Dua Lipa has announced that Tove Lo, Griff and Angèle will be the support acts on her 2022 UK and European tour.

The pop singers will hit the road next April for the ‘Future Nostalgia’ tour – also the name of Lipa’s second album.

The UK leg of the tour will kick off in Manchester next year, visiting Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle, Glasgow, Nottingham, Cardiff and Liverpool, rounded up by two shows at London’s O2 Arena.

Announcing the support acts on social media today (November 22), Lipa wrote: “Slowly making my way around the world and taking the girls with me: Griff, Tove Lo and Angèle. COME SEE US ON THE FUTURE NOSTALGIA TOUR.”

The European tour will start in Antwerp, Belgium in May, and finish up in Stockholm, Sweden the following month.

Before the UK tour starts the ‘Cold Heart’ singer will tour North American from February to April with Caroline Polachek and Lolo Zouaï as support, with Megan Thee Stallion set to perform as a special guest at the Denver, Tulsa, and Phoenix shows.

“I’m so excited to see you guys there and i’m bringing the ultimate girl gang,” Lipa wrote on social media.

The singer has faced a number of touring delays due to the pandemic, with the UK tour originally due to start in May 2020 before being pushed back three times.

Elsewhere, it was recently announced that Lipa’s team, TaP Music, is set to work with the BBC to choose the UK’s entry for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.

The singer expressed her support for the change: “I’m a proud Brit whilst also being a proud Kosovan. I’m happy to lend my manager to the cause. I’ll be cheering them on!”

Eurovision royalty ABBA also suggested that they would write the next UK entry if Dua Lipa was to sing it.

ABBA‘s Andersson told BBC Breakfast earlier this month (November 5): “Picking an act is one thing, writing a song is different. So you need both a great song and a good act.”

When the BBC asked the Swedish hitmakers, who rose to fame after winning the competition in 1974 with ‘Waterloo’, if they would consider writing the UK entry, Andersson said: “Oh, a UK entry? I don’t know.”

Ulvaeus replied “No” when Andersson turned to him.

But then Andersson said: “But what’s the risk? You can’t be worse than last”, to which Ulvaeus replied: “No, but it needs to be a really good act to write for, yeah.”

Andersson then suggested, smiling: “Dua Lipa”, to which, his bandmate agreed: “Yes.”
