"Wowowowww summer tour dates start in 1 week, and I can't wait. So I thought why not add... MORE TOUR. Asia in November, it's been a long time coming, and I can't wait to be back," wrote the Cold Heart singer alongside a set of pictures and videos from her trip to Japan in November last year.

Dua Lipa’s Asia tour will kick off in Singapore on November 6. This will be followed by performances in Jakarta (November 9), Manila (November 13), Tokyo (November 16 and November 17), Taipei (November 20), Kuala Lumpur (November 23) and Bangkok (November 27) before concluding in South Korea’s Seoul on December 4. Her list of stops, however, does not feature India.

The November tour would mark Dua Lipa’s return to Manila for the first time since 2018. The tour announcement came on the heels of Dua Lipa’s third album Radical Optimism on May 3.

The first track from the album, titled Houdini, promotes the concept of moving forward and personal growth. The other songs, including End of an Era, Training Season, These Walls, Watcha Doing, French Exit, Illusion, Falling Forever, Anything for Love, Maria and Happy for You, celebrate the power of a positive outlook in life.

According to British magazine Tatler, Dua Lipa's latest album topped the charts in 11 countries soon after its release. In the UK, it became the biggest album debut from a UK artist in 2024 and garnered the highest Week 1 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.

In addition to her Asian tour, Dua Lipa is gearing up for the first few shows in support of her new album in Berlin, Pula and Nimes this June. Furthermore, the Houdini singer will headline the Glastonbury Festival on June 28 at the Pyramid Stage and host a special concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on October 17.

Dua Lipa visited India last year during Christmas and explored the majestic forts and palaces of Rajasthan. The Levitating singer was also spotted in Delhi.
