Global pop superstar Dua Lipa has announced details of her biggest headline tour to date.
The Future Nostalgia tour kicks off with a two-night stint at London’s The O2 on the 26 and 27 May 2020, before heading to Manchester, Leeds, Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and Dublin.
The newly announced run of shows is in support of Lipa’s forthcoming sophomore album Future Nostalgia, which is due for release in 2020.
Dua has teased fans on the direction of the new album with the release of one single so far, the disco-infused break-up banger Don’t Start Now. Check out the official video for the track below:
Future Nostalgia is the follow up to the musician’s 2017 Dua Lipa LP.
Her debut effort made the musician a household name across the globe, transforming the London-born singer-songwriter into one of the world’s biggest pop stars.
The album contains the hit singles IDGAF, Be The One, Blow Your Mind (Mwah) and New Rules, and has achieved platinum status in both the US and UK.
The success of her debut earned Lipa a record-breaking five nominations at the 2018 BRIT Awards, with the musician taking home the gongs for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.
Lipa followed up the success of her debut album by delving into electronic music with the collaboration single One Kiss, teaming up with Scottish producer Calvin Harris. The track topped the Official UK Singles Chart for eight consecutive weeks.
Following the success of One Kiss, Dua featured on the Silk City (Mark Ronson and Diplo) hit single Electricity.
Building on the sound that she’s developed with One Kiss and Electricity, Dua has spent most of 2019 in the studio working on her new album Future Nostalgia.
The record is due to drop next year and the singer-songwriter will head out on her biggest headline tour to date in 2020 to support the release.
