Charli XCX has announced two ‘Pop 2’ shows, set to take place in London and Paris.

The Pop 2 mixtape was released back in December and featured contributions from Carly Rae Jepsen, , Alma, Tove Lo, Mykki Blanco, Brooke Candy, Caroline Polachek, Cupcakke, and more.

Announcing the shows on Twitter, Charli XCX wrote: “POP 2 LONDON & POP 2 PARIS. 19TH & 20TH JUNE. WITH SPECIAL GUESTS. TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY” You can see the tweet below.


The artist is currently on tour with Taylor Swift, where she performed a new song on the opening night.

“This is a brand new song,” she told the crowd. “I’ve never played it before ever! It’s [called] ‘5 In The Morning’.”

A fan posted a clip of the track to Twitter, enthusing: “UM HELLO CHARLI XCX PLAYING A NEW SONG FOR THE FIRST TIME AND ITS A BANGER??? WE STAN????”

Charli XCX recently appeared on a new track titled ‘Girls’ with Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha and Cardi B.


The song has drawn criticism for its “tone-deaf lyrics” about bisexuality. Rita Ora later apologised for any offense caused.

“‘Girls’ was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life,” she wrote. “I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey.

“I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone,” she continued. “I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone. Looking forward, I hope that continuing to express myself through my art will empower my fans to feel as proud of themselves as I’m learning to feel about who I am.”
