British pop singer and songwriter Dua Lipa will be performing her smash hits “Hotter Than Hell”, “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)”, “Scared to Be Lonely”, “New Rules” and “IDGAF” in her first concert in Thailand being staged at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani on September 17.

Her singles established her as a rising star with both her debut single, “New Love” and its follow-up “Be the One” reaching the Top 10 in a dozen European territories. 

Last year, she had three simultaneously charting singles in the UK Top 15 with “Be the One”, “Scared to Be Lonely” with Martin Garrix, and “No Lie” with Sean Paul. 

With more than three million daily streams, Dua Lipa is listed among Top 10 artists on Spotify and has already accumulated three billion total streams across all platforms. Her wins at NME Awards and MTV EMA further strengthened the 22-year-old’s position as the brightest star in pop.

Now, with the release of her self-titled debut album, she reveals the full range of her ambitions. While recording her album in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, and London, Lipa was rapidly learning the fearlessness and confidence necessary to write great songs.

Born in London to Albanian parents from Kosovo, Dua Lipa attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School until she was 11, when she and her family moved back to Kosovo. Encouraged by her teacher, Lipa convinced her parents to let her move back to London when she was 15 to follow her aspirations to become a singer. She recorded covers and posted them on social media, hoping to find a way into the music business but instead was noticed by a modelling agency, which secured her an audition for a commercial for “The X Factor”, attracting the attention of Lana Del Rey's management team, who eventually signed her.
