Dua Lipa’s Studio 2054 livestream performance will feature some heavy-hitting guest starts, including Elton John, Miley Cyrus, and Bad Bunny. Friday’s performance promises a futuristic and wide-ranging show, based on its description from the performer’s website.
STUDIO 2054 IS DUA LIPA’S KALEIDOSCOPIC ROCKET FUELLED JOURNEY THROUGH TIME, SPACE, MIRRORBALLS, ROLLER DISCOS, BUCKET HATS, BELTING BEATS, THROBBING BASSLINES AND AN ABSOLUTE SLAM DUNK OF THE BEST OF TIMES IN GLOBAL CLUB CULTURE THROUGHOUT THE DECADES. MORE LIVE MOVIE THAN REGULAR LIVE SHOW, STUDIO 2054 IS AN ELECTRIFYING EXPERIENCE THAT SEES DUA SING, DANCE, RIDE ON THE RHYTHM, WALK THE BALLROOM AND DOWNRIGHT OWN THE DANCEFLOOR WITH AN INTERSTELLAR CAST OF GUEST STARS, SURPRISE PERFORMERS, ACROBATS AND ARTISTS TO TRACKS FROM HER DEBUT ALBUM, THE MULTI PLATINUM “FUTURE NOSTALGIA” AND HER MOST RECENT “CLUB FUTURE NOSTALGIA:”.
Elton John was the final guest announced for the show, which is streaming live from a warehouse “filled with custom-made sets including Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus, FKA Twigs, Bad Bunny and J Balvin” according to NME.
“It’s my absolute pleasure and honour to announce Elton John will be joining me at Studio 2054 this Friday,” Lipa said. “A one of a kind global musical icon, singer-songwriter and flawless performer, it’s going to be spectacular! He is truly musical royalty and I am elated that we will be appearing together.”
Tickets are still available for the performance, which will feature songs from the recent Future Nostalgia album, as well as its remixes, as well as Lipa’s self-titled debut.
“I loved speaking to Dua when we met up to talk on Instagram Live a few weeks ago, she is incredibly smart and talented. So when she asked me to be part of Studio 2054 I said ‘yes!’ in a heartbeat,” said John, whose Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour was halted due to COVID and is set to resume with European dates in the summer of 2021. “It’s amazing to be part of a live performance when live music just isn’t happening right now and especially in such a colourful and creative way. If you’re going to do virtual live music then this is the way to do it.”
Access to the performance runs $18.50, with VIP access coming for $25.
