Dua Lipa had to cancel a concert on the 26th of June due to an ear infection. The singer had to postpone her performance for fear of an insidious infection, one which could permanently damage her eardrum.
The 22-year-old performed in front of her fans in Denver, Colorado, delivering some of her most popular hits, but only for a moment, when she suddenly stopped and left the stage.
Lipa stopped mid-performance – after just three songs – and told the crowd that she contracted an ear infection earlier in the week. The singer informed her fans that she feared permanent damage to her hearing; it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Durning her appearence at the Filmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado, Dua, while holding back tears, told the crowd that she “really tried to push through for this show,” because she really wanted to perform, but she just couldn’t go on.
Lipa then left the stage and said she couldn’t continue. The singer added, “I will be back, I’m so sorry, thank you so much.” Later on, Dua took to both Instagram and Twitter to say “sorry” to fans of the show, writing, “I’m so very sorry.”
Lipa is clearly dedicated to her art and her fans. She has been a consistent performer ever since she began recording songs and putting them on YouTube when she was 14-years-old.
Dua’s mother gave birth to her in London, England, following their immigration from Kosovo, after they left in the 1990’s. She went back to Kosovo with her family in 2008, when she was just 12-years-old.
Her father, Dukagjin Lipa, was also a singer. Curiously, her first name, Dua, means “Love,” in Albanian, something she hated as a kid, but eventually grew to like over time. Later on in life, she realized there wasn’t a need for a stage name.
