Dua Lipa announces Manila leg of ‘Radical Optimism’

Today, 3x GRAMMY and 7x BRIT Award-winning global pop powerhouse Dua Lipa announced the Asia leg of her upcoming Radical Optimism Tour, produced by Live Nation. The tour kicks off in Singapore on November 6th and stops in Jakarta, Manila, Tokyo, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok, before concluding in Seoul on December 4th.

Dua Lipa’s Radical Optimism Tour will happen at the Philippine Arena on November 13, 2024, Wednesday. Live Nation PH members can secure tickets during the Live Nation Presale on June 10, Monday, from 10 am until 11:59 pm (local time). Register for free at livenation.ph. General on sale will start on June 11, Tuesday at 12 pm (local time) via SM Tickets.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of Dua releasing her third album, Radical Optimism, which went straight to No. 1 in 11 countries, including the UK where it became the biggest album debut from a UK artist in 2024 and garnered the highest week one sales from a UK female artist since 2021. In the US, the album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart and No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking Dua’s biggest sales week yet. It was named a Critic’s Pick by The New York Times, who hailed it is “an album of nonstop ear candy,” along with Variety, who declared it is “a joyous blast of pop savvy.” Additionally, The New Yorker praised, “the instrumentation is a gleaming and impenetrable expanse, and the main attraction is Lipa,” and Vogue raved it is “a summery, self-assured slice of pop brilliance…[and] catchy as hell.”

Dua previously announced the first run of tour dates in support of Radical Optimism with shows in Berlin, Pula, and Nimes taking place in June, which sold out immediately. In addition, Dua will make her Pyramid Stage debut as the Friday night headliner at this year’s Glastonbury Festival on June 28th and will play a show at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on October 17th, the latter of which also sold out immediately.
