Ariana Grande Announces ‘Sweetener’ World Tour Dates

Ariana Grande today announced the initial run of dates for her “Sweetener” world tour, promoting her chart-topping latest album of the same name. The first leg of The Sweetener World Tour will begin in North America on March 18 in Albany, NY., and finish June 18 in New York, NY. at Madison Square Garden; more dates will follow.
American Express Card Members will get the first chance to buy tickets before the general public during a pre-sale beginning Thursday, November 1 at 10 a.m. local time through Saturday, November 3 at 10 p.m. local time.
The announcement comes after several tumultuous months for the singer. In May of 2017 a terrorist exploded a bomb outside her concert in Manchester, England, killing 22 people; she postponed several dates but returned to the city to headline an emotional benefit concert just two weeks later, and finished the tour.
Earlier this year, she split up with longtime boyfriend Mac Miller and weeks later announced her engagement to “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson; Miller died of an apparent drug overdose on Sept. 7 and Grande called off her engagement to Davidson a few weeks later.
