It’s been said a thousand times, but it bears repeating: Future Nostalgia was the ultimate lockdown record. Released in the midst of the pandemic, Dua Lipa’s sophomore album was met with overwhelming critical acclaim for reviving disco-pop in the mainstream, spawning chart-topping singles such as Don’t Start Now and Levitating in the process (the latter memorably made history as the longest-charting song by a female artist on the Billboard Hot 100).

Dua defeated the so-called “sophomore slump” that has cursed artists in the past and supplied listeners – particularly queer listeners – with exactly what they needed while sequestered in their homes: a slick collection of intelligent, club-ready disco anthems that invoked a sense of excitement of post-lockdown nightlife.

This weekend, Dua finally opened the UK leg of her Future Nostalgia Tour in Manchester’s AO Arena after numerous delays as a result of COVID.
