Ariana Grande is back in the UK! Ariana has started her Sweetener World Tour with her first show at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday 17 August 2019.
As part of the tour, she will also be heading to Birmingham, Glasgow and Sheffield to do some performances.
Ariana announced she would be headlining Pride festival in Manchester, and said on her social media: “we are still working on something a little more special for you guys. it takes a while to put these things together but hopefully i can tell you when i see you at pride. i love u. hope that’s alright.”
For those of you who were lucky enough to get your hands on tickets to see Ariana, here are some things you should know ahead of the show.
1. Security is pretty tight
There is a big focus on making the Sweetener tour safe for everyone attending. Due to the attack in Birmingham.
Ariana tagged a post saying that she was encouraging all her fans that were coming to have a small plastic bag. She also said that the security would be very ‘strict and smooth’. Fans can only carry one clear bag and it can’t be any bigger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″. All your belongings must be visible inside the bag (so no bags within bags!).
If you have any medication, medical items can be taken with you if need them and these will be inspected at the venue.
Cameras and recording devices aren’t allowed in the venue, although mobile phones are allowed.
If you’re under 15, make sure you have a responsible adult over the age of 18 with you.
2. The setlist is epic
Fans can expect to hear a load of songs, after the first London performance included a whopping 24 in total.
Tracks came from her two latest albums Sweetener and Thank U Next, as well as her previous albums.
There will be tunes that make you want to get up and dance, as well as heartfelt ballads that you can sing along to at the top of your lungs. You better get learning those words!
