On Monday, global pop superstar Dua Lipa announced the North American leg of her anticipated “Future Nostalgia Tour” for 2022, in support of the Grammy-winning album of the same name. The arena tour makes 28 stops across the U.S., including Dua’s first ever headline show at Madison Square Garden in New York City and the iconic Forum in Los Angeles.
The “Future Nostalgia Tour” will also feature support from Caroline Polachek and Lolo Zouaï, with Megan Thee Stallion joining on select dates.
Dua visits Buffalo’s KeyBank Center on March 5. Zouaï will support.
Tickets and VIP upgrade packages go on sale here beginning at noon Friday, Sept. 17. All state and local regulations at the time of the event will be enforced.
“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,” Dua said. “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!”
The long-awaited “Future Nostalgia Tour,” produced by Ceremony London, promoted by Live Nation and sponsored by Truly Hard Seltzer, will be the first time Dua connects her live vision for this album in-person with fans. Previously, the superstar was able to connect with fans during her record-smashing livestream extravaganza “Studio 2054,” which had over 5 million viewers during its initial airing and featured special guests Angele, Bad Bunny, Elton John, FKA Twigs, J Balvin, Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus and Tainy. Dua is already slated to tour the EU in 2022, making this her first world tour run since breaking records during quarantine with her Platinum-certified sophomore album “Future Nostalgia.”
“Future Nostalgia” is the longest-running top 10 album by a female artist on the Billboard 200 this year and was the No. 1 most-streamed album of 2020 on Spotify. It landed on the year-end “Best Of” lists of everyone from Rolling Stone to Billboard and Pitchfork, and spawned multiple worldwide hit singles, including the No. 1 tracks “Break My Heart,” “Levitating” – which is still topping the charts and is the longest-running song ever on Spotify’s “Today’s Top Hits” playlist – and the four-times-Platinum lead single “Don’t Start Now,” which broke Dua’s personal best record of weeks at No. 1 at Top 40 radio. It is the most streamed track in history on Spotify’s “Today’s Top Hits playlist.”
In addition to breaking radio records, Dua is also a dominate force on streaming platforms, topping Spotify’s artist chart as the most streamed female artist on the platform and is currently the fourth-biggest artist overall with over 65 million monthly listeners. “Future Nostalgia” now has more than 7 billion streams across all platforms worldwide.
Due received six nominations at the 2021 Grammys, including Record, Song and Album of the Year. She is now a three-time Grammy winner, having received awards for Best Pop Vocal Album this year and for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording in 2019. “Future Nostalgia” was the follow-up to her eponymous 2017 debut, which is certified Platinum, spawned six Platinum tracks, and made Dua the first female artist in Brit Awards history to pick up five nominations (with two wins for British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist).
Born in Paris to a French mother and Algerian father, singer, songwriter and producer Lolo Zouaï (zoo-EYE) moved to the Sunset District of San Francisco as a young child when her parents won the Visa lottery. After high school, Lolo spent some time alone back in Paris before relocating to New York City with her mother. It was there that Zouaï wrote her 2018 breakout single, “High Highs to Low Lows,” which propelled her into a series of independent singles, videos and headline shows around the world, ultimately leading to the release of her anticipated debut album in April 2019.
Since the release of her album, “High Highs to Low Lows,” Lolo has sold-out shows across 14 different countries, amassed over 200 million streams worldwide, and appeared in global campaigns for COACH, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas and Nike.
