The Hope and Ruin, Brighton 17 Jan 2016
Brighton’s traveller style venue, The Hope and Ruin became Dua Lipa’s third official live appearance. Complete with a tiara, dog choker and dressed head to toe in back strutting her 3 inch killer boots it’s hard to question Dua’s vision. Pop image on fleek and inhaled confidence anyone would think this girl had been doing this for years. Let I be know her entrance to stage exceeded room temperature within the opening minute.
No-one likes a bragger but believe me when I say the only way to describe her live set is Sex. Having booked the ticket solely on hype track“Be The One” the only way to describe her heated set was like getting attached to a one night stand!
The 9 track set listing was full of flirtatious boiling desire that left you feeling smitten. From feeling bad together to finding a new love Dua knows just how to fore play the crowds reaction. The climax hit when stand-out single “Be Your One” left the crowd in a state of undeniable attraction for her forth-coming or should I say fore-cuming album.
The intimacy of a 150 capacity venue maximising her popping-candy base tunes I’m pretty sure those who were in attendance of this show are ready for the next level.
