Dua Lipa has announced she will be returning to Manchester in October, performing at Manchester Academy. The Academy show comes in the midst of her twenty date UK tour in support of her self-titled debut album.
Dua Lipa’s Self-Titled Tour kicks off at The Dome in Brighton, before heading through the UK, visiting France, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and finishing at London’s historic Brixton O2 Academy.
The announcement comes ahead of the release of Dua Lipa’s self-titled debut album, which is due out on 2 June. “This whole album is me, who I am and how I want to be seen as an artist,” says Dua Lipa. “I want people to really get to know me, so the album is everything that has happened in my life so far, and every song tells a different story.”
And she explains that the album offers even more depth than her initial singles – . “I’ve been describing it as ‘dark pop’ because people have only heard the pop moments, but there are some really dark, singer-songwriter parts that I’m excited about,” she says.
Still early in her career, Dua Lipa has also been nominated for a wealth of awards by the BBC, MTV Europe and the Brits. She also scooped the Best New Artist award at the NME Awards and two European Border Breakers.
