest’, as well as ‘Blame It On Me’. Watch his performance of ‘Budapest’ here.
