Ariana Grande Announces Sweetener North American Tour

Ariana Grande is having a pretty terrible fall so far. She and Pete Davidson’s highly public engagement fell apart last month, shortly after her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller died tragically of an overdose.

But it appears she’s taking a “throw yourself into work” approach to her troubles. Today she’s finally announced she’s taking Sweetener on the road. The first leg of her tour will kick off in Albany in March and spend three months circling North America before wrapping up back in New York at Madison Square Garden. American Express members can get tickets from 11/1 at 10AM to 11/3 at 10PM. No word on public onsale times just yet.

Her manager Scooter Braun suggested in August that she’d be going on the road, but Grande shared tweets in September indicating that she was hesitant to tour and plans had been postponed.

Grande is also almost certainly at work on her next project, although Sweetener, just dropped in August. Earlier this month, she teased a clip of her back in the studio singing an unreleased track, and tweeted “music is the best medicine” and “can’t wait for you guys to start being weird ag5 detectives…” Yesterday, in response to fans’ pestering, she more or less confirmed that a new album is well underway, replying “yes” to a fan asking if she had a title for the new album yet, and “hehehe idk” to another inquiring if we’d see it before 2019.

Those not ready to let go of the Sweetener Era (circ. August 17, 2018-present) can catch Grande at their local arena.
