Last night (June 5), Dua Lipa took over the Waldbühne in Berlin, Germany to kickstart her short run of ‘Radical Optimism’ headlining shows before embarking on a run of European festival performances.

During her Berlin show, she performed a number of tracks from her latest album, while throwing in classics and even her dancey collaboration with Elton John.

The singer began her set with ‘Training Season’, before diving into a performance of ‘One Kiss’, which she recorded with Calvin Harris. She then moved on to ‘Illusion’, ‘Break My Heart’ and ‘Levitating’.

Checkout footage from the show below.

After a short break, Dua Lipa returned to the stage for the live debut of the ‘Radical Optimism’ cut ‘These Walls’. Watch fan-shot footage of the performance below.

Later in her set, Dua Lipa pulled out a cover of ‘Cold Heart’, which she recorded and released with Elton John and Australian electronic trio PNAU in 2021.

Dua Lipa will next continue with other dates in Croatia and France on the ‘Radical Optimsm’ tour before embarking on a festival run in Europe – notably, a headlining set at Glastonbury Festival, along with Poland’s Open’er Festival, Belgium’s Rock Werchter, Spain’s Mad Cool Festival and Portugal’s NOS Alive Festival.

So far, Lipa’s only dates in the US for the year are at Austin City Limits in Texas, where she will perform on October 5 and 12. A week later, she will perform a one-night engagement at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

In a three-star review of ‘Radical Optimism’, Thomas Smith wrote for NME: “‘Radical Optimism’ is insular and keen to capture the highs and lows of a personal relationship and little beyond that. Perhaps it’s unfair to hold Lipa too strongly against what might have been a throwaway comment in a profile too literally, but ‘Radical Optimism’ offers little else to latch on.”
