Dua Lipa has announced she will perform at Newcastle Arena next year.
The pop star has confirmed the tour as she revealed the name of her forthcoming album, 'Future Nostalgia', which will be released in 2020. Lead track, 'Don't Start Now' is already a hit, with 170m streams worldwide so far.
Dua will tour throughout Europe in 2020. Her dates include a show at Newcastle Utilita Arena on Saturday June 13, 2020. Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday December 6. They will be limited to four per person
Speaking about ‘Future Nostalgia', Dua said: “What I wanted to do with this album was to break out of my comfort zone and challenge myself to make music that felt like it could sit alongside some of my favourite classic pop songs, whilst still feeling fresh and uniquely mine. I was inspired by so many artists on the new record from Gwen Stefani to Madonna to Moloko to Blondie and Outkast, to name just a few.
Dua continues "Because of the time that I’d spent on the road touring with my band I wanted ‘Future Nostalgia’ to have a lot more of a live element, but mixed together with modern electronic production. My sound has naturally matured a bit as I’ve grown up but I wanted to keep the same pop sensibility as I had on the first record. I remember that I was on my way to a radio show in Las Vegas thinking about the direction for this new record and I realised that what I wanted to make was something that felt nostalgic but had something fresh and futuristic about it too."
Restrictions will be in place to try and stop touts re-selling tickets for inflated values. The name of the lead booker will be printed on each ticket. This name cannot be changed once the booking has been made.
The lead booker will be asked to present photo ID to gain entry into the venue.
Where the lead booker is purchasing more than their own ticket, each guest in the party must arrive with the lead booker at the venue on the night of the show.
Tickets will be on sale through Ticketmaster and the Arena box office.
