It’s official, Ariana Grande is heading back out on tour.
The superstar announced 42 dates across North America for the first leg of the “Sweetener World Tour,” set to kick off March 18th, 2019 in Albany, NY and finishing off on October 13th, 2019 at Hallenstadion, in Zurich, Switzerland.
The “Thank U, Next” singer dropped her fourth studio album, Sweetener in August of last year.
A special show is being planned in Manchester that will remember those killed in the May 22nd, 2017 bombing at her show there.
Grande has been very active on Twitter and wants her fans to be as ready for this tour and album as she is. She has gone through a lot the past several months, from her engagement to Pete Davidson to mourning her ex boyfriend, the late Mac Miller.
No word on whether she will debut new music on the tour, but there are plenty of rumors and analysis of when the second part of the Sweetener project will appear.
According to Hollywood Life, Grande’s ex-boyfriend, comedian Ricky Alvaraz might be hitting hitting the road with her. All that drama — and more — will certainly be revealed next month.
