An incessant screaming as an echo to each word, each phrase that came out of the coveted mouth of Dua Lipa traveled with the wind from the north of the City of Buenos Aires. Thus, the hysteria that the most beautiful face of global pop generated in this part of the world was transformed and multiplied. And she, seductive as always, as never before, fueled the tension by giving her crowd everything she came for: looks, wiggles, kisses, caresses, dedications, promises, greetings in Spanish.

Euphoric fans who camped out for weeks to win the fence, others with signs proposing to the diva to have a little fernecito, families with the youngest to cocochito, the most lagging in the back field trying to see something of the rumor that came from the stage , residents of the balconies of Ortega y Gasset street who set up improvised VIPs to connect with the party that was happening down there: everyone wanted to see SOME of her exotic beauty, whatever it was.

Unlike Beyoncé, Dua Lipa still hasn’t gotten tired of being sexy. Thus, on the stage and catwalk of the Campo Argentino de Polo she paraded her charms like the model that she also is. And she shared her indestructible hegemonic bitchie aura with those effective bombshells she’s been shaking shoulders with all over the world. “Let’s get physical”, she asked for it on the move and in the first chorus of the night, in case there was any doubt.

From minute zero she also planted her concept, this future nostalgia as a compass and sentimental education: one foot in the past -with all those rhythmic and melodic details reminiscent of old successes-, another in the future towards which it is projected, and a present to pure enjoyment in which there is no other possibility than to dance this blend of hits. Disco, baby, disco, she suggests her with her retro-kink dance-pop.

The work of the band that accompanied her -a trio of men in charge of guitar, bass/keyboard, drums, plus a keyboardist and four backup singers- was testimonial, almost accessory: the British diva relied more on the musical and vocal tracks, as well as in the choir of her people. She doesn’t bother to hide that she doesn’t sing live all the time and that doesn’t seem to bother anyone here either. Her dancers’ body held her in underlining the sensuality of the matter, but that’s it. The staging is austere and relies heavily on Dua’s total beauty, which is amplified on the screens as if nothing else was needed. Or is more needed?

A “Let’s get the party started!” in Spanish to harangue (before “New Rules”); a twerk at the foot of the microphone (“Pretty Please”); the mischievous dedication of “Good in Bed” to a lucky fan, in which she knelt down, caressed herself, pretended to touch herself and ended up on the floor to sing the chorus in her eyes, while she swung her legs against her bottom . In those gestures, she represents what (almost) all the witnesses of the night want but cannot.

Something typical in this kind of shows are the costume changes that accompany the aesthetics of each of the moments established in the script. Dua came out on stage wearing a lace catsuit and gloves, all emerald color, as if the Little Mermaid had spread the pigment from her tail through her body. She then changed into a shiny, tailless bodysuit with which she freed her legs, just in time for the slower, mellow songs. For the evening’s EDM moment, in which she turned the cool into full summer weather with quotes from Calvin Harris, Modjo and Daft Punk, she donned a sheer pink one-piece swimsuit.

In this block came one of the most anticipated songs of the night, especially by the more familiar and less faithful audience: “Cold Heart”, that mashup assembled with three Elton John classics (“Sacrifice”, “Rocketman”, “Where’s The Shoorah?”) and the voices of the two of them. While Elton’s image followed everything from the screens, Dua unfolded an Argentine rag and one of her dancers waved the rainbow flag of pride.

The last change of clothes brought the end of the show. Thus, a tight golden suit from the Galactic Falcons set well combined the lasers that lit up the sky in the allegorical “Future Nostalgia”. For “Levitating” several giant balls in the shape of a full moon appeared in the audience, in tune with that catchy verse that says: “You, moonlight, you’re my starlight / I need you all night, come on, dance with me” .

After a “I love you so much” followed by the promise to see each other again tomorrow, Dua said goodbye with “Don’t Start Now”. In the last few seconds of the choreo, she did a few tango steps as if to imply that she knows where she stands. And she winked her right eye at the exact moment when two confetti bombs were detonated, shooting rainbow confetti, as a last show of special affection for her LGBT + public.
