DUA LIPA ANNOUNCES HEADLINING TOUR DATES
AHEAD OF GOVERNORS BALL AND BONNAROO
SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM AVAILABLE JUNE 2nd
Pop sensation Dua Lipa announces her first-ever North American headlining tour ahead of her debut performances at Governors Ball and Bonnaroo this summer. The tour will kick off February 24th in Chicago, running through March 17th in San Francisco, with stops in major cities across the U.S. and Canada including New York and Los Angeles (see below for full list of tour dates).
From Lollapalooza and SXSW 2016, to her largest crowds to date at Glastonbury and Wireless Festival in the UK, and her recent US tour dates supporting Troye Sivan, Dua Lipa's live shows have mesmerized audiences around the world and gained her a frenzy of media attention. Labeled early on as an "Artist to Know" byRolling Stone and an "Artist to Watch" by Complex, Dua is a special kind of talent, and her smoky vocals and electric live shows only underscore NPR's claim that "she might be a natural-born pop star."
Now, with Dua's self-titled album set for a June 2nd release, 2017 is set to be the songstress' best year yet. Fuse declares that the album "has all the makings to spin 2017 into gold," and it has been impressively featured on TIME's "20 Albums to Watch," Billboard's "2017 Music Preview: 40 Most Anticipated Albums," and InStyle's "11 Albums We Can't Wait to Hear in 2017." Additionally, her NPR Noteworthy feature has been voted by listeners as one of their favorites of the year for 2016. Overseas, Dua has been nominated for "Best Female" and "Best New Artist" at the NME Awards, and was crowned "Newcomer of the Year" at the European Festival Awards. During the European Border Breakers Awards (EBBA), Dua was one of only 10 global recipients of the EBBA and won the "Public Choice" award - the biggest award of the night, voted upon by fans.
Dua released her first official U.S. single "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" ahead of
her album, which has been met with critical acclaim. The track has soared to #24 on the pop radio chart, and its official video has amassed over 23 million views. With so much success under her belt before her album is even released, it is safe to say SPIN is correct in their prediction that "the world is about to find out just how far the singer's distinctively husky voice and take-no-guff attitude will propel her. (Let's just say it would be ill-advised to bet against her.)"
