Global pop superstar Dua Lipa today announced the North American leg of her highly-anticipated 2022 Future Nostalgia Tour, supporting the Grammy-winning album of the same name. The arena tour makes 28 stops across the U.S. and features support from Caroline Polachek and Lolo Zouaï, with Megan Thee Stallion joining on select dates. Lipa makes her first appearance at Orlando's Amway Center on Friday, February 11, 2022. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, September 17 at 12 p.m.
"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," says Lipa. "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 Lipa connects her live vision for this album in person with fans. Previously, the superstar was able to connect with fans during her record-smashing live-stream 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. She 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 number one most-streamed album of 2020 on Spotify. It landed on every magazine's year-end "Best Of" lists from Rolling Stone to Billboard and Pitchfork. It spawned multiple worldwide hit singles, including the number one tracks "Break My Heart," "Levitating," which is still topping the charts and is the longest-running song on Spotify's Today's Top Hits playlist, and U.S. four-time platinum lead single "Don't Start Now," which broke her personal best record of weeks at number one at U.S. Top 40 radio, and is the most-streamed track on Spotify's Today's Top Hits playlist in history.
Lipa is a dominant 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 over 7 billion streams across all platforms worldwide. After receiving 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. The certified platinum "Future Nostalgia" followed up to her eponymous 2017 debut, produced six platinum tracks, making Lipa the first female artist in Brit Awards history to pick up five nominations, earning two wins for British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist.
