Dua Lipa invites fans to “Studio 2054,” a multifaceted performance with music, theatre, and dance, streaming online as part of the American Express UNSTAGED series. Surprise guests will join Dua, and “Studio 2054” will feature an impressive cast of musicians, dancers, skaters, aerialists, and acrobats. The event is streaming on November 27, 2020—at various times, depending on the country you’re streaming from—on LIVENow.
“Studio 2054” redefines what a show can look like. Shot in a massive warehouse, it celebrates the unconventional as Dua navigates custom built sets and features tracks from Future Nostalgia, Club Future Nostalgia, and her debut album. The show blends fantasy and reality, and elements from past and present pop culture.
American Express is offering exclusive Card Member packages for the once-in-a-lifetime show. The Studio 2054 package comes with entry to the virtual event, access to the pre-show warmup and post-show party, and bonus video content only accessible to American Express Card Members. They’re also offering the Cool package, which comes with all the Studio 2054 package offerings, plus an exclusive sweatshirt designed for American Express Card Members. The final, top-tier package has already sold out—in addition to all the Cool package perks, the Levitating Lounge package also came with a signed Future Nostalgia album and a virtual group meet-and-greet and photo op with Dua Lipa a few days after the show.
American Express has hosted a slew of enviable virtual concerts this year—most recently, Alicia Keys performing her new album and Sam Smith from Abbey Road Studios—to continue offering audiences the best culture and entertainment, even during a year when live concerts are off the table. Their American Express UNSTAGED series has long since drawn some of the biggest names in music. And that reputation only continues as they prepare to host Dua Lipa’s upcoming virtual performance “Studio 2054.” So don't miss out and get your tickets here.
