Dua Lipa performs at the Grammys in March, where she won Best Pop Vocal Album.
Dua Lipa announced the “Future Nostalgia Tour” on Monday, her first North American trek in support of her acclaimed 2020 album of the same name.
The pop star’s 28-date arena outing begins at Miami’s FTX Arena on February 9 and concludes at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on April 1. Along the way, Lipa will hit major arenas including Atlanta’s State Farm Arena (February 12), New York City’s Madison Square Garden (March 1), Chicago’s United Center (March 9), Denver’s Ball Arena (March 15) and Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena (March 31).
Megan Thee Stallion will support dates in Denver, Tulsa (March 17) and Phoenix (March 20). Caroline Polachek will support all tour dates, and Lolo Zouaï will support dates other than Denver, Tulsa and Phoenix. The tour will be produced by Ceremony London, promoted by Live Nation and sponsored by Truly Hard Seltzer.
“I’m so thrilled to tour again and see my angels in person! How amazing that we all get to dance and celebrate together once again,” Lipa said in a statement. “When I was writing Future Nostalgia, I imagined the songs being played in clubs on nights out with your mates. I’m so excited that this fantasy is finally coming true. I can’t wait to experience these songs with you together live!”
Lipa released Future Nostalgia, her second studio album on March 27, 2020; prior to the pandemic, she had announced a European tour in support of the record for late spring. Future Nostalgia spawned two No. 2 hits on Billboard‘s Hot 100, “Don’t Start Now” and “Levitating,” as well as “Break My Heart,” which peaked at No. 13 on the chart. In March, the RIAA certified the album platinum.
Lipa, who won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 2019, won Best Pop Vocal album in 2021 and was nominated for Record, Album and Song of the Year.
The pop star will finally embark on her anticipated European arena tour following her 2022 North American trek, which will also include a headlining set at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival.
Given her explosion in popularity during the pandemic, Lipa will play substantially bigger rooms on this North American tour than she did the last time she played the continent. According to Pollstar data, the most tickets Lipa has previously sold for a North American show was at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on June 30, 2018, where she moved 8,504 tickets for a gross of $355,908. Two days later, she sold 6,954 tickets at Seattle’s WaMu Theater for a gross of $196,370.
