Dua Lipa today announced she will headline The Olympia Theatre on April 10th 2018.

Dua Lipa latest single ‘New Rules, continues to dominate the Irish Singles Charts, spending a fifth week at the Number 1 spot and is now certified double-platinum and Her self-titled album remaining in the Top 10 of the album charts for the last 6 weeks.

The mega-viral video for ‘New Rules’, directed by Henry Scholfield, has amassed over 260 million views since going live just two months ago. The video explores the bond between friends and their unity when one is going through a breakup. Having previously worked with Scholfield on the ‘Lost In Your Light’ video, Dua said “I’ve worked with Henry before and he does really cool work with choreography. He just has such brilliant ideas.”

‘New Rules’ dubbed “a perfect slice of summer pop” by The Guardian, the single is Dua’s fifth to be taken from acclaimed debut album. The news comes after a whirlwind summer that saw Dua play Longitude Festival to a sold-out crowd in Marlay Park and she is currently on tour in the US with Bruno Mars.
