Dua Lipa Has Just Announced An Abu Dhabi Concert

28 Oct 2018

And it's happening very soon!

Art and music fans, this one is for you. 

Dua Lipa is set to return to the UAE to headline a full week of events celebrating Louvre Abu Dhabi’s one-year anniversary. 

It will be four days of thrilling exhibitions, family activities, children’s workshops, spoken art performances and concerts, which will take place from 8-11 November. 

The British singer and songwriter will headline an exclusive performance at Louvre Abu Dhabi’s concert village on 11 November 2018, one year after the museum opened its doors to the public.

Expect the most streamed artist of 2017 to perform hit singles, New Rules and One Kiss. Tickets cost Dhs200 and include free entry to the museum from 2pm to 6pm. The doors of the concert village will open from 6pm with DJ sets before the show.

This isn't the first time Dua Lipa has performed in the capital. She performed at the Du Forum, Yas Island in February this year. 

But that isn't all that's happening. 

From 9-10 November, a series of pop-up performances titled Spoken Art, directed by Dorian Paul Rogers, will see seven spoken-word poets perform from 1-6 PM across the museum, from the permanent galleries to under the dome. The poets are inspired by artworks in Louvre Abu Dhabi galleries; Jayzus Zain and Qutouf Yahia from Sudan, Safwa Mohammed and Jorge Monterrosa from the US, Chamma AlBastaki from the UAE, Aathma Dious from India and Danabelle Gutierrez from the Philippines.
