MISE À DAY
Dua Lipa proudly defended her title as the new princess of pop on Monday night in front of a packed Bell Center. The young Brit delivered there with her tour Future Nostalgia a backfiring and irresistible concert that her 15,000 fans are not close to attending. forget.
Dua Lipa fans have been waiting for it for a while now; the show being first scheduled for last February, the singer finally burned the boards of the amphitheater on Monday evening, after four years of absence in the metropolis.
The singer published a photo of her with his brother Gjin in a park in the metropolis, Monday, on his Instagram account.
And she didn't waste a single second in setting fire to the powder, arriving on stage shortly after 9 p.m. with the Physical bomb, greeted by a swollen and incredibly loud crowd. Won in advance, these fans? Certainly. But the young popstar has spared no effort to live up to this welcome usually reserved for the greatest.
Worthy of the greats
Because it's ultimately a concert worthy of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Cher and other pop icons that Dua Lipa has been unpacking for several months on stages around the planet. Projections, giant screens, an army of dancers, vibrant and colorful costumes, confetti and other impressive visual effects… it's all there. And all this nicely coats the entire Future Nostalgia album., which she unpacks in 95 minutes well packed.
It must be said that it is thanks to this opus, launched in 2020, that she inherited this title of new princess of the pop, making a splash on the charts of the planet.
To say that the fans crammed inside the Bell Center were overexcited would be an understatement as the atmosphere was electric. In fact, it's been a long time since we've seen a concert so warmly received; spectators from the floor and entire bleachers leaping to their feet before Dua Lipa even took the stage. And for the majority of them, their butts did not touch their bench once, singing in chorus the Don't Start Now, Break My Heart and Love Again, all delivered without downtime.
At a glance, we can certainly say that they have forgotten the gloom of the pandemic that has affected them for more than two years now. And that was good to see.
Let's just say it, Dua Lipa isn't exactly known for her dancing skills. But his stage presence, his vocal skills and his showmanship are more than enough to make up for his sometimes mechanical and wobbly movements.
In fact, we bet that the majority of his fans do not notice nothing so much she throws dust in their eyes, dazzling them with her catchy pop rhythms. And that's exactly what a true princess of pop should do.
At press time, the concert was still in full swing, the dancers of Dua Lipa offering a musical interlude during a costume change. The One Kiss, Cold Heart and Levitating were still expected, but were indeed planned for the evening's program.
