On Monday (30 November), it was announced that the concert was watched live by five million viewers, including more than 1.9m unique log-ins from China, 95,000 from India and 263,264 tickets sold across regular ticketing platforms.

Thanking her fans for watching, Lipa wrote on Instagram: “I am BEYOND excited to let you know that Studio 2054 had over 5 MILLION viewers globally on Friday night !!! - thank you so much to everyone for tuning in!!”

It was also announced that the concert would be able to stream until Sunday (6 December), with tickets costing £7.50 and available to buy here.

A representative for Lipa’s management company Tap Music said that while the estimated five million viewers was based on more than one person watching each stream, the real number could be “closer to eight or nine million”.
