Dua Lipa has announced a massive show at London’s Royal Albert Hall: here’s how to get tickets

There aren’t many – if any – musicians on the planet right now as popular as Dua Lipa. The Londoner has scored countless chart-topping singles and won plenty of awards – and now, to celebrate the release of new album Radical Optimism, she’s announced a huge homecoming show.
