Dua Lipa Had To Cancel Her Tour Dates With Bruno Mars To Get Oral Surgery

Getting your wisdom teeth removed: for the average young adult, it’s basically a rite of passage. It’s painful and frightening, and can even be a little funny (have you seen some of these aftermath videos?).

For Dua Lipa, the need for oral surgery to remove her wisdom teeth couldn’t come at a worse time. Eek!


Your girls been blessed with 33 teeth. I’ve always been an overachiever. ???

Lipa’s surgery comes in the middle of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic World Tour, where she is the opening artist. She has canceled two performances in Brisbane on March 14-15. The “New Rules” singer sent her regrets to fans on social media, sharing a video where she is seen holding an ice pack to her cheek to help ease the pain.

The London-born artist claimed her rise to fame in 2017 with her self-titled LP Dua Lipa, which included hits like “New Rules,” “Blow Your Mind (Mwah),” and “IDGAF.” The album led to a record-breaking five nominations at the 2018 BRIT Awards, which took place on February 21. She was nominated for British Artist Video of the Year, British Single, and Mastercard British Album of the Year, and won British Solo Female Artist and British Breakthrough Act. Lipa has gotten the most BRITA Awards Nominations ever for a female solo artist.

We’re wishing her a safe and speedy recovery so she can get back to what she does best.

Her self-titled tour to promote her LP will resume in Hong Kong on May 1st, and she will make her way to the U.S. over the summer.
