Ariana Grande kicks off “Sweetener Tour”: Setlist + Video

on March 19, 2019, 9:29am

Ariana Grande kicked off her “Sweetener World Tour” in Albany, New York on Monday night.

The setlist spanned 29 songs divided into five distinct acts. Much of the material came from her two most recent LPs, Sweetener and thank u, next, including the live debuts of “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored”, “7 rings”, “Bloodline”, and “NASA”. She also sang past hits such as “Everytime”, “One Last Time”, “Break Free”, and “No Tears Left to Cry”. The evening concluded with an encore performance of “thank u, next”.

According to BBC News, the setlist originally included “Ghostin'” and “Imagine”, from thank u, next, but Grande ultimately decided they were “too heavy” to sing live. Both songs address her relationship with late rapper Mac Miller.

Grande did pay tribute to Miller in another way, however. According to Us, Miller’s music — including his song “Dang!” — was played over the arena’s PA system prior to the show’s start.

The stage was erected in the shape of a ring (natch) and featured two spherical video screens. In the venue’s concourse, there were voter registration booths encouraging fans to register ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
