Pop icon and global superstar Dua Lipa has added extra tour dates to the Australian leg of her 2022 Future Nostalgia tour due to overwhelming demand.

After her first shows in Sydney and Melbourne quickly sold out, fans of the Levitating hitmaker will now be able to attend a second event at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on November 9 and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on November 12.

Tickets for the new dates will go on sale 11am local time on Monday, September 27, while all other Australian dates are on sale now.

Full information for tickets and VIP packages are available at livenation.com.au.


Dua Lipa first announced the Australian leg of her tour earlier this week, saying she is “beyond excited” to come Down Under.

“It’s been way too long, but I promise, we are going to have one heck of a party,” she said in a statement.

The additional tour dates come after extreme demand from fans online who were unable to purchase tickets in the first sale.

“Manifesting a second Dua Lipa concert in Melbourne so I can get tickets,” one user tweeted, with another adding, “Please put on a second Sydney show! I’m heartbroken.”

While Dua’s last visit to Australia was in March 2020 when she headlined Sydney’s Mardi Gras Party, the new tour marks her first live shows in the country since 2018.

Australians have a clear love for the UK pop star, with her latest album Future Nostalgia peaking at #1 and still remaining in the top 10 on the ARIA charts 77 weeks after its release.

The album produced a string of hit singles, including Don’t Start Now (7x Platinum), Levitating (3x Platinum), Break My Heart (3x Platinum), Physical (2x Platinum), We’re Good (Platinum) and Hallucinate (Gold).

Her recent collaboration with Elton John and Pnau, Cold Heart, is currently #4 on the ARIA Singles Chart and her latest single, Love Again, is playing across multiple networks.

Future Nostalgia also earned six Grammy nominations, taking home Best Pop Vocal Album, as well as winning British Album of the Year at the 2021 Brit Awards.
