British star Dua Lipa to perform one-off show in Abu Dhabi
The award-winning singer will play at the du Forum in February
British rising star Dua Lipa is coming to the capital – the singer will perform at the du Forum on Saturday, February 24.
She’s only 22 years old but has already sold more than one million copies of her self-titled debut album, Dua Lipa, and has won several awards. She was crowned Best New Act at the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards and won the Best Pop Video – UK award at the 2017 UK Music Video Awards. Yesterday, it was announced she’s nominated for five 2018 Brit Awards, including for Best Album.
She was also the most streamed artist in 2017 on Spotify, beating the likes of Rihanna and Taylor Swift. Check out her hit New Rules below.
Lipa was born in the UK, but moved to Kosovo when she was 13 (her Albanian parents are from there). But she return to England two years later and started her quest to be a music star, by posting performances on social media. By 2016 she’d released her first single through Warner Bros, Be The One, in the UK. It reached No9 in the charts.
She’ll be performing at those Brit Awards in the UK on February 21 and will then head to Abu Dhabi for her one-off gig three days later. Tickets will go on sale January 16, from 12pm.
