Both Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa will be making stops at the newly opened UBS Arena on their upcoming tours. Dua Lipa will be embarking on tour on Feb. 9, with her date at UBS Arena in Belmont Park, N.Y. scheduled for Feb. 21. Eilish’s upcoming “Happier Than Ever Tour” kicks off on Feb. 3, and she will be performing at UBS Arena on Feb. 15.
Willow will be opening for Eilish on her date at UBS Arena, with the two heading to New York City for two nights at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 18 and 19. Dua Lipa’s added date at UBS Arena will see Caroline Polachek serving as the opener.
Eilish’s tour will also see Dora Jar, Duckwrth and Jessie Reyez joining along as openers for various dates. The “Happier Than Ever Tour” will also see stops in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Nashville, Detroit, Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, Seattle, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and more.
Dua Lipa’s openers include the likes of Megan Thee Stallion and Lolo Zouaï. The “Future Nostalgia Tour” will see stops in Miami, Atlanta, Nashville, Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit, New York City, Chicago, Denver, Phoenix, Seattle and more.
After having to cancel her “Where Do We Go World Tour” in 2020 after only performing three dates, Eilish was able to return to the stage this year for performances at festivals such as Life Is Beautiful, the iHeartRadio Music Festival, Austin City Limits and Global Citizen Live. During her ill-fated trek on “Where Do We Go,” Eilish grossed $1.5 million in Miami, $1.7 million in Orlando, Fla., and $1.6 million in Raleigh, N.C.
While Dua Lipa also performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in 2021, as well as toured with the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball, her upcoming “Future Nostalgia Tour” will be the singer’s first headlining trek in the United States since 2018. Her previous dates had seen her playing Auditoriums, grossing $126,832 for her date at Fillmore Auditorium in Denver and $355,908 for her show at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
UBS Arena which is owned by Pollstar‘s parent company, Oak View Group, opened in November 2021. The Arena is also the home of the National Hockey League team, the New York Islanders.
